Space Tiger by blayrd Space Tiger by blayrd
...sign #6234648 of the end of the world. Don't send tigers into outer space, kids.

Another of those things I intended to be a simple cartoony drawing (with lineart) but accidentally turned into a painting. Um. Nebulae are difficult to draw without them looking like clouds! Didn't quite get the intended effect, but I'll definitely try again someday. Wait, who am I kidding, "intended effect", I pretty much had nothing in mind when I was starting this! Ha.

Yay art?

Edit: Somehow I'd deleted the whisker layer in the final. He is now in fully-whiskered glory!!

It was crazy difficult to try and make nebulae look... nebulous and not cloudy and overcast in outer space D: Thanks aplenty!

Oh my, this made me laugh SO hard because it reminds me of a lets play of silent hill: shattered memories (here's the link, you'll know what I mean: [link])

that aside, great painting! I really like it :D

Ahahaha oh wow thanks for the link! You can imagine how amusing it was for me to see that after painting this as well xD It might be a reference twice removed, since I got the idea from a friend mentioning space tigers.

Thanks, glad ya do!
