    it has been years since I painted a tiger but when I saw a ref photo a new member posted I knew I would have a go at that ref :)
    I started with etac efx sepia to map out the basic stripe shapes and I used a home made gray to map out the shading in the snow

    @beginner-James the size is 40x60 cm the substrate is schoellershammer 4G paper
    @Jimmyfingerz I am using only the colors Etac provides , sepia will look near black when it reaches max saturation and it wont give me any colorshift when I start with "orange"

    I saw that reference once ago, and I didn’t dare to even think about it, lol ;)
    The snow thing scares me off still ;)
    Good start and the progress Ronald.
    I’m curious to follow next updates, as the art must look awesome when finished ;)

    a dead line to finish the bathroom means little time for painting but the hot weather gave me the perfect excuse not to work on the bathroom so I could work on the tiger a bit more

    It sounds like quite a long time you haven’t been airbrushing Ronald...
    Hopefully we will see you back on track ;)
    All the best - I’m waiting to see your tiger done ;)

    with a deadline on my bathroom set by the fact I got friends coming over and stay for a few days I now have about 4 weeks to get that bathroom up and running so I still have very little time to paint but I managed to get some work done to this tiger
