...But a big adventure for a little tabby!

This is a personal painting I've been working on for a few months now, finally calling it finished! The story of the image changed a few times, originally it was just the tiger swimming alone but I wanted to add another character to it. Thought of a friendship between a young wild tiger and a little stray cat who's getting a brand new view of the islands it lives in

I've uploaded a layered PSD file of this on Gumroad! If you're interested in how I make a painting like this, layer by layer, you can check it out here: gumroad.com/l/jfBgF

It will also be up on my Patreon alongside with some WIP shots.

Prints available at: society6.com/lhuin

Thanks for looking! :heart:

So adorable - lovely water effects and lighting/shading of the water as well. Both characters are too cute together.

This painting never fails to make me smile. Every time I look at this I giggle a bit because it's just so cute. The anatomy and shading is also spot on, and the light turquoise color emphasis not only contrasts very well with the tiger's orange, but lends a light, playful air that perfectly matches the whole scene. Something about the diagonal slant also adds a feeling of playful whimsy. Very well done!

Sorry if I already asked, but was this inspired by the book "Heart of a Tiger?"

Hi there! I love your art style; I think it's very clean and organized. I was wondering if I could use this piece of art on a site named Animal Jam Clans Wiki (animal-jam-clans-1.wikia.com/w…)? I will gladly credit you and put a link to your DA page. It will not be sold and no profits will be made.
