Xingweiai Fang
The Year of Tiger


Un-commissioned | New Talent

Why did you make this work:
Inspired by the breathtaking exhibition which demonstrated the most excellent animation masterpieces from Dreamwork in 2020 in the National Gallery of Australia, I began to develop a symbolic way of drawing through which I want to distill the core spiritual between multiple subjects in an artwork, never the less the figure of human beings are no longer the primary visual element.

How was the illustration used:
The illustration was the extensional work of commercial assignment. It is only used for personal exploration.

How did you make this work:
The very first thing to do is to draw the looks of the different tigers, then arrange the composition of the illustration so that the tigers will be placed in appropriate positions. Then, plan the entire composition of the work with the help of a golden ration diagram. Finally, color the tigers and the surroundings according to their local colors and environmental colors.
