Paper Tiger by contraomnes Paper Tiger by contraomnes
It's a bit early but I'll probably be too busy once it actually comes around so here's an early Chinese New Years piece. It's the year of the Tiger this year! This was also for a class assignment; I was supposed to illustrate something from 'missed connections' on craigslist. It's about this guy getting hit on by a girl sales associate and she calls him a tiger even though he's sort of a pussy cat. Only without the cat part. Hope you guys like it~

Paper Tiger is an absolutely killer concept, illustrated in *contraomnes's crisp and fluid style, one that's become distinctly iconic. Enjoy! ( Suggested by pashosha44 and Featured by snowmask )

This is really gorgeous.
...Coincidentally, it also really reminds me of a Calvin and Hobbes panel where Hobbes makes a little tiger out of clay and Calvin is angry at him for being good at art.
But anyways. This is great.
