Such an immense and gorgeous stare from that tiger... A wonderful capture, and in a way, it's like he's resting on someone's arm.

Keep up the wonderful work! =)

Thanks so much! :hug: Yeah, I have another one similar to this that I'm even more proud of. Needless to say, I was really lucky that day (it helped that the tigers were VERY interested in the little kids running around :D)

That's about the only use of little kids at zoos... that and getting eating shots :P

I haven't uploaded it here yet, but it's in my portfolio- [link]

And I know! If they are going to have their parents shove them in front of me so they can stand there staring the complete other way of where the animal is, at least they create funny reactions in the animals :D

Aww that's nice! I love the eyes :)
Nice portfolio too. I see a lot of new stuff there...

Yes! That's their only use though. I want to remove them more than I want them to stay ;)

Sorry for the ridiculously late reply!! Thank you! :aww: Yeah, a lot of those pictures I just haven't gotten around to uploading. I tend to try to upload the ones I think are strongest last, but that doesn't seem to be working too well :lol:

Aww, I'm hope they changed a bit for the better? :/ I'm ok, starting up school yet again for my 6th and final year of undergrad. :lol: I feel like I'm never going to get out of here, not that I mind either. xP I saw that you posted some new (to me) pictures. They're gorgeous!!! :glomp:

Aww, thank you :heart: I'm currently drawing more stuff but I get easily demotivated... I'm trying to fix that :blushes:
Good luck with this year, I hope it's the best of all :glomp: I'm excited to see your new stuff ;)

Aww, I know that feeling though! I'm glad some stuff got better. :aww:
And thanks! You still doing your masters studies? If so (or even if not) I wish you a good year as well :hug:
Hopefully I'll get all the pics uploaded at some point! I'm currently uploading stuff I took like 2-3 years ago... I have some newer pics I took this summer that I'm really proud of but I've got to get those fixed up and stuff. xP
