This pencil portrait drawing of a Cougar was (obviously) drawn from a photograph, as I do not know anyone who owns a cougar. This brings up a rather obvious point: I often utilize photographs in my drawing. Children and animals do not sit still for portraits, especially for the amount of time I put into my drawings. The quality of the photograph directly affects the quality of the drawing, and I strive to make it look as un-photographic as possible by sometimes exaggerating the modeling.
