I just love the foreshortening you used...it makes the tiger look like he is in motion...ready to pounce on a prey. Cats (domestic and wild) make such fun subjects. I also loved the treatment in the colors for the background. GREAT JOB!!

I like the foreshortening, stripes and the bone stucture...very nice. I don't know what the reference photo showed, but his legs seem alittle flat. I think it needs more value in them. Other than that I like it. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

I went to the zoo several times this spring to take pics of the animals. The beasties have been most cooperative--it seems like they all pose for me. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/wink.gif

Here's a 14x20 tiger done in soft pastels. I added his whiskers and a little more foreground foliage after the picture was taken, but otherwise this is pretty much the way he looks.

There's only one thing tougher than painting a young child live, it's painting a tiger live!

Nice job at capturing this fine creature. Beautiful pose and composition.

I like this one also, but for some reason I like the other one better, it just talks to me more, but I wish I could paint half as well.


Today - Im going to make someone smile !
