Stealth Tiger by NaturePunk Stealth Tiger by NaturePunk
Mikhail, a 500-something pound Amur (Siberian) tiger, stalks toward me from the back of his enclosure at the Oregon Zoo. Even with my camera in front of my face, I know he's staring right at me, and through the viewfinder, I can see the intensity in his eyes.

To this day, I believe this is one of the best big cat photographs I've taken. I blackened the background for a more dramatic affect.

On a side note, if you're wondering why this Siberian tiger is not white, you may want to check this out: [link]

Could I use that as a reference? I won't sell the art, but I will be entering a contest for a character with it.

So long as I see the finished product and am properly credited, that it okay with me.

This is very dramatic. I'd love to paint it if I may.

I only allow use of my work for reference if you do NOT intend to use the finished product for monetary gain in any fashion. You cannot sell prints, or anything made from the work. I would also like to see the finished product when it's complete.

That is agreeable. If I should do it then it will be for my use only but I will it to you. Thanks so much for your time.

Very Pretty! The black dramatic background makes his fur really stand out.
