A cat in Venice

My old school gave us some art supplies but I left them alone for more than a year. This is my second attempt at using the scraperboards.

The cat is my own design, inspired by Martin Toonder's work and the background is based on a photo of Venice by Carlo Ponti.

Next I am going to try the oil pastels.

I think it's really fun to work with the scrapeboards, though somehow I always get a creepy feeling over the pictures I try to make.. ^^;
Yours looks much nicer :) very cute character. how long did it take?
Aeonna's avatar
Thank you.
I don't know exactly how long it took because I worked with it on and off, to be specific while I was waiting for my computer to start /react. All in all, maybe four hours.

This is really good i like the cat and the background designs, it's a gothic kind of style.

Thanks! It was a really nice background to render. The reference photo was quite atmospheric.

It looks beautiful!
You got a really nice contrast with the black and white in this! :D
I don't have the patience to work with scraperboards XD
Aeonna's avatar
I find it quite relaxing ^^

so is it hard to get scraperboard where you live?
cause it's impossible to find in both denmark and norway...and it's so fun to use:3
Aeonna's avatar
Yes, it is fun ^^
This was given to us by our school, but I know that the shop Kreatima has it in stock, where it goes under the name of "Skrapkartong". Maybe they do international post delivery, but if not I guess you will have to make a trip to Stockholm.

*makes note of the names*

Aeonna's avatar
I think it is rather difficult, but the second attempt was a noticeable improvement.

Jättesnyggt! Det blir en cool effekt med såna plattor man skrapar på tydligen, skulle vara kul att pröva =)
Aeonna's avatar
Ja, gör det ^^ När skolan ändå ger oss dem är det ju lika bra.
insp88's avatar
Fast vi fick inga såna skrapplattor.. >_>
Men jag kan alltid skrapa på väggarna eller nåt :XD:

Ajdå, synd >.< Hörde att det var lite problem med materialet för er... Får hoppas att ni får det sen!
