Scraperwolf by SamuraiDragon Scraperwolf by SamuraiDragon
Another art project! This time on scratchboard! *media testing, y'see*

I've never used scratchboard before. It takes so loong!

The wolf is drawn freehand, but the ruins and tree had photo reffs. So thanks to =SalsolaStock and ~BlackWolver-STOCK

I used Photoshop to give it some more colour, but I couldn't improve the clarity of the image, sorry D:

I'm aware there are lighting/clutter issues, but feel free to critique away~

Wow - this is fantastic! I haven't tried a scratchboard yet... unless you count those things that we used to in Primary School using black pastel ;p
I love the texture of the rocks, they look so real! :)

Scratchboards are really lots of fun - just gotta be careful cause there ain't no erasing! :D

I'm really proud of the rocks. Unlike the wolf I had a reference for them (I wish I had a ref. for the wolf, there was nothing I could use at the time though) so I spent extra care to get it right :D

Thankyou!

*yells at awesomeness* OMG!

Is a scratchboard one of those things with foil underneath a black coating that you scratch away? :confused:

I really like it. The leaves, dude! The leaves! They're so good!!

Thanks so much! I'm not sure how much scratchboard would cost, (my teacher supplied mine) but I'd definitely say it's worth the money.

Whoa i thought it was a photo too!!
:giggle: i have to agree with Sephy, the eyes do seem a little..overwhelmed by the surrounding fur, but you did a great job, considering you cant exactly undo something XD

SamuraiDragon Featured By Owner May 2, 2009  Student Digital Artist
x33 Scratchboards even harder then pen, becasue you can't "outline inconspicuously" - it all comes out really bold.
xD The one fallback with traditional art - No undo button! 8D
Aye, with the eye my teacher even suggested blacking it in a little with fineliner.
Thanks very muchly!! <33

Wow! i actully thought this was a photo! :clap: It looks exelent!The only think i can Critique on is the wolf's eyes. It seems lost in fur, as in, it's hard to see. But other than that. THIS IS EXELENT! If i was a teacher I'd give you an A :D
