Digital painting tutorial creature concept tiger warrior beast. This tutorial shows you how I create and paint a creature concept design base on a Siberian tiger. This is one way to get a really quick idea down within limited time of 30 minutes. It is a quick conceptual design, not a finished illustration by any means. Most illustration can start off this way.
