Re: "Untitled Tiger" - Wip

Thanks everyone!

Got a bit more done on this.



Sorry for the poor photo, the lighting was quite bad because of snow.

I feel like I have been neglecting this piece as I have been working on two acrylic pieces. I have done more work on the left side which is reaching completion. I am planning to darken it some more after I have completed the rest of the tiger and I decided to put in the whiskers too.

I hope to finish it soon.

All C and C welcome and thanks for looking!

Re: "Untitled Tiger" - Wip

Thanks Birdlover!

I hate this photo I took of it, it makes it look kind of messy on the left side. It is a sumatran tiger so that is the reason for the kind of faux mane.

Oh I also forgot to say that I have took your comment on board Patrick about the foliage.

Re: "Untitled Tiger" - Wip

Irfan, wow oh wow, this is great. Sorry for lagging behind on this with the holidays. Those eyes are amazing and seem to be the main focal point to me so the, limb and any foliage is just extra eye candy for me. Be careful with your shading where the limb and the tiger's head converge. I am anxious to see how and where you work in any additional foliage.

Re: "Untitled Tiger" - Wip

Thanks everyone for your kind comments!

Thanks Harold for the advice with the shadowing. I don't know if I have messed it up further by darkening or not.

Another update.



I really hate taking photographs of this piece because the sandpaper I have used makes it shiny. I also lose all my scratching details in the shadowed areas. Trust me there are scratches there.

The limb still needs a lot of work. It is still looking blotchy. I wanted to enter this into a competition but I doubt I will finish it in time, or even get it to the standard I want.

As always all C and Cs are welcome!!(Tell me the truth)

Thanks for looking!

oooooo good suggestion for a title!

Your tiger is looking fantastic, Irfan! He is definitely set behind that branch now.
