How to draw a puma-cougar-mountain lion
Let`s learn how to draw a Puma. However, this amazing animal has many names-more than 40 in English! When I read about it, I immediately thought that learning to draw such a beast is easier than learning all his names. I fell in love with Puma when I read Castaneda: during the journey through the Sonora desert, don Juan encouraged Carlos with messages that the surrounding mountains were swarming with mountain lions.
How to draw Puma – lesson 1

Muzzle is quite typical for a large predatory cat.

The body color of the puma is very uniform – it is either grayish-beige or yellow-brown.
