Re: "Untitled Tiger" - Wip

Now that you mention it...it does kinda look like an eye. Just to throw out a couple of ideas...you could do 2 things...1) not worry about it until you're finished and then see if it is still distracting to you.... or ...2) darken and elongate the hole more and at one end stretch the hole like the branch has a narrow crack in it.(if that makes sense)

Re: "Untitled Tiger" - Wip

Thanks for your help and comments!! I am going to wait until I finish it before I do something to the wood.

I have also started some foliage and I am going to start an acrylic piece alongside this one so that I do not get bored and the 'freshness' remains.

Re: "Untitled Tiger" - Wip

Another small update! I have just had a lot of work from university so I have not had some time to work on this properly yet.



I have just put the base scratches on the other side of the face. The nose still needs a lot of work.

I have also added in a leaf, to get a feel for the foliage.

All C and Cs are welcome and thanks for looking!

I don't know how I missed this one until now. Looks amazing, Irfan. That first leaf really turned out great as well.

Re: "Untitled Tiger" - Wip

I like it a lot! I was thinking I hope the image doesn't get too confusing with all the background competing for attention, but then I thought, that's exactly the point. Tigers are designed that way so they and the background are confusing. Your goal will be to balance the two.

Re: "Untitled Tiger" - Wip

Thanks everyone! I am glad it is receiving great comments! I really appreciate the comments on the eyes as I had a lot of difficulty with them.

I am looking forward to working on this a whole lot more when I get my winter holidays!
