Cheetah corporal is really similar to the Greyhound, with long legs and a tiny head.
Draw the back line and notice the high croup^
Its body looks rangy, muscled with no slightest hint of the fat. Every part of its body fits to the high speeds in which it pursues its prey. Its chest is wide with big and strong lungs. The torso is elongated, if to compare with lion`s torso, for example.
Draw the front legs:
Rear legs look bit longer than front legs, and slightly curved:
The paws are big and wide. Cheetah, like a dog, is not able to retract the claws. The stomach is visibly drawn in, that adds slenderness to animal`s image.
The head of a Cheetah looks surprisingly small. The muzzle is triangular with rounded ears. From the inner corners of the eyes to the chin there are two dark curved bands. And above the eyebrowswe see two dark spots –all this gives the muzzle of a Cheetah comically sad expression:
Depending on lighting conditions, cheetah`s coloring may look from white with brown spots to ginger with black spots.
I hope that now you have learned well how to draw a walking Cheetah.
