The subject for the "Mystic Tiger" is an Indian tiger named Axle at the Greensboro Natural Science Center. Almost floating in space, the tiger's side view is captured in mid-stride with only a hint of shadow in the foreground. The background was rendered to simulate the almost disembodied effect the animals inspire with their graceful movements when they stalk their territory. The emphasis on the form of the tiger and its stripes highlights the power and beauty of the animal. The tone of the tiger was a challenge to render naturally, with mainly earth colors instead of metallic, artificial pigments.
