Artist's description:

I worked with a variety of Caran Dache colored pencils drawn onto a smooth surfaced paper. To balance the color tones in the eyes I made the shading soft almost pastel like. Usually I outline the eyes first which helps me to proceed with the visual color detail as it develops. I used selected orange colored pencils incorporating a brown to capture a smooth finish on the fur. On the fur I lightly color orange using this as a starting point. As the drawing builds up I use various orange colors to create that orange fur effect. Once the orange comes out from the tiger I soften the color slightly so its not too bright in color.
The expression on the tigers face drew my attention very much and I loved the way I formed the orange texture on the fur together with the stripes. The artwork turned out to be outstanding!
