I was looking through my art class portfolio the other day when I realized I've never uploaded any of it :ohnoes: I won't put up all of it, just my favourites :)

This is a scratch art drawing I did of a sea otter :) I named him Charlie. I LOVE OTTERS :heart::heart::heart:  .....scratchboards....not so much....so much work

This piece is a 12x24 scratchboard with a bit of watercolor. Beyond basic scanner correction, there is no digital alteration whatsoever. These are two peacocks holding a lily if somehow I am not clear.

The words on the banner are "amor animi arbitrio sumitur, non ponitur", or "We choose to love, we do not choose to cease loving" according to the internet translations that I sorely hope are correct.

This is to be a gift to someone who lost a loved one recently. I am very proud to give this to her.

11x14" scratchboard with colored inks. It is based on a photograph I took at the National Aviary in Pittsburgh. This was my first try coloring scratchboard and it was kind of an adventure! I used Winsor & Newton drawing inks first but didn't like them, so I switched to Liquitex drawing ink halfway through and liked that much better.

I gave the original to my great aunt for her 100th birthday in early October 2009. Prints are available (note me.)

This weekend is turning out to be really productive and this took about 6 hours today. I had fun with the fiberglass brush and learned a new technique.

This is the last 8x10 amperstand scratchboard I have. I am going go upscale and order a bigger boards today - 11x14?

The final for my illustration project based on Ned Kelly, done on scratch paper with a scalpel.

I submitted a version with a 'Ned Kelly' type on a banner done in photoshop but I think it takes away from the illustration. Enjoy!

Ned Kelly was an infamous Irish-Australian outlaw and to some a folk hero for his defiance of the colonial authorities. Here's [link] (more info).

Heath Ledger (R.I.P.) portrayed Ned Kelly in the 2003 film 'Ned Kelly'. I used his [link] (pose) as a reference, as well as [link] (this) for the Kelly house.
Enjoy! :)

The same scratchboard of Darth Malak (StarWars: Knights of the Old Republic) from before. Coloring by Justin Binne with markers. I still really like this.
