Alabaster chuckles something to themself under their breath about "works asking for an opinion of themselves" usually being slightly less literal, then gives the tiger a good look over. "The basic concept of a tiger of moving stone is not bad -- not groundbreaking or exceptional, but hardly overdone or trite. The craftsmanship you have is exquisite, I can see your muscles moving under your skin and your skin shifting as you move. Very good anatomy and a very good grasp of the material -- lapis lazuli, is it? In any case, good choice -- granite would have been too stiff, artistically, and marble would easy to make cliche or overly plain in the pursuit of simplicity. Speaking of which, you are a model of artistic restraint -- no superfluous ideas, no wasted strokes, as it were, no gilded lilies, but also not overly plain or lacking artistic follow-through. I'm quite impressed, in all."
