The Eye of the Tiger.

Hello to all.  I have been drawing again!  I spent the most relaxing time drawing and colouring this tiger with the new Spectrum Noir ArtLiners.  I have had the pens for a week or so and this was my first opportunity to have a play!  They really are fabulous.  The packs are fineliner and brush nib.  I love them!


The fine nibs are in various sizes and the brush nibs are fabulous for creating wonderful 'flicks'.



Below is the drawing, sketched in fineliners.  I had started to build up detail using the brush nibs and coloured his fabulous eyes!


He is now on a card.


Happy crafting fun to all!
