The depth and texture of this piece are amazing! Being a big tiger fanatic myself, I have to say this is the most beautiful rendering I have seen in a while. The different colors used give it a unique flare that is aestheticly pleasing to the eye. The techniques used give it an etherial grace and is absolutely stunning. I would definitely buy prints of this to put in my house...definitely a collector item for a tiger enthusiast as myself! The shading in the background really makes the clouds pop out off the page and really brings out the beauty of this wonderful animal.
This is my first criticism concerning animals. This tiger looks very real, particular his blues eyes . It almost looks like a photo, but with a background unrealistic. Because of hairs are white, it blends very well decor. It is magical and that I find very beautiful, it is the way it has been colored. I find that drawing felines is very hard, especially the front. So I think the position of the face of the tiger puts more value. I do not have much inspiration to criticize, because I think it is perfect. You handle the colors, that's what I like most in a work. Especially when it has been done in traditional art instead of digital . well this is what ended my critique .
I think i will probably have another go with this one,i feel in my heart that something is missing here,something have eluded me but i just cant point it out...i only know its missing. But thank you very very much Barry!
Ah, but it is an ability and a talent! I am right there with you on the nights part lol. I should be going to bed because I have to work, but wind up jumping outta bed to continue on what I happen to be drawing at the time lol!
