This picture was commisioned by some annoying little kid on the bus one day. He gave me the criteria (ie. half man, half tiger, wings, etc..) and I drew the picture. I later decided that the face of my tiger-man would be the face I would use for Julian (a mortal that the vampire Chael falls in love with, but he gets killed..).
Though the wings on my tiger-man are too small to maintain 'real' flight, they create an illusion of flight, allowing him to leap greater distances, and maybe hover over the ground. His wings allow him to glide, somewhat, but the wings are too small to fly truely.
