Sumatran Tiger drawing


After a little while away from big cat art it's time to get back into the swing of things with a portrait of a stalking sumatran tiger.this is quite a large image for me at 16"x10" and so will take a while to complete.i now have two drawing boards in my enlarged studio and i will be working on a commissioned piece on my second board,alternating between the two to keep things fresh.so far on this tiger piece i have been working on the background toning having already layered the piece twice with H grade pencil ive now moved onto HB and B grades.this is a time consuming process and will take several days to tone the background.

Your work is AMAZING! I haven't checked out your website yet, but I will. Your drawings are so realistic.I love it that you are self taught. It's especially encouraging for me, because I am mostly self taught myself. Although I have had some college studies and in my earlier years I took private art lessons as a kid, but I never went the whole college route (i.e. no degrees). I'm new to this blogging thing, but I just wanted to give you some much deserved praise for your work.
Best to you.
