Oh, wow...this is an amazing scene, for starters. Then on top of all that, the colors are great--especially how the tiger pops out in front of everything else. It's face is terrifying and really, really awesome all at the same time.
This is just such a stunning work. I can't help but to +fav it.

oo! advanced critique encouraged. does that mean i can BASH THE HECK out of your piece? mwa hwa hwa *feels evil*

well even if i wanted to, i couldn't, because there is nothing to bash here. i'm in love with the bright, pure colors, especially on the tiger. the tiger is amazing. i've noticed that less experienced and talented artists tend to have a shaky, hesitant quality to their linework which inevitably results from lack of skill. you're in every way the complete opposite: bold, confident lines, and perfect choices as to where to go into detail (the head of the tiger) and where to keep the shading more simple and bold (the shoulder of the tiger, parts of the bushes in the bg).
i'm not sure exactly what technique you used but it looks like you did a lot of layering with the colors, and made some layers more opaque then others. admittedly i have little knowledge of vectored works but this is, as far as i can tell, a very unique and attractive method of cel shading.
i love how you used orange, green and blue whilst maintaining the brightness and of each color and making them work together. although i know many people disagree with me, i usually find green and orange to be a hideous color combination; in this case, you've made it work and it looks wonderful. you've got a good eye for colors.
the sky and the stars are particularly beautiful. really unique technique of adding dynamism and texture to the sky.
flawless perspective too!
the only critique i have is maybe the bottom portion of the picture. i think it's the shadow of the tiger casting darkness on the grass, but it's very blurred and kind of compromises the solidity of the picture, compositionally as well as in terms of technique (it sort of messes with the firm, solid edges of the cel shading you used for everything else). also, looks like (particularly the bottom left portion of the pic) the triangular grass shapes have been chopped; it would have maybe worked better if the triangles were sharp.
i honestly hate giving critiques... it makes it sound like the pic is bad.. which is not the case here. so consider it a serious compliment that i went through the effort of critiqueing for your pleasure xDDDD
+fav, of course.

Your style is truly unique!
This one remind me of the old circus posters when they tried to terrorised young children by presenting the lions and tigers as huge monsters! The colors, the details... everything make this artwork a real delight for the eyes!

thank you :) an idea that i wanted to express was that since the other characters were so much smaller than the tiger, it appeared to them to be gigantic... although his particular breed is the smallest of all the tigers.

Buenos dias, this be the Captain snooping about the galleries! I gotta say you show some amazing skills. You have a unique and original (not to mention professional!) quality to your work and we need more artists like you. The more you stare at it the more you see the details pop up. Its wonderful how you can give expressions and moods to your character, and how your coloring style just sucks you in and you get a sense that there's actual depth to the piece. You definitely have a gift, and I see a bright future ahead of you in the world of art. Take care and keep on rockin'! And stay original, that's what'll make you stand out and help inspire.

The emotions in each face carry weight. The subtle shading work is brillant and I like the juxtapostion of the action scene with the stillness of the night.

I think the night sky could be more darker shades of blue.

Bravo +fav

erm...i'm really sorry, my computer had a spaz attack when i was typing your comment. i wasn't even done and for some insane reason it decided to post, TWICE. grrrr. anyway, what i was going to say, as others have mentioned, is that this looks like it could have come straight out of a children's book. awesome illustration! :D
