White tigers actually come from the Moon. It's their job to watch over it.

This is just... WOW! I mean look at the detail!!! This is very original, i mean i would never think of it XD. There is great shading and a PERFECT background, the earth looks like the actual... EARTH! the little cub is really cool and i think it would be really cool if tigers actually guarded the moon. and it looks very real and the best technique EVER! I don't know if this artist used any references but if she didn't then i'm AMAZED , great job Chiakiro! (by the way this is my first critique so i hope i did a good job)

Overall, really nice piece! I love the concept and originality! This is absolutely beautiful! Your anatomy is spot on and your lighting is perfect! Very sleek and very beautiful! My only critique is the Earth, it doesn't look completely round. The continents look fuzzy and distorted. It isn't bad by any means, it just needs to be more spherical and a little crisper.
DeviantART has tons of good planet tutorials that can help with making planets. It's just something to think about.
This is a really nice piece! The atmosphere is really helped by the calm cool color pallet!

Ooooo! White tiger, white tiger, white tiger white tiger...

Hehe I love white tigers, as you can tell...

This is a very neat pic. Kinda reminds me of my made up Moon Wolves...

That's a very interesting concept...Where did you hear that from? Or did you make that up yourself?

This is so beautiful. Your anatomy and cell-shading-esque style is lovely, and I think the painting on the moon and the Earth look wonderful. Such beautiful colours. ^_^
Then what does that make red foxes then? Martians?

Great job on the picture btw. I love it.Love
