Ebon Sunset by balaa Ebon Sunset by balaa
A gift for

I noticed her character and for some reason it just inspired me so I just had to draw it. I hope you like it :) For that matter it was a good random excuse to draw a tiger..albeit in this case its not exactly a traditional tiger XD..but I hope it turned out ok just the same. I was going to do more work on it, but several folks suggested I stop where I did lest I kill it with toooo much detail.

The tiger is sorta stylized in my fashion, ie more of a toony feel to the ears which still requires some refinement. If this should get posted as a print, do not be surprised if there is some more work done to it before it goes into prints.

hours spent: 10-15
file size: 5400 x 4000 pixels(roughly)
resolution: 200 pixels/inch
Program used: photoshop
Prints: 8x10 10$ plus shipping, print is NOT watermarked

*** Full view please!! Respect the detail in the work and time put into it. THANK YOU!!***

The color palette is absolutely gorgeous. The blue highlights on the water tipped this picture over the awesomeness bridge and into the water of epic for me, even though it was already falling... :heart:

:noes: This image is simply amazing. The details are gorgeous, the lighting is superb, and the reflection/refraction in the water is beautiful. The eyes are absolutely piercing, and the fur just blows me away.

Your works never cease to amaze me. I bow down to your epic realism/feline skills. ((I'm learning slowly how to draw felines and equines myself.))<3<3<3 Perhaps if I hang around enough, your awesome skills will rub off on me, eh? xD J/k.

Keep up the beautiful work! I'm off to finish faving your whole gallery. x3

The water effects are very soothing and the surprised look in her eyes is perfect. ^^ Love the textures of the fur, as usual, and the darker background makes the contrast of her fur more striking, but not too much so. Very peaceful image.

You what I would really recommend to you? You would love the book Tomorrow's Sphinx, by Clare Bell, which is an amazing fantasy-genre novel about a cheetah whose coat isn't the normal fawn-colored with black spots: she's solid, shiny black with golden tearlines, gold-edged ears, and a gold-tipped tail. It's an amazing book. I'd love to see you paint her.

This is soooo amazing...I'e already :+fav:'d 2 of your other artworks, but I need to for this one, as well.

ironic, I was intending to do a gift picture for Kenket of her black cheetah with golden tearlines and gold tail tip, I wonder if thats what inspired that particular chara o_o;. The book sounds intruiging, I think I shall have to pick it up. Thank you so kindly for the tip, if you know a cheap place to pick it up, let me know as well! :heart:

Oh, and unfortunately, I don't think it comes cheap--it's out of print and sometimes runs at $100. But libraries sometimes will have a copy.

Zirtavia Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2006
As a matter of fact, in the book, the black cheetah is named Kichebo, and her mother is named Kenket. =D So I'd assume that that is a safe bet. In the book, Kenket is dark, but not solidly black. Compliment her on her amazing taste in books for me =)
