Old Tigers...

This is a new prismacolor drawing just finished today titled...

"Old Tigers sensing the end are at their most fierce...and they go down fighting"

(A Birthday gift for my Husband who was grousing about getting old...LOL)




The size is 14 x 18 inches so the face is actually life size. Drawn on 4 ply white museum board. Believe it or not I used 21 different color pencils to create that fur! I had fur overload by the time I finished...or I am "fur-sighted" now...LOL!

I photographed the various stages and a close up as well to share.

Re: Old Tigers...

Stunning! I LOVE it!
May I ask how you handled the whiskers? Did you leave the white of the support and put color around them, or did you use a white pencil to draw them over the other colors?

Amazing !
The fur is just perfect, the eyes are so deep and the whiskers look so natural.
Excellent job.
