T is for Ty-ger

There is something about adolescent animals that haven't yet grown into their adult sized paws that sends a little squiggle of joy up and down my spine...hehe! Last winter I was fortunate enough to visit the largest Siberian tiger reserve in the world located in Harbin, China, and thats where I took the photo reference for this sketch. Did you know that all tigers have a similar marking on their forehead which resembles the Chinese symbol Wang, meaning "King"? Guess we know who the real king of the jungle is now...RAWWRRRR!!! ;o)
