Day 9: A ~2 hr digital sketch of a jeweled tiger opening the night sky.

I really dig the imagery of this in my mind's eye, but it just wasn't cooperating when I tried to sketch it out. I think for a piece like this I would need a lot more references, as well as some perspective on the water, but you can sort of get the spirit of what I was going for here, I hope.

I've decided to challenge myself to partake in a 30-day challenge to sketch characters and environments from a story I wrote, and would like to get back to editing in order  prompt me to get back in the headspace of those characters. 

This is the Ninth day's image.

This is so beautiful!!  I so love the colors and the underlying concept.  If I had my way, I'd add more stars and more water ripples, though it is spectacular as it is. ;)

OMG the concept itself if so gorgeous, and the execution is just superb! Not only a favorite colour palette, but the entire thing gives off an atmosphere that equates the dream like existence. I love it!
