Meet the tiger "Strayer" who searchs for Seven Wonders of nature!
um... this is special personal artwork (rather an experiment) which I got wildly inspired and to do something different... and improve my fucking watercolor skills
Begin inactive in Jan, i wasnt at home but i've seen how khaosdog was greatly improving with her watercolors, her art was amazing... so I thought i shouldnt have giving up with my horrible watercolor skills. I think I havent been drawing for long time because of my lack inspiration and my style-hating lol. But thanks to khaosdogs art and my friends from Fan Club of Art uni to "push" me back onto drawing.
An advice or good critique about my crappy watercolors is welcomed :3
Most interesting on this picture is not tiger, but that tree's branch which is turning into holy stone - because I used special materials for experiment. It has 4 layers- under is dyed watercolor, on this is real crushed pearlshell, shining pigments with salt and top is covered with cracked crystal.See details of effects!
real pearl shell: [link]
stone crystals: [link][link]
And it ended as a successful experiment. Now this branch is 3D and looks like real stone.
This picture is registered and numbered (symbol and number is available on back) in Fan Club of Art. What it does mean?
I will explain later, in journal maybe.
This original picture goes as a gift for ~DarkTiger-ex
