The Thoughtful Tiger Tutorial

In this tutorial, Peggy shows you how to draw one of her favorite animals to draw: a beautiful tiger.

“Since the first time I drew a tiger, I have been fascinated by them and would draw them everyday if I could,” she says. “They are so elegant and powerful.”

She chose Strathmore Toned Mixed Media Paper in tan because the color is neutral and provided a good base color for the golden colors in the tiger’s fur.

But it’s also a great paper for layering color to achieve rich detail. The paper has a smooth feel to the touch, but has plenty tooth for layering.

In addition to Prismacolor pencils, she used Brush & Pencil Titanium White mixed with Touch-Up Texture. The tutorial includes Peggy’s instructions for mixing these two products.

The tutorial also includes a full supply list, a full-size reference photo, and a full-size line drawing.
