The Sleeping Tiger by willustration The Sleeping Tiger by willustration
tiger woods :)
( a tiger shaping woods )

just for fun.....how many tigers are in this scene? can u locate them?

15x42cm
pencils, 2B, 5B, 8B

first of all, i'd like to thank everybody who love, adore and support this artwork. i'm very happy that 'the sleeping tiger' has been viewed and faved so many times, and been given so many constructive comments. i really appreciate it, thank you very much. quite frankly i'm very proud of this because this is one of my masterpiece, which i spent a lot of thinking and hardwork in creating it.

but unfortunately, i found that my artwork has been stolen, and been used without my permittion several times, even printed on some products for commercial purpose. it really breaks my heart. but i try to look at the bright site, means that my artwork is really supercool that make people wanna steal it.
so, i'm adding watermark on this artwork from now on. i'm sorry for this inconvenience, but i believe you will understand my reason to do it. thank you very much.

however, art theft sucks! to all the art theft out there, you should be ashamed of yourself. you can steal our creations, but you can't steal away our creativity.

Can you find all the tigers? The Sleeping Tiger by ~willustration ( Suggested by heather-hellion and Featured by Mollinda )

Hey! I just wanted you to say that I LOVE your work! I found this on pintrest a year ago while I was studying Gestalt's Figure-Ground images and it inspires me so much to try and come up with my own work!

If you ever have any time, I'd love to talk about your process for coming up with this piece and how you were able to come up with it's design!

Keep up the amazing work!

P.S I've only ever found 3 tigers

This is really great. The best illusion I˙ve seen.
I was thinking for some time about making a tattoo and I didnt know which one to make, so I was searching on Pinterest and other sites and accidentally saw this. And when I saw it,I said this is the tattoo I need and want. I see that there are thefts of this and I didnt want to also be the one of those who stole it without asking so my point here is if you could allow me to use your artwork as my tattoo I˙d  be very grateful.

Is there any way to get a 24 x 36 print or photo of this image? We would like to use it in our next series. It is perfect for it.

I just have a flashback because i tried to do the same (a tree shaped like a tiger) years ago, in an art class i took to get extra credits in my college, unfortunately the teacher was so mean, saying i was a total failure because i wasnt a real artist like the other students (i am a biologyst) so i got really pissed and sad and never finished the drawing. Now that i see this, is so beautiful and perfect..maybe i shuld try to do my own version, again.

your work is awesome.

I have just seen a 15 year old lad on instagram post a copy/tracing of this pic and claim he has done it.   i linked back to this pic and was deleted and blocked..
he has been doing this to other artists for a while.  inventart1
