Cue the Star Trek 2 line!
So much for taking a break huh? Seems like I just cant keep my hands off of drawing, but this was really a fun picture. The idea suddenly popped into my head and I thought it would be a good practice to get back into the soft shading and of course a more relaxed working schedule, since I didnt set a deadline for myself on this one.
What I find amazing is, that there are so few Shere Khan pictures out there. Do none of you think that power is sexy? Well I do :P (And of course the fact that hes a tiger helps too :P)
When I started out, I actually just wanted to try out if I could draw him. I decided to go the same route as with my picture of Steele from Balto, where I didnt copy the style exactly as it was, but rather tried to mix it with my own drawing style. I think the result looks pretty good. Some of his features arent as over the top as they were in the cartoon show and yet he is still recognizeable.
Where I really had some problems was the background. I knew I wanted to have Cape Suzette there with the cliffs and all, but because the designs from the show are so elaborate for some of the buildings, I felt kinda lost. So I had to rework the skyline quite a few times, but I'm satisfied with it now.
Oh and it was good to draw a clean picture again after all those porn commissions :P
