A desktop for my cousin TyGer. Full view is 1200x1600 and is about 151K.

Most of it was done in Painter, (I finally got a copy, yay!) but I outlined the clouds in Photoshop first and then used the acrylic brushes to just give it that lovely feel. I referenced the tiger from National Geographic (from a picture of a lion, no less) and most of the rest is from my imagination (it's scary in there). Oh yeah, and I googled for a sky reference.

I'm quite proud of this because I think I've spent the longest time on this out of all my digital paintings, and because it's also one where I used my imagination for some elements of it.

I hope you like it, and I hope my cousin does too ;)

It's very well done! ^_^

Painter is fun, but I find it a bit hard to use. I prefer Photoshop. ^_^

Yee, thankyou!

Painter is a really fantastic program, especially with tablet support. I think I like it because I can blend colours and pull them around, which I can't really do with Photoshop. Not Elements, which I have, at least. Without a tablet though, it's a bit awkward and I can see how you would prefer Photoshop. :)
