Tygo with his ball - The completed piece

This is only the third tiger I have ever done and he was a challenge! Tygo is at last finished. I still have concerns about the foreshortening but this is for a logo. I like to be as accurate as possible with anything I do - but no-one is ever perfect if we were we would never learn. Thanks goes to Karen who supplied the reference image and also to Zion Wildlife Gardens for their kindness and generosity in allowing me to have access to photograph their beautiful big cats at the park.

Tygo with his ball - progressions part 2


I've progressed further now with Tygo. I'm having to be very very careful around his whiskers and muzzle area. One slip of the fine pen and it will be ruined if I rush any of it. I've been thoroughly enjoying doing this piece for the Toyz for Zion Cats group. It's a great cause and I can't wait to see the big cats at Zion Wildlife Gardens enjoy their new toys they will be given by such caring and wonderful people as this group are.
