Your art skills are amazing. This drawing is origional and very realistic with correct proportions and talented shading. Although the eyes immediately draw attention to the creature you could make more of an impact by using brighter colours. I understand that tigers aren't as bright as one would imagine but colouring them brighter will exaggerate feauptures and attract more attention from viewers because at the moment your background and foreground are very bland colours so it doesn't stand out as much. You could even just uses a few red streaks to bring it out more without drastically changing the art piece. However all in all it is a truly amazing picture well done!

I love the way you drew and colored the eyes; green with a contour of redish brown. I think you did the fur very well, it looks like real hair and that's quiet difficult to realize with color pencils or paintbrushes. You did the stripes so beautiful and the colors you used are gorgeous :) I really love the expression on the beautiful tiger's face, he looks so real and observating something. It's also very beautiful how you colored the sky behind it, with some tones that are a bit darker than others. I think you really should do more animals because I see you are very good at this.
Congrats because this is awesome! :happybounce:

Those eyes really make the piece and breath life into it. You have a very smooth shading technique and then bam! there is a tiger who probably just ate you because you were so mesmerized by its fur and its colors put you at ease that you didn't notice.

Looking at your gallery as a whole I wonder if your colored works lack shading because you lack the ability to shade with color pencils. It completely works for this piece because your attention is supposed to go to the eyes and it creates such a profound effect, but with your colored works in general you need more contouring and shading to really make them pop out even as thumbnails.

(This counts as my Critique, for I don't have premium membership, nor do I want it.)I 100% agree with Eleanor-Anne6. The eyes do capture most of the viewers attention, and adding some red, orange, and yellow streaks into the fur would give the picture more movement (where the creator wants the viewers to look at). I suggest darkening the background to darker shades of blue. This would give the piece more contrast and movement.
