I completed a nice little Step-by-Step Leopard Eye tutorial to help out one of my students. They were struggling with the eye and thought it would be good to share my process on how I completed the realistic appearance of not only the eye, but the fur as well.

You can get the reference and line drawing FREE from my Tutorials Assets Page.

Also here are the supplies I used to complete this study as well as the time stamps to the different subject covered in the video.
