Here is the finished tiger portrait. I wasn't sure I'd get it done before the weekend but thankfully had a good day today with it. Several aspects of this drawing are really pleasing to me (looking at it technically from the artist's point of view) The sky and particularly the water as I've done these without using any reference at all. The reference photographs of the tiger were of him standing in a wire enclosure so I've adjusted the fur on the lower areas to look wet. I'm looking forward to seeing it framed although I won't be able to do it until next week.
