This is the holy tiger of evanescence.

I spend countless hours to draw this picture... I hope you like it :D

I wanted the tiger, especially his head, to pop out and be the focus of this picture. The strawberries are growing out of the tendrils, that are coming from the touch of the tigers paw and the ground. The tiger is the holy God of Evanescence, which means, where he goes there is life for a short time, in this case the strawberries on the ground of the forest, before they wilt and are gone. Evanescence for me means leaving life, which happens with time, so the clock around the tigers neck also has a meaning.
... sorry for my crappy English ^^'

I have to say than its an awesome work, all the tima than you spend making this master piece, well... well done!!. the tiger, the body, the head are very beautifull, the horns behind the tiger's head are amaizing, and the clock on his neck, wonderull.
the plants than are growing from de paws of the tiger, it remainds me the game OKAMI, when you walk or run with Amaterasu and he maid grow flowers and some plants.
the colors than you use on this picture are interesting, the blue on the tiger and the horns, that blue give hem a magic aura from my point of course.

to finish this critique I only have to say:

Well my first critique :p
first this is an original piece! I really love it. The tiger is the center of all and the brown gold furr color is contrasting with the beautiful bleu. I love the fading in the background. It creates space ^^
The light on the sides of the drawing are beautiful, it give's the whole piece something more. It's great how you created light in the piece. I love the detail, like the strawberries. The symbols like the watch and the strawberies that comes when he steps on the ground. I love it! It has so much that a piece needs. It has a center, space, symbolic and beautiful detail!

I love it! ^^

PS: sorry for the bad english

This is....I can't even...It's beautifully gorgeous.  The atmosphere really brings out the mystical mystery of the tiger.  Gorgeous work, really.
