Realistic pencil drawing of a Tiger

What is there to say about a picture so skilfully executed? Of course we must question the originality - surely the artist is limited in how many tigers are seen day to day and remain still for our leisurely art creation and consumption. Even if from a photo source we can still admire the detail given with subtle and considered artistry - the firm nose, sage whiskers and plush fur all seem close enough to touch. The brilliant contrast between dark and light helps to elevate those textures.

Perhaps we can ask questions of the composition as it leans somewhat heavily to the right but this does not compromise the picture - being face to face with the tiger keeps our eye drawn to the enigmatic eyes and we do not worry for it only being a head.

Surely a fine piece of art, demonstrating a skill and dedication to the craft the artist can reward themself for.
What do you think?
