Hey there tiger!
Before getting into card design I used to concentrate on fantasy art. You know, faries, creatures, and a world you could only imagine.
One of my favorite ways of starting a painting was to take two animals and combine them into a new form never seen before. The options are endless and incredibly fun. I have always loved the beauty of the human form, so many of my "creature creations" started there. I've done half man - half goat, half man - half iguanna, and one of my card designs, half man and half tiger. Picking the best qualities from the animal like the beautiful shaggy fur around a tiger's face, the cat eyes, and the dramatic stripes, I give you... "Hey there tiger!"
