One word: WOW!
You really captured the tiger here! Love how you made the fur so real and how the eye is so full of life that you would expect it to blink any second!

The details of the fur and the eye make the whole drawing so realistic that it looks like a good taken phototgraph.

Thanks! Yeah, I kept coloring the eye over again because I had a hard time creating depth, the trick is varying the colors ;).

I hope that you are incredible proud of yourself for this. I'm still in shock with how awesome this is and not sure exactly if I've got the right words. I am so thrilled that you decided to do this and especially blown away with all of the detail. Thank you so much for dedicating this to me as well.

The quality of work that you've done here is outstanding. This looks truly photo-realistic. The eye looks so real and all of the fine details of the fur and stripe patterns are absolutely perfect. Even closer to the snout and in the corner of the eye you really get the sense of depth as well with that perfect shadowing there. I'm really in such awe right now over this. Great job. :D

I'm pretty shocked that I finally attempted something with fur, it was always intimidating to me. I'm even more shocked I was able to complete this in a week. It's not what I'm used to, but it feels good to try new things, and better to do well at them :D.

You're welcome for the dedication :D. :hug:

That is so good to hear. Now you should have plenty of confidence to try more fur stuff. You sure made it look as if you've been painting fur like this for years. =)
