Snow Leopard Fur Stock/Reference by FurLined
Snow Leopard Fur Stock/Reference
No idea if this will be useful to anyone, but figured I'd put it up anyway. This is a portion of the side of a Snow Leopard.

You may use this as reference or stock.

It's lovely to be able to see a Snow Leopard up close, and this one is certainly well cared for at the Cat Survival Trust, but it doesn't have the opportunity to roam and climb like wild one :(

I recently attended a wild cat photography day run by "Photographers on Safari" at the Cat Survival Trust near Welwyn (England). It gave great access, with only one layer of fencing between me and the cats (care needed to be taken as smaller cat breeds have no trouble fitting a paw and claws through the fence!). It was particularly lovely to see a Leopard Cat up close - I have a Bengal at home, a breed which has Leopard Cat genes in the mix.

I've posted a few of my favourite photos from the day here already, and will likely post more - you can see the full set of my favourite shots here on flickr:…

Like with many of my dA uploads, any of the photos in that set can be used as reference or as non-commercial stock as long as I'm given credit :).

I also have an account with Flickr on which I publish more of my photos (I tend to restrict what I upload to deviantART to those with a bit more artistic or aesthetic merit).

I've set quite a few of my images to be licensed as Creative Commons. If you wish to use one that is CC be sure to credit me by name and by linking to my dA profile or to the original picture here on dA. I'm open to granting permission to older images which I've not set to be CC, so feel free to ask about a given image.

Used some of your lovely images here:…

Cool - thanks for giving credit for the three of mine you used :). The first animation frame you've got my name on though, with the spotted cat with white socks and face (Bengal cross?), isn't one of my photos! You've got the two of Theo and one of Misty with my name against correctly :).

Oh yes, I know. That's my personal photo. I guess I accidentally put your name into that one as well. Thanks for letting me know!

You do your cats' beauty justice; I love your photos. Would it be okay if I sketched some of your photographs for anatomy practice? I can credit you for references if necessary. 
FurLined Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2015
Thank you - that's a lovely thing to say :).

I'm happy for you to sketch for practice - if you post them up on dA I'd be interested in seeing them (I'm always interested in seeing the use my photos get put to!). For just practice sketches I don't mind so much about credit, but it's still nice to be credited and if you think the references are useful then crediting the references may help others find them too!

Okay, thank you. If I get around to doing so, I'll credit you and give you a link. :)

Under the creative commons that you have chosen are we allowed to reference your photography and sell what we draw or paint?

Hi there,

I use the non-commercial version of the CC license - that's in part so people can't just make money directly off my photos with little work of their own, and also because some of the photos I've taken were taken in circumstances such that I don't have permission to grant commercial usage of the photo (e.g. photos at at zoos).

However I'm happy to consider individual cases, and often for works using photos for reference (drawings/paintings) I'm able and happy to grant permission for my photos to be used for such works which can be sold, especially as I love seeing what people do based on the photos.

So if you send me a private message saying which photos you may want to use then I can have a think and reply to let you know :)

Finally I want to express appreciation for you actually checking - not everyone does that, so thank you!
