Panthera tigris sumatrae (the making)

The final strokes of the dark stripes were applied at the end. The surrounding area was painted green to create a feel of the wild. This completes my version of the Sumatran Tiger. 




















The faint tones were then added and then the dark tones of the water were applied 





















First I made a basic sketch and started with the eyes.

Sumatran tiger is smaller than the Indian tiger. The tiger is known for its stripes, and the Sumatran tiger has stripes that are a little closer to each other than some other subspecies of tiger.
