Burning Bright by Heylenne Burning Bright by Heylenne
Bullet; Blue Bullet; Blue Tumblr!Bullet; Blue Bullet; Blue


Testing different medias. This one was drawn with a pencil and shaded with charcoal. The background was done with charcoal+black ink and dust and anything I could find on my desk. It was kinda fun to do since I didn't think twice before painting. I just let it go by itself.
And I added some effects on photoshop too.

I have some closeups on my tumblr if you are interested: Click here for the post link. Also, if you want to rebblog, do it from this post, do not repost it by your own. Thank you. <3

Something in his anatomy seems a bit off but the textures and colors are really lovely! A nice study!

Le choix des couleurs est assez époustouflant, c'est vraiment une grande claque visuelle !
Tout ça sans parler de la disposition et du magnifique tigre... :love:
C'est très, très, très beau.

I mean, this is so unique. The orange hues and the black and white, I confess I have never seen it before you've made it. 
Quite a peculiar palette choice.

Is the poem 'Tiger tiger burning bright' what it's based on?

It's the poem "The Tyger", by William Blake.  =)

What part do you mean? I used so many different mediums that I can't exactly explain you how. The first level of orange was made with markers, then I retouched with some color pencils and then  photoshop... I didn't think too much. I was kinda bored.

You've solved the moon really nicely! I had a bit of trouble with a sun in sunset once, because it's actually just a "white circle", but that doesn't give the same effect. Cool!

The moment i saw the picture and the title I began reciting the poem in my head. The composition of the painting is nicely done. You use of mixed media is well chosen and I just love the way you did that tiger. Bravo.

We are only sparks, but together burning bright-- the Used

I think this is really gorgeous, the tiger looks strong but graceful at the same time. Beautiful capture of the essence of this animal.
