Realistic pencil drawing of a Tiger

:icongwil:
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?

I mean, really, do you have some special pencils? or what do you do not to stain the work with your own hand (specially the annular and little finger)? how do make it look like you didn't erase anything? and what is a bristol board?

I use bristol board and (square facial pads) this is the secret to a smooth drawing. (no lines) just tones.
I use a green general set and for the darkest black.
I use a 9b prismacolor turquoise pencil.
This is all.
Bristol board is just a type of cardboard paper really.
I also dont use my fingers to blend the grease on them will leave a smug that can not be erased I use the facial pads.
I also cover my work with a piece of paper leaving only open what area Im working on.

Thanks a lot!! Although I'm still trying to figure out somethings you said, I find them very nice tips!! I'll now try to figure out what a facial pad is...

What I try to understand is the pencils stuff... I pretty much didn't get anything except for the part that you cover everything except what you work on.

I will research them though, but a little help would be fine.

Facial pad a flat cotton ball like you clean your face with but with out anything on it $1.99 for 50
sent you a link so you can see I use something like part #:99001 but square
[link]

or you can use a Chamois / Shammy cloth like you dry a car off with

Okay I cover my work because I grid my drawings. I start in the left hand corner of my drawing and go from there. Gridding is where you draw more or less from squares (you draw whats in the square sent you another link. I use smaller squares then the the lady on the link does but its the same idea.

Oh! sorry for that question that might seemed obvious to you. I'm from Mexico, but I have a pretty nice English, only that daily life things like that, they never teach you those things. Well, I know what gridding is (Photoshop learning) and I quite don't like it very much, I like to draw what comes at heart, although I will try it eventually.

Did you find my link interesting? I just found it google'ing bristol boards and somewhat the fourth page it was I think. More o' less.
