You are very talented and should be proud of this great work. I like how you used the background against the main figure.

Welcome back! Yes, it has been a while. You have picked up where you left off and I'm so impressed with the eyes. This little cub is concentrating on something quite close. Wonderfully done!

FYI....in the upper right hand corner of your thread, you will see a triangle outlined in red. If you click on that, with a problem, one of the moderators will get back to you. Let's say you uploaded and your photo is upside down. Let us know and we'll set thing right for you.

I love this. The teeny, tiny hairs are wonderful.
Is the background pastel or watercolor? I'm wondering how you get such a fine definition of the hair against the background.

Its all pastel Patricia ,mostly Unison and Sennelier for the background and very sharp pastel pencils for the details I'm happy you like it .

What a gorgeous painting! You did such nice work on the background so the tiger really stands out!

This hyper realistic cub against such a fluid and soft background takes my breath away. I am always stunned by the level of detail pastelists are able to achieve. Your skill is amazing.
