I don't know nearly as much as Noémi does Embarassed

But I LOVE stripes like this :


It is just an ordinary Bengal Tiger, and a bit too fat, I suppose, but it is SO beautyful drunken
I love the  orange  "islands" in the stripes, and the warm, wonderful colours Very Happy

I didn't knew that stripes of tigers are different Shocked
I checked those ones about who Noémi said, and I liked Sumatran tiger very much I love you He is close to Bengalian one, but look at him sunny

:) Thank you
Allright, back to the painting and next step :)

17. Small repainting step for today Wink But big step with choosing a tipe of a tiger Wink
I painted the back of the ears and firts strips on the neck.
So, What I`m trying to do, when I`m making the strips...?
I want them  to look more natural, so I don`t draw them so ``perfect`` like a lines.
Let`s don`t forget , that this is a not short fur... :) It can`t be like a zebra`s strips ...
That`s why I make them like this :



Sorry, the photo is not perfect with colors...
I`m using small brush, and a bit more dry.

And the most important thing : My black color is mixed again with brown and ochre paints.
You allready know why Wink

I agree that the Sumatra Tiger is SOOOO beautyful Very Happy

But the model does not really have the build of this, the smallest of the tigers ...as far as I know, of course Embarassed

Hmm, for more then a week, my tutorial is sleeping... Sleep Sleep Sleep  
...of course, becouse of me.. I asked him (the tutorial), can he continue by himself..but, he said NO...
sooo I`m back to take again everything in my hands Laughing

Today, I started very late, so my photos are not good with the light, but I hope, that you can see what I did so far...

18. Continue with the strips.
Let`s first see the photos :







So, like I said on step 17. , I`m trying to make the strips to look more natural.. I don`t draw them so ``perfect`` like a lines... I`m using the texture of the fur to help me for that.
When I`m painting the strips, I don`t use so much paint.. And , they are two ways, which I use..
First is with more dry brush... and second, which is also good : with more water in the paint.
Especially the second one, I`m gonna use on the white parts of the tiger...and I`m gonna explane why, and how, with the next steps Wink

Ok, more work from me...and more steps Wink
I`m allmost done...

19. More strips on diferent places of the body.

Let`s show some close up photos :

Strips on the spine :



Strips from the both sides of the thorax :





and the strips, from the white parts of the tiger`s body :





Now, I`ll explain, my technique for the strips in the white parts.
I`m using the same color, like for the other strips, but this time, I mix the paint with more water.
Like this, the paint become more transparent...
And when I paint with it, the color goes more dark, in the more deep places of the texture...and more light, and transparent in projections of the texture.
So , this is my way of doing this...and maybe my last ``secret`` of painting technique  Laughing

Ok, I`ll show my last photos...and last step Wink

20. The Papo 2006 male tiger is finished :)

I want to show you how I did the paws, so here are 2 photos of them :

Paws from the front legs:



And paws from the back legs:



And this will be my last photo.. Here you can see, how I did the back legs and the tail.
Check the difference, between the strips, from outside and inside of the legs .. :



Sooo, ladies and gentlemen, with exactly 20 steps and 50 photos, my tutorial about, how I`m repainting a tiger, it`s finished!  cheers
Ups..actually, if Susanne likes the model, she will finish my tutorial with some more photos from the whole model  sunny
I called this guy : Tigreco ( like one artist El Greco ) :)
So, earlier today, Tigreco  packed his luggage and he began his journey to Denmark Very Happy
Let`s all of us, wish him luck, with safe and fast arrival :)

Thank you all, for watching my tutorial. Thank you for your kind and warm comments :)
I hope, that my totorial is helpfull for some of you...and I hope , that is not too detailed :)

Your bulgarian friend
Kosta sunny

Thankyou very much kosta for such a wonderful tutorial.

I am going to follow it with extreme exactitude once my homemade siberian tiger is almost finished. 

Thanks again.  I really appreciate.

:) Thank you very much Mgarat, I realy appreciate your comment :)
And I can`t wait to see your siberian tiger :)

I forgot to say something...
When I finished the paint job, I used acrylic varnish, to protect the paint.
My choice is : Acrylic SATIN varnish.
And the brand is : VALLEJO
Our kind friend Anna, recommended me this brand..and I`m very happy with it :)
I tried other brands before...and every time, my modles were sticky after that Mad
With this brand i don`t have problems at all :)
I think, maybe the reason is, that VALLEJO make them varnish on water-based.

Some of my latest repaints, I finished with VALLEJO - MATT varnish...
but with MATT, the model doesn`t look so good. It look`s a bit undistinguished.
With SATIN, the model look`s better. It gives it a nice, discreet shine  Smile

Last thing,
it is important how you use the varnish.
I frizz the spray form 30 sm...I`m waitnig around 15 min to be dry...and I do this at least 3 times everywhere on the model Wink
So, yeah, it is a bit long and slow work....but, in Bulgaria we have one proverb :
``бързата работа - срам за майстора``, which means : ``rapid work - shame for the master`` Wink Laughing
...and for shure, it is a faster work, then repainting Laughing

How did I miss this tutorial? Shocked
This is a fantastic tutorial Kosta and I enjoyed every single picture and explanation of it! And some of your comments and of other members where very funny too! Laughing
You displayed many secrets of the way you paint and I thank you for this! This Tiger is a true piece of art done with lots of craftsmanship and cleverness! Applause
A question from me, did you learn it by yourself or did you have a teacher? Art class?

Very Happy Thank you very much, for all these nice and warm words Shanti sunny
I`m happy, that you saw step by step, my looong tutorial Very Happy and you like it :)

To answer to your question... Before 16 years I finished Art school ( 5 years, drawing, painting, sculpting...)
So I have some experience...But to repaint models is something specific, diferent and new for me :)
I started last wear, mostly repainting wild cats...and since then, I  improved my technique, with trying diferent ways to do that :)
So now , I`m on this level...and I hope, I`ll improved more :)
....and next step - sculpting my own models... Very Happy Let`s see when..  scratch   sunny

...By the way, I have the same question for you Shanti, ..where and how, did you lurn to make such a nice repaints ? :)

Thank you Kosta for the nice explanation! :) This clears a lot in my head! Wink
It sounds like you are a true expert in art science! And your work surely shows it! Applause

I learned repainting just learning by doing (and failing!), studying how other people work, looking and searching for tutorials (there are just a few people who are willing to tell their "secrets") and just doing it. But I am really happy you actually like my repaints! Embarassed
