Tiger Eye

Tiger Eye

This was a fun project, I used a mixture of Illustrations pens and color pencils to create this blowup of a tiger’s eye.  For blending I used a little bit of mineral spirits and a q-tip.  Just a little, not too much.  The paper is water color/mixed media.  You can purchase it at most art stores.  I performed the drawing in layers.  I would then smooth the layer out with mineral spirits, wait for it to dry and then repeat.  Then I used some illustrator pens to create the thin hair effects and also the iris effects, the eye.  This project was a lot of fun.  I decided at the end to put the Mandarin Symbols for “Tiger Eye”.

I like to play with languages, so Traditional Mandarin is what I have been learning among German and Spanish.
