A small swim for a tiger by Lhuin A small swim for a tiger by Lhuin

...But a big adventure for a little tabby!

This is a personal painting I've been working on for a few months now, finally calling it finished! The story of the image changed a few times, originally it was just the tiger swimming alone but I wanted to add another character to it. Thought of a friendship between a young wild tiger and a little stray cat who's getting a brand new view of the islands it lives in

I've uploaded a layered PSD file of this on Gumroad! If you're interested in how I make a painting like this, layer by layer, you can check it out here: gumroad.com/l/jfBgF

It will also be up on my Patreon alongside with some WIP shots.

Prints available at: society6.com/lhuin

Thanks for looking! :heart:

You’re so talented, you’re one of the few artists whom inspire me to try realism and continue on my journey of learning fur, photoshop and realism! You’re such an amazing artist and this is incredible.

What I've always admired and loved about your works is that you always  come up with happy stories and very bright illustrations that company them (and the other way round) and they always made me smile! I can not have a bad day after seeing an update from you :heart: It just brightens it up in an instant!
Your peaceful, playful animal faces are to die for :love:
I love how atmospheric you've made this piece! The water looks amazingly realistic.. I can;t imagine how much time and concentration this must have taken. But the time & dedication spent on it definitely payed off :heart:
It's such a beautiful piece <333333333
Thank you for always making us happy with your works :huggle:

I'm sure this can be interpreted as symbolism for something, but it's so cute and detailed that I can't analyze it. Clap

There comes a time in our cat lives when we must recognize that there are places only our tiger selves can go.
