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.

First off, this is amazing! Secondly, someone named
bienfaire is posting this on PENUP (Samsung drawing/coloring app) as his/her own.

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.
