The Tiger In Me: Revamped by KirstenLane The Tiger In Me: Revamped by KirstenLane
,Edit Now the judging is over I got to work on this a lot more and with all the critiques given in mind and the sense of wanting it to be really 'me', with a lot more painting, adding of objects and the nitty-gritty details I love so much this work has been 'revamped'.

So now we also have "Cats in hats with goldfish 'bling', tiger mice and tiger parrots, sofas with paws and women with claws, the invention of 'Strapples' and flowers I adore."

Anyway I hope you like this one :D





Inspired by my own little ball of fur who likes to act like there's a big cat inside her, but actually surviving in the wild is not her style .... really she's the 'Lady of the Manor'. The over all look was Rococo/Baroque pin-up fantasy inspired with some Japanese style mixed in.

Photo manipulated with much digital painting.

My own face and body parts used as well as a reference for painting the body pose.


PS: Strawberry milk goes off really quickly - so drink up straight away if your a fan. ;)

Thank you hon :hug: the semi-finalists have already been chosen which is why I could redo this - there's been quite a bit of a stink over what the judges chose, but I'm not fussed, I just wanted to really get some more work done on this without contest restrictions :D

Why doesn't that surprise me.It is the same with the choosing of the DD's. People that really don't deserve to be chosen get preferances over others.This site sucks when it comes down to fair judging.You either have to be in the know,family or friend of the judges to get chosen.Otherwise, you don't get anything and that goes for the various groups as well. I avoid contests all together. Anyway, I regard your art as the winner.Please give me the link so that I can view the semi's.:hug:

I viewed the finals and I am most disappointed and shocked. I don't think the judges are qualified enough. lol :hug:

Art's so subjective and I thought the first piece deserved to win, the other two just didn't appeal to my sense of humour - but as i said it's a subjective thing. :hug:

Yes, I did like the first one and I was not too impressed with the second and third prized entries.But as you say it is subjective.:hug:
