Kostia Tiger by ebonytigress Kostia Tiger by ebonytigress
Finally completed this, It has taken a long, long, long time. Commission for NoirTheater of his Russian tiger soldier, he left everything up to me, so I got to nitpick this to my own heart's content.

Most of that time spent was due to me not being able to decide on how to do the background, I had completed it at one point and then decided all of the trees I drew were wrong and too much like "Oklahoma" trees. Which was true, so I redid them all. Oh, and I'm never quite happy enough with anything, and I've just decided to quit nitpicking and move on to other things.

I plan to make prints available of this at MFM.

Colored in Paintshop Pro 9

My hat's off to you girl -- that is one cool camou-ed out cat. ^^ I can see you put quite a bit of time and effort into detailing his outfit and gun. As for the background... again hat's off to ya-- I like the nice muted earthy tones and the perspective is really good; looks like that forest goes on forever. :) I don't have the patience to draw all those trees!

Me + BG's = a very stressed out kitteh O.O lol

Awesome, really looks great! But...! *Has to be an ass.* You got the underfolding mechanism there...but where's the selector lever? Unless the right sides (which is viewed in this picture) was modeled on the left side of the subject rifle...

:iconebonytigress:
ebonytigress Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2008
I'm sorry, I really don't know much about the weapon itself or what a selector lever is, so I had to work from the references I could find, so I know that this image has its inaccuracies, I did the best I could though, but I will try to be more knowledgeable in the future.

I did model this from the left side of the rifle, it really didn't occur to me that the other side would be a whole lot different.

DesertYote Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2008
No, no! XD I wasn't trying to be critical. I realize most folks are not nearly as familiar with the weapons as I am. That's why I said I was being an ass. ^.^ You did an excellent job on the picture - it is top quality, without a doubt. Hell, if you want to you could use any of my pictures as references. I'd even be glad to take more detailed pictures of specific parts if you'd like.

something about this threw me off, until i figured out he was left handed. ;p nice work. the gear looks great. esp the AK and the boots.
careful he don't step on his own tail when he stand up. ;p

:iconebonytigress:
ebonytigress Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2008
Yeah :) Thank you! Haha, I'm sure he probably would be very careful, I doubt his tail would feel so stellar with all his weight coming down on it in those boots.
