Beau, This is real good work. The details are great. Do you also paint?
Perfection is what drives an artist.
The inability to achieve perfection is what creates a work of art.

thank you! No, I don't really paint much...never got into it as much for some reason. But I do work with pastels. I'd like to try some painting again sometime, but I don't have the supplies.

thanks...downwards? Because it's good to work at all different angles...it gives you a good eye and makes a piece more challenging to do. :D ...and I like the look that something has his interest!

It's a good angle, the tiger is a little different from most. Too many tigers that stare it you. Great piece.

Thanks Erika, I also like things to look different from other things....put in what people might not expect, and do some odd ball things. Like my purple tiger....

Great As Usual!!!! I did a tiger myself in alot of bold colors. But I like the soft colors you used in the first tiger and unlike my tiger....who IS looking straight at you....I like the downward angle too. Love it!!!
