I like it! :D Even though the colors aren't a match as you've said, you did do a better coloring job on this one. Instead of going with reds and yellows, next time try golden browns. I like how you did the texture on his face and I know the texture of his fur didn't show up so well on the reference, but maybe next time you can attempt to show some of the fur. Fur is a bit tricky but all you need remember is to pay attention to the way it grows on all the different parts of his body. :thumbsup: Good job! :D :clap:

I'm still working on this color matching stuff. I always seem to be off in lot of my color works even in my digital art I'm off lol. I'll work on the fur next time just not sure how to go about it. Need to take time and just work on texture some time. Thanks for the tips!!! Really do enjoy your critiques. :)

My pleasure! I'm glad I could be of some help. If you have a pet, say a cat or dog, just take a close look at the way the fur grows. It's pretty much the same for all animals. Small strokes of the pencil work best. You can use more than one color at a time for the fur. Different shades of say, brown or gold or even oranges for your tiger. There will probably even be some pale yellows. I find that if I use colored paper that sort of matches the colors in your subject, it really helps, especially if you're subject has some white in it's fur. It'll show up better and help with some of the shadows in the fur too. If you take a look in my gallery you'll see what I mean. I try to match my paper to my subject's coloring. Keep on drawing! :D Looking forward to your next piece. :hug:
