The Tyger

I started this in approximately 2003, and I only finished it the day before yesterday. With a long gap of inactivity in the middle.

It's not like something I would do now, but I quite like it. It feels like something someone else did. The colours are quite childish and the tiger is very static.

But he's alright.

That Tyger's got some very human eyes. Great. And about the colours, why childish? I certainly love 'em. Or does that make me childish? Questions, questions. Anyhow, very nice work!

I think his eyes are my eyes from a photograph when I was three or so- as I remember it.

I felt like the green and the orange were a bit childish, but they're forgivable, anyway now it has the gloomy old knight to take the edge off the acid.

And the tiger was based on an Everquest tiger, from back in my Everquest phase in the days before WoW. But I specifcally liked his staticness and stiffness and intense glowing orangeness.

So maybe it is like something I would do now. And it is something I did now, cos I only just finished it. I laugh in the face of temporal phases!
