Created by Shawn McLaughlin in October, 1999
The original image was a 3" X 6" picture of a real tiger. Shawn , 14 years old at the time, free-handed the picture onto a 18" X 24" poster board. No tracing or grids were used. This was Shawn's first large art project. Needless to say, the art teacher gave him a 100% and asked him why he was in the beginner art class. The following semester, he was transferred to the advanced art class. The scanned image does not do the original copy (done in pencil) any justice, but it gives an idea of what it looks like.
I hope I am not bragging on my son too much, but he just suprised me with a God-given gift that I did not even realize he had. He is currently working on more & they will be shared with you as soon as they are completed.
