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.
