Congratulations! It is so beautiful and well done I thought it was a picture rather than a drawing.

The colours are amazing and well chosen. The flowers are so delicate and beautiful and give such serenity to the drawing!

I think the face of the tiger is just perfect, I love it! He seems to be alive and actually swimming!

I like the reflection of the tiger into the water at the front. I probably would have tried to see if a blue-greenish colour was more suitable for the water rather than grey but that's something to so with taste.

Good job!

The artist has shown remarkable technique and taste in this refreshingly modern artwork. It is an attractive and highly aesthetic piece, radiating a sort of feminine elegance despite the apparent masculinity of the subject. It is made further appealing by the presence of the flowers and water lilies, adding a touch of the exotic.

I was rather impressed by the black stripes on the tiger's face; I found them impeccably drawn and coloured, and to add to that, they create a pleasant illusion of movement. The glint in its eye is finely lit and carries a sense of determination, ferocity and command. The whiskers even look three dimensional from certain angles, and that testifies to the complexity of techniques used. The tiger's body is almost sculpted, and the reflection in the water is subtle, enhancing the picture rather than detracting from it.

There is something to be said also of the colours: while naturalistic, they are carefully chosen and incorporated. The warm, rustic browns and beiges on the tiger's fur work brilliantly with the soft pinks and the luscious greens of the flowers. The muted grey background brings the picture together, further enhancing the tiger.

In conclusion, this is a charmingly unique and quietly intense artwork that demonstrates an "outside of the square" approach to art.

how long does it take you to do things like this? Do you use any references?
JasminaSusak Jul 24, 2012  Professional General Artist
Well, this is drawn on A2 paper format, pretty big, so it took a lot of time. I could draw it more detailed, water and leaves, but I was occupied only with tiger. :(
Yes, I've always used reference :D
iKatie22 Jul 24, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh one more question! So when you draw it out before you color do you free draw it or use a grid?
JasminaSusak Jul 25, 2012  Professional General Artist
Yes, I used the grid to get it precisely but only for main lines. After I erased grid. Recently I've been making one web page kinda how to draw, will be designed by me and I'll explain the way I draw step by step, so stay connected :D
