This drawing was done with Prismacolor pencils on Strathemore Bristol vellum surface sheet


I am trying to get the photograph of the tiger up but having problems
Problem solved so you can now compare the two
Any cirque very welcome    Ray

Ray, I love your magnificent tiger.  Your coloring of the head and eyes is excellent and the fur detail is also very well done.  I would love to see the original to compare the mouth.  Something there seems off to me.  Not sure whether is got to do with the camera shot or the color or the contouring of the gums and teeth.  The gums look a little flat to me.

Ray,

The top half of the drawing is so very well done.  Great depth in the way the eyes are set.  Super fur.

Is the bottom half unfinished?  Or just a fade out?

Agree with Jill on the mouth.

 :thankyou: Annie for your comment

Jill thank you for your critique on the tiger the camera does show a bit of
fade I think a lot has to do with the light from the window I should have
scanned the picture in and it would show a better definition but the gums
on both the original and the drawing look a bit flat but I suppose a bit more
Shading would help but as you know we live and learn by our mistakes.

Thank you Mea for your kind comment but the picture is finished as far as I
am going to take it.
Kindest regards
Ray
