I enjoy this color phase just a little too much, which renders it highly disappointing that I can’t seem to get it to come out properly in a drawing. (My colored pencils just do not come in — or blend into — that shade of “pink”.) On the other hand, I do love this lady’s (not entirely nature-based) stripe pattern, and this shading is at least much closer to that of the “real” strawberry tiger.
I want a tail like this one. You could just fold it over your shoulders and wrap yourself in it like a scarf, couldn’t you?
