My first canvas, and definitely my first time using acrylics.
It was meant to be a fusion of predator and prey; buffalo/cattle with the tiger. Maybe you can spot the tiger's elements and the buffalo's?

I know there are lots of bits where I could improve, but I'm all open to constructive criticism :)

Very feral on the first few. On the other hand, after a closer look, it seemed to be a thinking creature to me and I wondered what thought is hidden behind its blue eyes. Wait. Does it actually have two tails?

Thank you so much for looking into the painting so deeply.
Yes, it has two tails, I regret making the both of them.
It was supposed to be a strange mixture of a buffalo, tiger and human.
I refrained from making the stripes too sharply to avoid making it too obvious.

I really like your concept here. :) If I ever saw this guy in real life, I would definitely be afraid.

Thank you so much!
Yes, I tried the, 'I'm going to get you' pose and expression.
Its on canvas and is bigger than it looks. I think I'll get better pictures of it up soon :)

Oh! This is wonderful! I must say I completely fail with acrylics while I can see you are in your element here. I don't see anything wrong with the colours, the similarities of the body and the background make an interesting effect even, like a mosaic! But I think his right front paw is a little too small for a creature this big, thats all :) Great piece!

Really? I was very stressed out over this piece. Acryllics are very hard x.x Yeah, you're right about the paw. I want to do a sketch of this again someday. Will keep the feedback in mind :)

Well, if it was your first try with the acrylics it's no wonder you were stressed out! But the result is really amazing :3 And yes, acrylics are a very hard medium >.< I've tried with them many times... and we somehow don't click... ^^; Maybe I'm just too impatient...
Good luck with any future paintings then, I'm completely sure they will be even more awesome >: D

Yeah! Plus it was for an art camp, where I might be selected (I did get selected xD yay!) And you should treat it like a PS brush tool. Try, sometime :)

And thank you! I have made some more,but they need to be clicked nicely :P
