Here are some sketches, I have loads of them but I'm not too familiar with CA's uploading system so these are just a few to get started! Most of them are rough preliminary sketches or studies for larger projects, hopefully I can upload more a little later!
Thanks for looking!

Lovely work on those tiger sketches! The pencil work in the first one is especially great. It would be nice if you incorporated the lines and textures you have in your traditional work in your digital pieces, I think it would make for a stronger image. Keep up it up!
Hi Skitters, thanks so much for the lovely comment! When I draw large cats, I try to use a variety of curves and straight lines to get the shape of the jaw and head before I start drawing. Here are some really bad drawings to sort of show how I start (my apologies, they were drawn in photoshop and I'm not use to sketching digitally!) And one finished sketch.
I'll use the circle shape for the head and then straight, more angular lines to map out the fur. I suggest finding pictures to reference where the face is very prominent without a lot of fur because it will help you find where the bones are, and then you can draw the fur on top of the bones after you have the shape As for the jaw, I usually use circles to map out basic shapes
Sorry, I'm not good at explaining things!
