"Friendly Tiger" Pastel Portrait

I have been painting/drawing a lot again over the past few months and I really enjoyed creating this "FRIENDLY TIGER" pastel portrait last week for a childs' room. The little girl loves tigers and wanted a painting for her bedroom, nothing ferocious looking, just happy and friendly and we came up with this little chap. He has been created on grey pastel velour paper using pastel pencils. Portrait has been fixed and has been framed under glass.

A pastel portrait of ALFIE, a West Highland Terrier, on velour paper, 6 x 9 ins.
I am now currently working on Thomas' portrait in pastel. He is a tabby & white male shorthair cat.
