Today at DragoArt.Com we will learn on how to draw the beautiful and exquisite fairy tiger. What is a fairy tiger, why does it have feathered wings instead of fairy wings? To answer your question, a fairy tiger is a beautiful creature that lives amongst the jungle’s waterfalls. They can be seen during the full moon at the waterfalls to drink and bathe. Are there any other places that are known where the fairy tiger can be spotted? To answer that question, is no, there are no known places towards where the fairy tiger can be spotted. The only known place is the jungle’s waterfalls. Some tribe members that live in the jungle have captured some of the tigers. They use them for transportation around their area. They also breed them with other big cat species. For instance, white tigers, jaguars, cougars, lions, and others. What do fairy tigers eat? Fairy tigers feast upon fruits and mammals. They do not eat humans for it is against their nature. What alliance is the fairy tiger? When it comes to the fairy group there are two alliances. There are the unseelie fairies and the seelie fairies. Fairy tigers come in both alliances. What’s the difference between an unseelie and a seelie? This is pretty simple, a seelie is a good light fairy and an unseelie is a dark bad fairy. A seelie fairy tiger is usually colored in bright colors like the one we are drawing today. They also venture around seas, tropical islands, and most of all jungles. An unseelie fairy tiger is colored in dark colors and are totally opposite to the seelie tigers. They are usually spotted roaming around marshes, swamps, deserts, lakes, and of course the dark side of the jungles. How can an unseelie fairy tiger be changed into a seelie? Well if you actually caught an unseelie tiger then you would have to tame it to do good deeds. And if you had a seelie tiger you would have to tame it evil deeds. It’s pretty basic. It’s like taming a dog or cat. But not all creatures can be tamed since everything they do is in their nature. So I hope this tutorial will help you into drawing a better fairy tiger. I first drew it out freehandedly on my Wacom intuos3 tablet then I colored it in Photoshop CS. It took me a total of four hours to draw and color this beautiful mystical creature. So enjoy!
