Tiger in Space? by KristynJanelle Tiger in Space? by KristynJanelle
The last Christmas drawing I will be submitting! Unfortunately this one was far too big to scan or I definitely would have scanned it.

My best friend has long had an obsession with felines to rival my obsession with birds. When I started doing commissions she kept insisting she was going to commission me to draw her a big poster of a tiger lounging. I kept rejecting the idea several times because I feel weird doing business with friends, so I decided I would just surprise her with it for Christmas :)

Now, to explain why it's surrounded by an outer-space sort of border... there was a lot of extra paper to fill, and she loves space and sci-fi, so I figured it would work. It sounds random when I try to explain it, but I think aesthetically it worked out quite well.

Very cool! I think I might try some white paint for the reflections in the eyes that I draw. You can never see them when using pastels.

I didn't! It's just the effect of the paint around the edges combined with the lighting. :)
