    There is no harm in not having unfinished paintings. For me, in average, 1 - 2 out of 3 paintings are not that great (and I like 1 out of 3). Every fifth or so I don't finish because I have run into a cul-de-sac. So what, it's just a painting. Sometimes it's better to make a fresh start instead of sinking further hours into a piece that just won't work.

    Thanks for your add Franc.
    It seems we’re totally opposite ;)
    As I mentioned earlier,I haven’t finish one piece and I still feel sorry ;)
    Wait a moment!
    TWO !!!
    Lol ;)
    I haven’t finish two, but the one I forgot about, was years ago, now I remember, I didn’t finish that piece,it was graphite pencil drawing ;)
    Anyway Franc, if I start a piece I’ll finish it, not because it’s a must, but because this is the way I do. I’m not painting unknown things, or anything alike, I’m painting wildlife, or portraits.
    There’s no time or any reason not to finish what I start...
    So every time I’m beginning the drawing,the aim is to get it done.
    If I don’t - it’s bothering me a lot.
    That’s me ;)
    All the best Franc ;)

    Hi all.
    I’ve been adding some background to separate the head...
    Some more detailed fur were done on the jaw and the cheek.
    For the rest fur,I’ve introduced some Imidazolone Brown (more reddish) ;)
    Lots of fur to be done - that’s for sure ;)
    Wait a moment,did I say I love wildlife arts?!
    I might swallow that words ;) Lol ;) D5940860-D75B-47FA-A2DE-1DF0D26F5736.jpeg

    Hi James.
    Thank you for kind words ;)
    You know, usually I’m not posting updates that often. For some reason I do now?
    I’m happy you like it/I were worry it’s boring ;)
    Regarding the size,you can always check the size at my first post, I’m usually describing a bit with the Claybord size ;)
    It’s 12”/16”, it’s my favourite size and I prefer to stick to it...
    Only the “Concerned” Red Fox is 16”/24...
    I liked to try to paint something larger...
    Probably I won’t do it again any soon...
    Larger size means to me more area to cover with paint,more job to be done,it takes longer as well... ;)
    You see, I have not portfolio to show my arts off.
    I need to make the arts more often, to have something to show.
    So defensive nicely smaller pieces are welcome ;)
    Cheers James ;)

    Latest boring update dear friends.
    It’s obvious,that the fur is taking ages for me to deal with ;)
    The progress is noticeable though-but very slow.
    Thank you for following,and your ONLY keen comments?
    Could you provide me with some constructive criticism PLEASE ;)
    I’m warning you-that if you DO NOT..,then I’ll be certain I know everything,and I’m the best of the best!
    Lol ;) hahahaaaa hahahaaa haaa ;) 2905716A-BD7C-4D8F-9912-146F6E3224FB.jpeg

    PogArt, it looks so good it's hard to provide constructive criticism. My only comment would be that you will need to invest extra time when it comes to the eye of the tiger. All the rest of the fur is worked out to a meticulous degree, it will be important that the eye part is having more depth and concise detail, or it will not have the right effect of depth compared to the detail of the fur. Hence, no rush, and keep at it!

    Thank you very much for kindness Franc ;)
    Unfortunately the eyes aren’t my strong point regarding the quality of details...
    I know you mean my friend.
    If the eye won’t match the rest down to flat looking or such thing,whole effort might be ruined.
    I’ll keep your advice in my mind for sure - just have started with the eye yesterday ;)
    Thanks ;)

    The time doesn’t matter Pog, for me this is looking like your best work so far! The fur is coming in really nicely and your background is so smooth looking. Very nice.

    Cheers Simon,especially for noticing the background ;)
    I usually have been messing the smoothness,by close range layering...
    This time I decided to keep away off the surface...
    It seems it's pays off, regarding your keen words ;)
    Thank you very much ;)

    James ;)
    You will do even better tiger I’m sure!
    Why would you spent any money to get something,that you can do yourself ;)
    Have a look around the forum my friend, there’s many tigers around to get support from ;)
    They’re all great, and yet - in the snow!
    Have you started yours yet?
    I haven’t seen it yet,so what you’re waiting for ;)
    I’m waiting to see your tiger WIP !
    ;)
    Regarding sellings,all my work is for sale dear James.
    This is the aim of my arts -> sales ;)
    The originals I’m sending to laser drum scanner studio,to get a very best digital CD copy, to be able to reproduce it at the same standards,the prints are matching the original art ;)
    So after the art is done,it’s ready for sale as soon as the digital CD scan is done ;)
    My aim isn’t to keep the originals,but to sell them.
    I’m sure you will paint your tiger even better,surrounded by beautiful snow ;)
    I can’t wait for that!
    You’ve honoured me with your keen words James.
    Thank you ;)

    Hiya dear artists ];)
    I’ve started mapping the eye,a little bit the nose and the ear...
    I have mixed some dark blue/dark red and bit of black to make the eye’s area even darker,the same paint I’ve sprayed all over the basic layer of the ear and some over the nose too...
    I will carry on deeping the blacks in there at the next steps...
    It’s all has a harsh look yet,maybe it’ll look better when the colours will be added on the head and top of the neck?
    At the moment it’s like baby’s painting, lol ;)
    There’s many many very good tigers painted by some of you - the challenge is great to keep up to your great level guys!
    I hope you like my efforts,though ;) ;) ;) EEB6A62F-6BA4-4DBB-8B49-A8089FA24E28.jpeg

    I was advised to paint the leopard first and to put the Tiger tail on hold so that is what im going to do but as soon as the leopard is done im on my Tiger.

    I love all of the big cats James,whatever you choose it’ll give you great opportunity to practice while painting ;)
    To me it’s doesn’t matter what will be first, everything has its own challenges...
    Your practice will always get you more educated and confident.
    All the best James ;)
