Bengal tiger cub update

I have now almost finished the tigers face,obviously the eyes will be left till last as usual.i am now working up some of the darker areas under the chin and around the edge of the face to give some definition to the outer, longer, more wispy fur layers at the extremities of the tiger's face.once ive completed the areas around it's face i can then erase in some of the longer hairs so that they overlap the body fur and look more realistic.similarly on the left hand side of the image i will tidy up the longer hairs so that they look more natural,this again will involve darkening the background tone and erasing in some finer hairs.

This is looking great, I have no idea how you avoid doing the eyes though as I generally can not wait to get them done ;p
