And just when opposable thumbs would have been most useful too. . .

Very cool Sheena of the Jungle/Beauty and the Beast sort of story telling/metaphoric image. Looks like you hit the mark smack in the middle of the bull's. . . er cat's eye. Well done.

Very pretty Manna. Well done.

03-18-2011, 12:48 PM
Manna, this is pretty hot when you get right down to it. Well done, without a doubt conjures a world of possibilities.

That cat is beautiful Amanda. And the eyes almost human... a lot of character in that cat's face.Wonderful work. :)

Cat hug! hehe Very nicely done. :)

Dear Amanda, the final outcome is a really powerful fantasy image. The cat-like fur of this oversized pet and the shading down and towards the ground as well as the rock and the trunks tactile textures are impressive. :eek::cool::):):):)
Maybe this girl has to find some way to break the unpropitious spell which changed the prince into a scary snow tiger.
I just hope that a simple kiss, as usual, may be enough and Charles Bukowsky is not whispering anything different ... :D

Beautiful indeed. My inquiring mind wants to know which one is REALLY the beast?:D

Amanda, this is magnificent...Great imagination, and a superb job of painting...:):):)
She is beautiful... Oh what it must be like to be a tiger for a day....:D:D:):):)

Thank you dearest Cesare that really means a lot:):)
As for the spell well I'll just leave that to your imagination to decide if and how the spell gets broken;):D

Amanda, very beautiful, what a style you have;);):)

Brilliant painting Amanda. I love the textures and the subject too. One can tell that both the Lady and Big Cat have an affinity together and I hope the story has a happy outcome. Well done Amanda:)

brilliant outcome! your persistence paid off huge dividends. you never gave up and it turned out amazing. you see when she was a little girl she was given this tiger cub and they grew up together. It's perfectly innocent. :)

03-19-2011, 12:01 PM
A great painting that makes me want to know more of the story. What more could you ask of a piece of art? Well done!

03-19-2011, 11:26 PM
Indeed it did dear Sketch I am so pleased you like it Thank you:):)

LOL Thank you my dear Sandy:):)

Thank you very much dear Pat:):)

I'm sure it will dear Katie thank you:):)

GZ Thank you so very much.A lovely thought to how they are so close:):)
I must admit I did come close to stopping as I had a fairly big break in the middle which is usually a sure way to end a painting for me. I loose the feel for it and it never gets finished.
knowing you and others were watching this in the w.i.p I made sure I finished this one. Thank you for the support:):)

Thank you so very much dear Al That is fantastic to know:):)

WOW...this looks like a book cover for a new series.

Jungle Jane... is this a self portrait? :eek: hehe

A book with this as the cover, should sell about 72 million copies in the first week...:D:D:D:):):):)

A book with this as the cover, should sell about 72 million copies in the first week...:D:D:D:):):):)

...not considering the ones which would be bought by the tigers (which, unfortunately for the jungle girls, are decreasing)! :D:D:D

Thank you so very much Javier:):)

LOL Thank you dear Bobby:):)
But we will have to get Barn to write it I think:D:D
No this is not a self portrait either I would be a lot happier if I looked that good:rolleyes::D:D

Hahaha very funny Barn You will have to write it and we will be onto a sure winner:D:D

Hilarious dear Cesare:D:D
