    Hi everyone. Sorry I've gone for so long. Work has been taking all of my time, but I've changed my position there and life is much less stressful. I've finally finished this tiger, which I started two years ago! Eeeeeeck can't believe its been that long. Anyway, I am pleased with this one.

    So this is painted on cradled birch with acrylics (golden and wicked paints). Many many layers of airbrushing and fine brush work.

    Thanks everyone! I've missed you all too. And, sorry you were so worried about me. I've stepped down from my position at work and the stress levels are almost non-existent now. I needed to do this for myself and my family and I will have more time to do what I love now. So I think you guys are stuck with me! :D:D:D

    We would rather be stuck with you than stuck without you:)

    I'm glad you've got rid of the stress, I've had a lot of it myself lately so I know how crap it is, I hope we will see a lot more work form you now, but sticking around and just tormenting us is also acceptable:):):)

    Good result! It reminds me the style that I've seen in old ABA magazines in back years.

    It's always great to come to the things you love to do, congrats!

    Your situation is like mine:) Time flies away like a bullet.

    I’m craving to get stuck with artist like you!
    I didn’t know you’ve had such difficult time in your life. Your story reminds me mine a bit?
    I put myself in bad loans situation,and to cover the bills I were forced to work for 6 days p/w.
    This condition simply was taking away my free time,and I were loosing motivation...
    I managed to help myself two months ago, I’m back on 5 days p/w since then - the life became much more friendly then, so I can focuse more on the things I love to do ;)
    Your tiger shows lots of patience and detailed/nailed work - it’s impressive tiger and I’m jealous ;) lol ;)
    Congratulation!!!

    Thank you for your kind compliments. I changed up my position at the firm I work for. The problem is that it grew so big and so quickly, the work I was doing grew with it. I was doing the work of three people and I was only one, working long hours and trying to do it all. I am a much happier person now.

    I can only imagine how difficult it was, to do alone job for few!
    On the other hand, it’s good for the company to grow that quickly up ;)
    Best regards.

    Thanks Lee. Yes the fur took a long time. I just kept painting layers until I was happy with it.
