Toying Tursiae by Ashalind Toying Tursiae by Ashalind
EDIT: Wow! I just logged on and noticed a few extra favs for this piece and I thought to myself...DD? Yay! Thanks Katmomma and to everyone who favs/comments. :)

Commission for :icontursiae: of his tiger character having a little fun with an unsuspecting Eastern Rosella.
This was heaps of fun to paint. I spent a lot of time on the background which I feel I sometimes neglect. I'm pretty pleased with this one.

A4 Watercolour and pencil

Full of action and adrenaline, Toying Tursiae by =Ashalind really pulls you in. The Eastern Rosella is unsuspecting of it's future, while the Tiger seems to be enjoying stalking the poor little bird. I'm almost afraid to see the outcome! ( Featured by Katmomma )

Very good! I like the colors and the playfulness. The right eye of the tiger is kind of hard to follow though, it doesn't look like it's focused on the bird at first.

IMO, the head is too feral-style for the more anthro body. I find the clash of styles distracting from enjoying the rest of the painting.

Great piece!!! I just wonder one thing :? Why does the tiger not have claws on the paw/hand that's raised to strike?
Reply
:iconashalind:
Ashalind Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Because he's not actually striking the bird. My commissioner only wanted him to be playing with it, so I felt claws out would be too aggressive. He's only got his claws out on the other paw for stability. :)
