Cindermaw tiger (aka The floor is lava) by Meteorskies Cindermaw tiger (aka The floor is lava) by Meteorskies
Yeah well, for once I am half-serious in the title only because it is my very first piece I painted with my portfolio in mind. No real surprise but it is intended for a MTG-ish style.

On the technical side, the only textures I used are the flames, the rest is painted. I changed my workflow and worked plane by plane, starting with the sky and going up to the foreground, stacking the layers. On the time spent, I would say around 25hr but I can't be sure at this point.

I will try to do few more of these for my portfolio in the near future.
Meanwhile, don't hesitate to leave a comment or a critic.

Enjoy!

Suggester said: Cindermaw tiger (aka The floor is lava) by *Meteorskies features an impressive and majestic fantasy creature that perfectly captures the deadly elegance of a tiger and he amazingly played with the textures of lava and stone to get this splendid effect.

Holy cow. I would love to create a homebrew creature for Pathfinder using that picture (with credit, of course).
Would that be ok?

Well shit, no armor can protect you no weapon can hurt it really, so the only thing in case of lava tiger is retreat.

I like tigers, I like lava... You have combine the two in the best way possible...

I seriously might have to use this as n avatar or something across my many forums, if you don't mind.

Absolutely love it. It combines the majestic beauty of the tiger and the horrificly destructive force of a volcano.

5/5 from me.

I might have to use this as an avatar on forums and whatnot, if you wouldn't mind...
