Lucky Girl by WendyLynn Lucky Girl by WendyLynn
So this is my rendition of a beautiful picture that :iconwildbydesign: took:



I have to say I feel bad for this picture because right after I started it I went to see Avatar, and I couldn't wait to finish it so I could go do some Avatar fanart.

But I still wanted to take my time and try and push myself further because that's how you get better, right?

My boyfriend looked at this and said "Well you're definitley better than you used to be." And that made me feel really good, even if he was just saying it.

So, about the title. It's unfortunate. I was looking up white tiger facts for some inspiration for the title. I've always knew that tigers were inbred and genetically altered and the whole bit, but I didn't know about deformed white tigers. Google it - it's so very sad. But these things happen when you inbreed. Which is so unfortunate because they're such beautiful cats. So Spirit, the tiger this picture was based off, if one lucky girl to come out as beautiful as she is. We really need to stop inbreeding tigers, because it's just not fair to product something that has such a great chance of being deformed and living a horrible life.

Anyway, enough rambling.

Materials: Prismacolor pencils, Sepia Ink, and Acrylic
Time: A Saturday and Sunday afternoon

Enjoy!

How did you scan this in? And how do you get the whiskers to look like that?

Not sure - just put it on the scanner and played with the settings until I liked it.  And the whiskers are just white ink.  You can use white gel pens too.

Haha yeah not without the photo! And I have so many more of yours lined up that I want to do! I do have to say thank you because I'm getting SO MANY faves on this, and I think it's due to your journal. So thanks Dave, for everything. :love:

You're welcome. I'm sure the journal will help and I certainly hope it does. I would show this off to the whole world if I could, you truly did an amazing job with it. And that border and stuff you added complimented it so well. =)

Do you have any snowies planned? ;)

Thanks, I'm an Art Nouveau FANATIC so I can't resist throwing a little something in each picture I draw. And ACTUALLY there's a section in my fur coloring book that shows you how to do snow leopard fur, so I can definitley scoot that one to the front of the line. Do you have a favorite pic?

WendyLynn Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah, it's a small section but it looks like I can do it. And you never know till you try! Let me know if you have a hard time picking a fav and I'll help. ;)
