I'z just relaxin'... by Artsy50 I'z just relaxin'... by Artsy50
This time it's an Amur Tiger. I managed to totally ruin this one just as I was signing it. ;P I drew the whole thing upside down just so it would be easier for me to do the details. So, when it came to signing it. I forgot I was going to turn it rightside up and I started to sign it, in black paint pen, right above his furry belly... O.o!! Arghhhh!!! I was so angry! Sigh. But after a bit of frustrated thinking, I managed to cover it up with some white paint pen and then colored pencil and added all the extra snow, which I hadn't planned to add at all. :( ...I guess it's ok... I don't know. Sigh.

Thanks once again to :iconsooper-deviant: for the lovely reference photo. :D Please go and check out his wonderful gallery, you won't be disappointed.

Colored pencils on 98 lb. Colored Canson paper. With a bit of Black and White Sharpie paint pen.

Thanks for your faves and comments. They are, as always, appreciated.

very beautiful picture! the colors are fantastic, and blend well with the paper colors, and the pose is so cute! I also really like the goofy expression and that neat fur texture you have there, as it looks so realistic! one thing though that I would recommend is when drawing the stomach and legs (since it's rolling over) is to have a bit of a bulge where the belly would show behind the front legs, if possible, and perhaps a bit more definition on the paws. Anyway, it's a very cute picture, and again, THAT FUR~ it's so well done! honestly, it looks so fluffy I feel as if I could reach out and pat him~ so adorable! not to mention, those stripes were drawn so well, you can easily see them in the fur pattern, but they help bring out the furs texture, rather than take away from it... it's so nice! :D

:D Thank you for your comments. The reference photo I used didn't even have the hind legs or tail showing, so I sort of winged it there. :D Something for me to keep in mind for next time. :D :hug:

I think it's stunning! I'm glad I'm not the only one to make "silly blunders" (no offence intended to you!). I think your work around has really worked and I can't tell anything had gone wrong, so good save :) I guess the frustrating thing is that you the artist knows that it isn't what you had in mind so it's "blemished".... but then it's crazy how even the grand masters altered there work (revealed by X-ray) so we shouldn't be so harsh on ourselves.
