Endangered species

I consider myself a pretty good illustrator. I am not learned enough to consider myself a real painter, but I do have good watercolor, pencil, ink and acrylic skills. I have even been known to sell the occasional portrait here and there. So when my niece asked me to draw her a tiger this afternoon, I had no reason to expect ending up with this on my hands.

The sweet girl refused to paint it, and said it is a strange tiger and possibly a pig. My mother had far worse things to comment on it, so I had to go find a photo of a tiger and draw a new one. We ended up with this, which she thought was very real looking.


Luckily, little Pooh ended up spilling water on the paper and we could all gladly move on to eating strawberries and drinking lemonade, free of the fear of being chased by strange and real looking tigers (or possibly, pigs).

Um... I think I spot (haha) some spots, so you must mean leopard (the one under the pig, that is :-P )

את חושבת שהיא היתה קונה נמר בתוך קופסא, כמו בנסיך הקטן? היה יכול לפתור כמה בעיות.

בפעם הבאה אני אבדוק את זה, למרות שבאמת קשה לעבוד עליה
