Commission for EarthEmerald

Got the opportunity to paint my first ever tiger thanks to a wonderful commissions of Tamara's character, Eko, the white tiger queen. Currently a second commission of Eko is also in the making and that's an improvement already in terms of anatomy and jizz. Steep learning curve here with the felines :)

:heart::D :w00t: Lovely work! And your first time with a tiger, eh? Marvelous! Really love her eyes! :nod:
:giggle: And I find that felines are a bit hard to get down at first...especially the big cats :XD:

Thanks very much! The eyes were one of my favourite parts of this piece as well. Felines sure are hard! I often have trouble with them too haha :D

Haha, it was a late revelation on my part as well XD If you want I can send you a large version of the 'de-stretched' version as well?

Sure :) I have it as my background on my desktop right now, so de-stretched would probably look better :XD:

Sent it over! :D Oh by the way, could you please state somewhere on your dA profile page or so that your avatar is made by me? You're free to use it for things like this but I would like to have credit given still :) (if it is already noted somewhere on your page - sorry, means I've overlooked it!)
