    I’ve never done any kind of wild cat.
    Let me try the Tiger first...
    I’ve started with the very basic mapping of his black marks.
    I’m telling you, I found this task being not as easy as I thought ;)
    Mapping all those subtle shapes ...
    Lol ;)

    Thank you for watching ;) E856BC2B-53CF-4C4F-9A7A-11F2DEA5E4FC.jpeg

    Off to a great start! I like the subtle build-up, try to keep that mode going and go slow with it. Don't bring in colors too soon.

    Thank you Franc for good advises!
    So far I find it much more complicated than my latest Red Fox... It’s because of the black straps separated by light fur... It’s making my brain work harder to get focused on those lines ;)
    Thank you Franc ;)

    Another update dear friends.
    I’m very appreciated,that you were interested with my very beginning on this, and thank you all for keen comments and suggestions!

    Because I’m amateur, I’ve noticed I’m kind off approaching to every each painting a bit different?
    The latest one, “Dreaming” - I left Hana without the eyes having done,for very long time... ;)

    This time I’m starting at the Tiger’s jaw?
    I think, it’s because it’s the darkest spot on the painting (except the background).
    I’ve finished off mapping the rest of his black stripes as well.
    I like to be aware where they are ;)
    That’s it for today’s work ;)
    Thank you guys for watching... 9162159D-1228-4102-9A0E-5C663A17EDA5.jpeg

    Thank you HellBird ...
    I’ll be improving it over and over yet, with hope it’ll look much better at the final?

    You're VERY WELCOME James !!!
    Please be aware that I'm on my learning curve as well, and I'm making mistakes as I learn...
    At this early stage I've mapped the tigers black straps only,and have decided to start at his mouth to begin with...
    His mouth has no details but it's pitch black,also the bottom of his cheek isn't visible,but blended with the mouth...
    Thus I've no details to deal with,and I'm far away from making up those mouth's details on my own...
    There's some principal that artists repeating - paint what you see.
    This is exactly I'm trying at this stage regarding the mouth - it's pitch black, so I'm making it pitch black...
    Whether I'm wrong or right - I'll see it later on?
    Good luck with your tiger !!!
