Never alone


This picture has 2 purposes.
I am joining to the contest with it in here NG and it's also birthday gift for my mother (slightly modified versio).

Story behind this is that I was one day going tru the music section in NG and found that TheFatRat have uploaded here his tracks. From those few tracks I found the one called "Never be alone".
Heard it first time and it immidiately gave me an idea for the picture to draw for my mother. Sentence: "Remember, you're never alone." means that all children have moved away from my mother's house now and she also lost her beloved dog and cat almost same time as last child moved away. She's been kinda lonely nowadays so I wanted to make something special for her. She loves tigers and she's been waiting that I draw something for her a long time.

I unfortunually was not able to make this picture as high quality as I wanted (also original idea was to add 3 kittens as there are 3 children). Time just is something I don't have nowadays :/

P.S the track I used to get the inspiration: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/621140

I think the concept is an adorable idea for the song's title. Though, I'm not sure if it entirely fits the vibe itself, though does in the beginning. As for the piece itself, I feel the way this was drawn has so many lines, it feels a bit crowded. Good detail, great fur detail, but I feel in some parts of the piece, it could be more vibrant in color, and less "sketchy" with the lines. I love the eyes and face the most.

Nice work, 7.5/10

Thank you.
I agree with you. I had to draw this in a hurry so there was alot compromises.
Been practicing coloring and painting alot after this picture and probably will re-paint it someday :)

Really nice, I especially like the thought behind it.

I drew a tiger a really really long time ago and I remember that being really hard. I am certain your mom will love this illustration, since it's from the heart.

good job!

ApprenticeBlacksmith responds:

Thank you :)
I don't like painting or drawing fur and because of the timelimit I went with quite simple style.
The tiger get's lower and lower quality from top to the bottom. Still quite happy with the result.
