In Tomer's class, we were assigned to pick any topic of our choosing and illustrate four images surrounding it. Though at first going crazy with the infinite amount of possible ideas, I finally decided to go with my gut reaction and concentrate on the Man-Eating Tigers in the Kumaon district in India. On top of that, following Jim Corbett, a colonel in the British Indian Army known for killing a bunch of those big cats in the early 1900's. That's one heck of a gut reaction...

Anyway, I've pushed myself to up the ante and do these four on 18 x 24 paper- which is a pretty big feat for me since I tend to caught up in the details. Here's the first or four:linework (ink)
I opted to color it much more simply than other pieces I've done. Since the drawing is good enough on it's own, I didn't want the coloring to make it too busy.

Also, something really cool: I was playing around with color palettes and narrowed it down to two. One being the red/grey palette I chose as the final, and a blue/orange combo. I was switching back and forth between the two when, just for the hell of it, I switched back and forth faster and faster. One thing lead to another and I made the GIF below. It gives it that awesome stereograph, 3D feel to it but the line work isn't actually moving at all. Pri-tty cooooool.
Hope you guys like it. The other three will be posted in the upcoming weeks! Talk to you later...
