I want to say this is either a private pet or a very small, unprofessional zoo. Having worked at a larger zoo —albeit not in the big cats department— we were told that interaction with animals that are a potential hazard (which, yes, includes tigers and other things, like maguari storks*) is limited if not prohibited with the higher risk animals. 

Followers? Do you guys know where this is from?

that tiger belongs to michael jamison, and nothing about this gif is ethical. for instance, tigers are wild apex predators, and therefore direct contact is discouraged by every responsible and ethical facility. other than that, any responsible facility would put the tiger under anesthesia first before pulling out a teeth. 

other than general unethicalness, keeping big cats (and yes, tigers included) is downstraight cruel and conservation damaging since it contributes to cub petting industries, tiger part trade in the black market, and many more.

as for michael jamison, i’m sure you’ll learn more about him if you go to tumblr user bigcatawareness or panthxra and search for the tag #michael jamison

I just looked into Micheal Jamison, and it’s sad that this post has over 300,000 notes.

Thank you for the additional information!

do you hear the people s i n g
singing a song of angry men
it is the music of the people
who will { n o t  b e  s l a v e s } again!

when the beating of your heart
echoes the beating of the drums
there is a life about to start

I was wondering how you manage to make your faces actually look like the person they are meant to look like? Some of my facial features always end up looking the same, and yours are so perfect... *showers you with love* You are my art guru.

ART GURU.

BUT NO in all seriousness, thank you! You’re a sweetheart! ;O; Proportions are pretty awful to get down when you’re just starting out, and while there are a bunch of ways you can start practicing with it, it’ll be difficult to be absolutely precise. I still struggle with proportions occasionally. Fun fact: I don’t post all of my work. I only post the work that turned out okay aHA. So basically don’t be frustrated when every single piece doesn’t turn out. Here are a few tips.

Let’s use this picture of Laurence and Hugh because why not.

image

They’ve both got eyes, a nose, and a mouth, so why do they look different?

image

These lines are the generic way of mapping out where to put things together. I used this when I was starting out and it’s a helpful way of getting your hand and wrist to work together. At this point they both nearly look the same. I say this a lot, but I think it’s important: shape is what puts a drawing together.

Compare features of the face to help you figure out placement.

For example:

image

The bottom of his ear lines up right to the middle of his nostril. His tear ducts line up right at the corners of his mouth. Then you can get super technical and say, oh, the outer corner of his eye lines up with that fold in his collar and then from there you can see other things like the approximate distance from the edge of his mouth to that connecting line from the eye to the collar. They don’t meet so his mouth is smaller than the width of his eyes, etc, etc. Whatever works, man.

This is a favorite technique of mine so lemme use another example:

image

Eventually you get to the point where most of your proportional accuracy will come from just looking. You will eventually adjust your eye to see what makes a person who they are by the shape of their features.

image

Laurence has narrow, oval shaped eyes, while Hugh has more of a diamond shape. Not everyone has perfect almond shaped eyes. You can capture an entire character personality through their eyes alone, so shaping them out is extremely important.

The way you draw your lines is also important. Sharp and smooth lines will give your drawing personality. Reveals the character, in a sense.

image

Other things to consider: the shape of the nose.

image

Mads’ is flat and goes down in a steady slope, while Hugh’s juts out in a smooth, almost concave curve.

SHAPES SHAPES SHAPES. Use shapes and structure to find proportion.

image

I did a lot more than I anticipated omg. Oh gosh and I have a feeling I kinda just rambled and didn’T MAKE ANY SENSE AH. Let me know if you need more help or if I was speaking gibberish I am so bad at putting my thoughts into words aHHHH. But gosh I hope this was at least vaguely helpful. You’re a darling and thank you for your kind words!

Good luck on your artistic endeavors! /hugs
