Being the huge predator fan that I am, is the title referencing the fact that he shares similarities to a wounded tiger, or is it saying that the predator we see here is referred to as "Tiger" and is wounded. I know it sounds stupid, but I love knowing the details of pieces of art, especially if the title is referencing the latter. If it is, then what makes this one special enough to be titled "Tiger"? If not, then do please ignore my idiocy and fan-boyism.

You simply copy portions of the background and slightly move those layers around :)
