Pretty kitty, yes you are. Come here pretty kitty!
This is the third and final draft of the tiger drawing I’ve been working on for the last couple of days. You can hardly tell what was drawn in and what was the actual original drawing. (The right side of the picture was the original). I’m quite pleased with this drawing and glad I took the most time out of anyone in the class to attempt it. The results were well worth it.
Now that the black and white portion of the project is complete I’ve begun working on a oil-pastel based version. It will be drawn from scratch without the aide of the right side. Hopefully I will be able to take the work home from school so I can properly photograph and post it here.
A few more hours of work in class today and it’s beginning to take shape. All that’s left to do is the remainder of his right paw, and the tree bark he’s perched upon. I may also decide to improve the shading around his ears but there isn’t much to do there. It shouldn’t be that complicated in comparison to the rest of the body work. Hopefully I won’t tragically ruin the whole drawing by the next and final update.
Resources: Draft One
I’ve recently just begun this drawing but I want to get it up in it’s draft stages anyway. Its nice to be able to track an art works progression over time. Currently the nose and most of the inner face is done. I’m just working on the edging and making the fur more realistic.
To be completely honest I’m quite surprised as to how the “half-drawing” is turning out. I have no idea how I got the nose area to look so realistic. It just sort of happened that was after about 20 minutes of toiling around with the structure. I must have erased it a bunch of times before settling on the currently displayed.
Anyway, I’ll keep you posted on updates to this drawing. It’ll be due in a couple of days so you should get the remainder of the project’s outcome quite soon. Keep posted!
