Finally, I did it. I was afraid of putting this off, but I managed to make this. You don't know the trouble, though. Originally, I made the final draft the day before making this, but I made a new one--this--because of an error that bothered me. It's not that their muzzles may be too long.
I put much thought into this. I went through five practice designs before I chose to make it final. At first, I wanted one to wear a skirt. The other, a tunic and holding a cane. However, I thought that would be too hard. I also felt that there was a cliché and I tried to avoid it. I needed a little help. So, I studied the following photo and used it as a reference: [link]
I used another picture I found on Google images, but I didn't save the link.
Now, the purpose of this wasn't just to see how I'd draw anthropomorphized tigers. I meant for this to be symbolic.
The tiger on the left, was meant to be a female. By embracing herself and feeling only her own body, I wanted it to be as if she was feeling beautiful. Therefore, she represents the beauty of tigers. As for the tiger on the right, you no doubt know that it's male. The cliché that I tried to avoid was the stereotypical muscle lining. However, his build is noticeable, and that's good enough. The male tiger represents the strength of the animal.
Hence, the title. For tigers are one of the most beautiful and powerful species. And it saddens me that, within a few years, tigers will only exist as pages of history and parts of past fiction.
Anyway, I did it the same way I always do it. Drawn with pencil. Black-lined actually with two different pens. Coloured with pencil crayons and one marker this time. Drawn on the day of 13 July, 2013.
