Tiger by Lalita17

Tigers cannot purr. To show happiness, tigers squint or close their eyes. This is because losing vision lowers defense, so tigers (and many other cats) only purposefully do so when they feel comfortable and safe.

There were once nine subspecies of tigers: Bengal, Siberian, Indochinese, South Chinese, Sumatran, Malayan, Caspian, Javan and Bali. Of these, the last three are extinct, one is extinct in the wild, and the rest are endangered.

This one (Charcoal and graphite) took 19 hours to finish~ 
If you're interested in seeing it in person it will be part of the Artist Showcase, August 2nd - 9th at St. Stephen University~

To adopt an animal through World Wildlife Foundation:…

Bengal tiger: Less than 2,000
Indochinese tiger: 750-1,300
Siberian tiger: Around 450
Sumatran tiger: 400-500
Malayan tiger: 600-800
South Chinese tiger: Extinct in the wild
Caspian tiger: Extinct
Javan tiger: Extinct
Bali tiger: Extinct

There are only about 3,500 tigers left in the wild.
That's less than the population of St. Stephen.

Tigers scratch trees and use their urine to mark their territories. Their urine smells strongly of buttered popcorn.…

When I was starting high school, and I saw each senior year graduate, I thought all those kids had it all figured out.

I was sure that by the time I got into grade twelve I would have some kind of set-in-stone life plan and just like the seniors I saw, I would go to University with some kind of.. idea, at least. But instead, I'm petrified. I find that in this moment, I am more unsure of myself and what I want to do with my life, than I have ever been.

  • Mood: Cheerful
  • Listening to: Poor Unfortunate Souls~
  • Reading: Beowulf
  • Watching: Under the Tuscan Sun
  • Drinking: Caramel Tea


:iconexcitedhiplz:Hello to anyone who is bored enough to read this!
I’m an intense theater geek and poetic freak.:iconweekenddanceplz:
I love art, creating art, admiring other artists and their forms of art, and singing out loud to whoever is around. I sing while I brush my teeth; I think that’s worth bonus points.
Over my not very vast years I’ve played a snooty actrice, lovesick bimbette, a little boy with a big imagination, talk-show host, but more importantly a mother who’s lost a son, a mighty sea witch, kick ass archer chick, maenad for the God of wine and theatre: Dionysus, and a victim who succumbs to the worst form of revenge by taking fate into her own hands.
I mostly do pencil/graphite/charcoal art, but I love watercolor, and sometimes I fiddle with acrylic. :iconspreadmoreloveplz:
I also stare at lots and lots of photography… :lol:
One day I hope to be respected in the art and theater world. Many, many years from now, when I have spent time working on these crafts. :no:
I play the piano religiously. When I’m away from home, thinking of my piano makes me homesick. Also my fluffy cat: Sebastian. :iconaheartforyou:
I love laughing till your sides hurt, sitting in the dark theatre after the movie is done just to watch the credits roll by and contemplate, eating passion-fruit just for the name, falling in love with strangers and never seeing them again because that ache in your heart is both melancholy and a sign you're living, and I love love.

Optimism is contagious.:iconcocoloveplz:

Heh, yeah, it sure has been a long time. Well I'm.. I've been pretty good, actually. I mean, it's been three years so a lot has happened. A lot. Really a lot. So it's kind of hard to simply rely on one or two words to answer that.
You know, I clearly remember the fact that you were always so sweet and nice to talk to. How about I send you a note? I'd love to tell you what I've been up to this year and of course I would love to hear about you too!
