Siberian Tiger
Stage 2

First of all I want you to know that I take all these pictures with my camera phone. I work on these drawings mostly while I'm at my shows so my phone is the first thing I grab when I take a picture. I'm explaining the dark background. My flash just doesn't cut it when it comes to photographing the white background. The close-up in Stage 3 is a much better photo and shows the detail better. This is a Siberian Tiger. He lives in the snow most of the year. Siberia has a very short summer, about 2 months long, other than that this guy is COLD! The foreground and background are going to be snow with some rocks and some type of foliage. I haven't quite figured out exactly how the back and foreground is going to look but I'm working on it!
