    I’m having good time - it’s because long weekend off - sounds like short holiday, lol ;)
    So I managed to do two sessions today!
    I’m focusing on detailed work on the tiger face.
    Lots playing between the dark and light stripes, white hair cutting those edges too...
    Detailed work as hell ;) 594B43E4-2825-4B26-B10B-18B575AB701D.jpeg

    I’m actually worst than I thought ...
    Four days is not enough for me, to finish the tiger ;(
    I know I’m not a machine, and I’m not continuously painting for 8h as well, but I was imaging,that 2 of 3h per day will be efficient?
    NOT IN MY HOPELESS CASE ;)

    - The ear is to be improved (I think) ?
    - The background I’ve started today... lots to do!
    - The tiger face is being continuously improving.

    (Sorry for light reflecting image)

    Thank you for your great support guys and girls!

    I Like this picture! I have never painted a tiger myself and I find it very difficult. At some point I will try one but my love is more likely the monochrome images. There are so many possibilities!
    You are doing fantastic work!:thumbsup:

    Thanks a lot Micha ;)
    It is difficult and I find it very time consuming, just because of the fur structure...
    My background is graphite drawing - I love b&w arts, I know your feelings.
    The colour arts is something, I were willing to upgrade my work to...
    Thanks again for keen words Micha ;)
    Let’s celebrate your POM WIN !!!
    Wooow !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;) ;) ;)
    Well deserved my friend !!!

    PogArt, LOVE the tiger, HATE the background. This is of course a personal opinion, but I feel the background distracts from the brilliance of the tiger. I would have left the background as it was before.

    If it makes you feel better i have spent around 15 hours so far on the spider. Extra time scratching and colour changing. But still a bit of time.

    I love honest personal opinions Franc!!!
    Thank you for appreciating the tiger ;)
    The background must be done - it’s the challenge.
    I’m aiming to paint the animals with surrounding features, kind off full picture, not only the subject on flat plain background.
    The tiger is going somewhere, seeking its prey and moving into the direction...
    I wish the viewer is not only enjoying to watch the animal, but also imagine the situation,the moment,and live that magic moment by study the painting...
    I hope, the viewer will watch the tiger first,then the eyes might follow to the back,to check those shapes of the leaves,the way they’re catching and reflecting the light,then he might imagine the beautiful animal,that’s slowly walking through the plants...getting closer to its target...
    Atmosphere might build up in the mind ...
    This is why I’m trying to put some background features...
    The same regarding the Red Deer Stag, or the Red Fox...
    Wildlife to me isn’t just portrait,but I wish it was something more behind...
    Different story is the portrait of my dog Shiba...
    It was meant to be portrait.
    You can see my dog and the plain flat background Franc ;)

    I hope I’ve brought you my thoughts a bit closer..,
    so you might better understand my imagination of the piece then?
    Thanks Franc a lot for your true words ;) ;) ;)
    This is what I’m appreciate most ;)

    Thanks Zackod ;)
    I know it’s not as quickly done as we wish,just to let us move onto another piece ;)
    The time we spent on it, is the necessary must.
    Your spider is very tricky too,many detailed hairs, shapes and colours...
    It’s not something that can be done without great focusing ;)
    I thought four days it’s like plenty of time to finish the tiger - and you can see what’s happened ;)
    At least I’ve done some progress that I can notice by myself , Lol ;)
    Thank you Zackod ;)

    I’m very appreciated you like it Steve ;)
    I’m sorry I couldn’t get it done within four days, as I promised... ;)
    There’s simply too many details that I’m focusing on ?! ;)
    If you kindly would read the answer,that I posted for Franc, you’ll be able to know my idea of this painting a bit better...
    I’m still worry not to ruin the painting by some background mistakes,though.
    The leaves are being made free hand, to keep them blurry - anything can happen ... ;)
    Thank you ;)

    Hi PogArt, I wasn't aware that you had a whole backstory worked out! That's great of course. I was so focused on the tiger that I got thrown off by the green leaves. I guess you will put a lot of work into the background, too. Keep it up, buddy!
