Imposing Tiger by MassimilianoW Imposing Tiger by MassimilianoW
A draw of a tiger made for artclass with the theme called "Wild". We had to point out the the expression of the animal we chose. I tried to express danger, threat and imposing attitude.

Materials:
- HB, 2B, 4B, 6B, 8B pencils (Koh-I-Noor)
- Charcoal
- Regular eraser
- Tortillons
- Paper (120 gram)

Size: 30 x 40cm. (+/- 12 x 16 inch)
Total elapsed time: +/- 12 hours.
Date of finishing: 23rd of January 2011


WARNING: Because of the high contrast and the pencils combined with charcoal the camera wasn't able to shoot good quality pictures. There was a lot of unnatural reflection which I had to remove. The picture is adjusted a lot but therefore to make it more look like the original. Thanks for your understanding. ;)

Please leave a comment! ;)

It's a pretty nice drawing, but the tail is too light for where it is. You don't want it to look like it's coming out of the tiger's neck. I'd just go and darken it so it's clearly behind the tiger.

Thank you! :D I hope I can see one for real some time, except behind glass in a zoo...
Maybe I'm gonna adjust the area around the mouth a little when I have it back because I don't like it so much. For the rest I'm so proud. :D

When I saw the miniature, I thought you'd taken a picture of a tiger. "Impressive photography", I thought.

BUT DUDE, THIS was DRAWN!?!?

In-sane.

Such great detail in the face! I love it, it's very expressive, to me it looks like the paws are rooted to the Earth, sharing a connection of some sort?

It could be. :) Whatever you see in it. My intention is described in my description but it's very interesting how others have different views in a 'meaning of the draw' or 'hidden message'.
