Ghost Tiger by hibbary Ghost Tiger by hibbary
A spirit tiger, forming out of the ether.



Painted all in oil on a weird, hand-dyed sheet of paper I've been hoarding for ages. I use a loooooooot of thinner, and so it comes out looking like watercolor in some places. But no, it's oil :3


I'm still playing around with tension between fully rendered vs. flat in the treatment of the figure. And color, as always. I'm slowly getting better, I think.

And I may fool with it yet :F I think I see some spots I want to dicker around with already.

Awesome! I like how you made the tail like a sort of half negative image! And the tiger's right foot, sort of blending into the background becoming transparent!

Its very nice. I guess I was mistaken. I hate it when I miss guess media, especially when I use water color myself. Oh well.

This one was actually oil, but I can see why you guessed watercolor. I used a lot of thinner. So it was sort of like... turpenoid-natural-color.

This is really great! Would it be okay if I drew this? It'd be in pencil with no colors and slightly changed, but I'd make sure to give credit to you for the original. if you don't want me to that is fine though.

Wow! Full of ferocious energy that hits you full on! Love the flowing, smoky effect of the ether around the upper half (almost looks a little like lightning!) but not so keen on the faded graininess of the bottom half personally. Amazing pose and the blank eyes make the tiger seem all the more otherworldy.
