Unlike Choi Buk's landscape paintings that depict his character, this shows he was also good at painting animals that required detailed descriptions. The dynamic movement of the leopard going down a slope features strict tension and is likely to attack at any moment. In the description of the background, these paintings feature a damp atmosphere, which is a characteristic feature found in Choi Buk’s landscape paintings. These paintings demonstrates his elaborate description skill in expressing an object.
