In the Embrace of Dawn by balaa In the Embrace of Dawn by balaa
A private commission thats been a bit overdue! This year has been so full of ups and downs, I've just not been an overall reliable commissioner to deal with. HOPEFULLY that will change or I'm afraid I will have to stop taking commissions. For all those that have been waiting on me in one fashion or another, I'm sorry folks, I am trying to sort out things and get back into my normal groove.

A pair of lovers bask in the secluded warmth of an early morning sun. This piece took quite some time, and was, more than anything, a learning process. Mostly I learned 1. refine your sketch before you jump into painting it, or pay the consequences later. Go me for being a slow learner. 2. More is less, ugh I always end up learning the easier ways to do things after I end up making a ton of mistakes. Eh oh well. I had fun painting these 2 guys, and yes one of them is a grey tiger with red eyes, not a shadow saturated white tiger XD!

As always, there are things I wish I had done differently, things that drive me NUTS in the final piece and etc. But one must learn when to stop working on a piece for fear of losing their sanity or ruining the piece with frustration.

Technical Details:

Time taken: ?
Size: 20x30 inches at 300 dpi
Prints: yes, jumbo prints available in limited numbers, 8x10 prints 10$ US plus 3$ shipping & handling within the continental US (pm me if interested)
Watermark: eh unfortunately yes, printed version will be watermark free.

Critique discouraged for this piece since I a don't intend to go back and work on it again. Helpful critique to keep in mind for future pieces is ALWAYS welcome :).

What a beautiful piece! I like how the red of the gray tiger stands out against it's dark fur! Nice work! Clap
