There's a Tiger watching me!

Yesterday was a bit of a marathon session in the studio as I wanted to make sure I had completed the tigers head before I take a short weekend break away.Having completed all the facial markings I treated myself to completing the eyes of the animal.I love it when,finally,the eyes are put in place and at last all that hard work pays off and suddenly the animal is right there looking back at you! I often save the completion of the eyes in a drawing for later in the piece,particularly after many long-hours spent building up the basics of the image,as a kind of little artists treat,the 'icing on the cake' if you like.i hope you are all enjoying this drawing coming together,have a great weekend.

Looking wonderful so far Clive.
I'm the opposite, I have to put the eyes in right at the start as can't bear staring at empty sockets LOL

haha I know what you mean sue,it can be tough to resist the temptation to put the eyes in at the outset especially as they can make or break the image
