Mrs. Packletide's Tiger by NicolaWallace Mrs. Packletide's Tiger by NicolaWallace
This is another image from the Saki series I am currently completing as part of a negotiated project. I like restricting myself to limited colour palettes and muted tones. Overall this has taken me much longer to complete than I hoped it would but my schedule has been incredibly full recently as I've been working on a number of images at once.

Anyway! I hope you all enjoy it!

OH! I loved that story. Saki is so wickedly funny! This is very beautiful, especially the patterns on the tiger. Poor thing, he looks very tired.

Thankyou! It's one of my favourite stories too, along with Sredni Vashtar! His stories are so wonderful I can't quite believe they're edwardian, I guess they're just timeless in a way. I'm glad you can tell he looks tired! I spent so long trying to draw a tiger that looked old and warn out. :)

I enjoy it so much! So amazing, so detailed! I love the markings on its fur, especially the one made of semicircles - it's Japanese, I believe. The colour palette is beautiful as always, I really like your economy in this aspect. Wonderful!

Thankyou so much. :D
The semi-circle pattern is one of my favourites, I always end up drawing that one! The japanese were very good at patterns so it wouldn't surprise me if that's where I got it from. A colour palette can make or break an image so I'm really pleased you think it works! Thanks again!
