🐯 I am not a fat tiger 🐯
In the year of the tiger, the elements and creative products of the tiger can be seen everywhere.
Among them, the chubby, naive fat tiger can be called the hottest tiger star in the Year of the Tiger.
With its adorable mannerisms and plump figure, the fat tiger has completely inverted the domineering and fierce image of the tiger as the king of all animals in people's mind.
The Story of Fat Tiger
Most people may think, like me, that this image was designed for the Year of the Tiger.
Actually, it is not.
The Fat Tiger is an animal image which was created by Bu2ma in 2017. The inspiration for the Fat Tiger is a northeastern tiger.

Bu2ma accidentally saw a set of pictures on the Internet. A northeastern tiger that had been eating very fat caught the attention of Bu2ma.
Then he casually used his iPad to draw such an attractive fat tiger. This is the origin of the Fat Tiger.
It was not until 2020 that Fat Tiger attracted the attention of the public due to a set of " Fierce Tiger Goes to the Mountain" and "Fierce Tiger Goes Down the Mountain" pictures.
Until now, Bu2ma has had millions of followers on social media. More and more people are falling in love with this fat tiger...
Why is the Fat Tiger so cute?
The secret which makes the Fat Tiger so adorable is surprisingly the cat!
It turns out that before drawing the Fat Tiger, Bujima had been learning to draw cats.
There are many similarities between cats and tigers. A lot of the gestures and expressions of the Fat Tiger are from the cat.
In the opinion of Bu2ma, it is a kind of contrasting cuteness to have such a huge and frightening animal as a tiger to make a cat's expression and behavior.
So, 🐱➕🐯 ➡️ Fat Tiger ❗️
