The Sadhu and the tiger by Lelia The Sadhu and the tiger by Lelia
Another pic for practicing based in a real fact, an old Sadhu (a holy man in India) started to meditate when he opened his eyes a tiger was lying next to him calmly.
I followed ~Barukurii's colorouring method, I love the result is beautiful :D If you can test it this is the tutorial [link]

The time of day in this picture looks like this was during sunset; the orange color on the ground makes me think of the sun going down.  The man and the tiger look like they're a little ways from the nearest village, and they're both near a river.  I don't know that India has a lot of lakes.  The color scheme is pretty nice, calm, and mellow.  It's interesting how you drew the background with less detail than the man or the tiger; but I like it in that it brings attention to the point of the picture.

I love how the old man is in a state of peace and meditation to the extent that he drew the attention of a tiger.  The man is just there in a deep state of focus, calm, and meditation.  But the tiger is there looking at the man eagerly like he wants something from him; or the tiger just simply wants to be acknowledged by the old man.  But the old man is so calm and at peace that it enables him to have the affections of a tiger. 

I typically think of a picture as being relaxing when it can have green minty colors, or light blues.  But this picture is relaxing to looking while yet you used a color scheme with a lot of orange.  I may comment on this picture more later on.

But you did a really good job here! Clap Clap deviantART deviantART Clap Clap

The colors are gorgeous and I really like the tiger's expression. He's like "Hey buddy, whatcha doing ?"
