Burning Bright by SMcNonnahs Burning Bright by SMcNonnahs
This took me forever it seemed! Even though I started it today. Heh... anyways, I had it originally with all its stripes where they properly belong, but then I did something silly and lost all my progress. So on my second try I made the tiger jumping out of its stripes- more illustrative of the excerpt from William Blake I added - you can't truly capture a tiger with drawn lines and words. Thus it's falling apart in a surreal sense. Hope you like it.

You did an amazing job on this!  I really like how the stripes are falling off of the tiger as it leaps.
This is true art.

the concept is outstanding! I love the way it developed as you worked- the stripes sort of unravveling has a much stronger visual then just a lovely tiger on it's own...
