Glancing Tiger - Ballpoint Pen.
The tiger (Panthera tigris) is the largest living member of the cat family. At the start of the 20th century, it was estimated there were over 100,000 tigers in the wild, but the population has dwindled outside of captivity to between 1,500 and 3,500.
Took 50 hours to finish over a period of 2 months. Lost about 20% quality during scanning.
Based on photo reference from Kelly Robinson - shadow-and-flame-86
The size is 27cm x 20cm.
