Fantasy Tiger - for sale by rieke-b Fantasy Tiger - for sale by rieke-b
Acrylic paints on cardboard, 13,5x9(x4)cm. I looked at several photos, mainly showing Siberian Tigers, and created a “fantasy tiger” from them - who isn't very well camouflaged, apparently. :D

The incredible beauty and strength of tigers makes me happy and sad at the same time. Without a weapon, no human would stand any chance against this predator, but they still seem so vulnerable themselves nowadays.
Can the biggest and most well-known cat still be saved, even though people can’t even get along with each other? :(

Acryl auf Pappe, 13,5x9(x4)cm. Ich wollte schon länger einen Tiger malen. Ich habe mir verschiedene Fotos angeschaut, die hauptsächlich Sibirische Tiger zeigten, und habe daraus einen „Fantasietiger“ gemacht - der offensichtlich nicht besonders gut getarnt ist. :D

Die unglaubliche Schönheit und Kraft von Tigern macht mich glücklich und traurig zugleich. Ohne eine Waffe hätte kein Mensch gegen dieses Raubtier eine Chance, aber dennoch wirken sie selbst heutzutage so verletzlich.
Kann die größte und bekannteste Katze noch gerettet werden, obwohl die Menschen nicht mal miteinander zurecht kommen? :(

Gorgeous! And I completely agree, by the way; it's unbearably sad to think that one day these beautiful creatures may not exist, and it's all because of us humans. :cry: Love your picture, you're obviously very talented! :D

Thank you for your words. :)
Yes, many big, well-known animals might go extinct in the near future. It's such a shame... :(

Oh, thank you for pointing this out! It sounds interesting, but the only announcement I found said "Submissions close on 19 December 2012". Oops... ^^;
