Beyond the tiger’s stripes

Can we see through the tiger’s stripes? In order to draw it efficiently, it is a good idea to try. In the first stages of this quick pencil portrait of a female child of famous Bandhavgarh tigress “Spotty”, I purposefully ignored the stripes so I could render the general structure of the head. Once the three-dimensional shape is defined, adding the unmistakable facial markings is much easier.

  1. I loved how the tiger face looked kind of unique without stripes. Congratulations for the excelent draw!
