Hey guys, I found a cool YouTube video that you might enjoy. It's a great speed painting or tutorial on "how to draw a realistic tiger step by step". I think the artist is totally incredible at shading and drawing. The user is skylineaddict. You should check out he/she's profile for other drawings. Learning how to draw a realistic tiger can be a bit difficult because of all it's stripes. I have problems when I come across this part of the animal. Watch how the artist makes the moves with the pencil. I'm pretty sure he or she is using HB shading pencils. I actually own a set of the HB pencils myself. Charcoal is also needed to shade dark parts without seeing the white of the paper. Have fun and enjoy peeps.
