21/10/2012 ~ Roaarrr!!!!

Not content with dogs and giraffes I made the mistake of asking H&C Jnr what animal he would like me to make a while back ...

 

... a TIGER came back his answer.

 

Oh dear! Nonetheless I sought the help of Google which landed me at a site that told me how to make one but it still proved fairly difficult until finally I managed to make a complete animal with my last of countless orange balloons.

 

I managed to add a few stripes without bursting it and couldn't resist capturing my efforts for all to see ;).

 

This was photographed with a speedlight either side and slightly behind to enhance the translucent effect without adding too many highlights and I used a mixture of boxes and sheets of card to effectively barndoor the speedlights to protect the background and avoid flare.
