Albino Liger Tribal Tattoo by Skrayle Albino Liger Tribal Tattoo by Skrayle
This is a commission I got from :iconhalfhuman2: for a white male liger (black stripes on a white body) This was quite a challenge, as I don't usually draw big cats, and the way I do my tribals makes for odd kinds of stripes (in other words, it doesn't quite work). I found a cool way to make the stripes tho...just put them inside the tribal shapes instead of making the shapes themselves stripes (hope that made sense :P) I liked the way it turned out, except the nose kinda got lost and the mouth looks a bit funny XD I also colored the eye and the inside ear to make them stand out more. Doing a black and white tribal is hard, because the shapes left white don't look as good and don't stand out as much as the black ones do. Thankfully, the stripes helped with that problem on this one. I also found out that thin black sharpie is PERFECT for coloring in tattoos when I don't have Photoshop. Yay! ^^

Love the fire at the tail! and the soft color eyes... so expressive... :3
nitpicking with such a great drawing, but why does it have a mane if it's a tiger?

It's actually a liger (lion and tiger cross), s it has a bit of lion in it. I wasn't sure whether male ligers had manes, so I googled it and apparently they do :P

Sorry to be nitpicky but... it's not a true albino if it has stripes. True albinos are pure white and don't have any marks. I think...

Who cares! It's freaking awesome!
