Twilight Hunter by Fuz-Caforio-Art Twilight Hunter by Fuz-Caforio-Art
Acrylic on canvas. 60 x 70cm. I always wondered how leopards roam at night within their territories. Do they simply wander about or do they follow some invisible celestial map that we mere humans aren't aware of. I would like to believe it's the latter!

Such a fantastically gorgeous piece this is - all of your work is of course but this one stands out to me. Not just for the amazing detailing, the night light of the starry skies, but also the story behind it. Many animals use the moon and stars to navigate, so maybe Leopards aren't any different either! Brilliant.

Fantastic! I love the peaceful atmosphere and the colours. I'd maybe prefer a little more space there but the painting itself is perfect :)

Wow he's beautiful. I love the look on his face, in his eye, as if he's looking to the skies for hope, or maybe he sees something very inspiring...

You are officially one of my favorite wildlife artists on here! I really love that you go the extra mile and add interesting backgrounds with each animal -in this case, it makes the piece more dramatic and exciting! Keep up the great work! :clap:

They probably map their territory like most large predatory mammals... with scent ;) That's why they spend so much time spraying things within that territory; not just to tell others where the boundaries are, but to remind themselves.  They also spend very little time "roaming" aimlessly. If you're a nocturnal carnivore, you're spending most of your nighttime hours stalking and hunting, and in a leopard's case, dragging your kill up a tree to keep it out of the stomachs of local lions and hyenas (and jackals, and buzzards, and vultures, etc etc).

But the "invisible celestial map" is much more poetic, so let's go with that. :3

Thanks! I used 2 different (daylight) sources of reference for the anatomy of the leopard but the rest I made up. I tried to replicate the Southern night sky as accurately as possible so that the stars would make some sense, but I got lost along the way. Too many darned stars!

Do you offer prints ?
