Till The End

This small piece was completed alongside of "Heartsick" and "White Queen" (haven't posted this yet). It is the claw of a white owl.

Scratchboard and watercolor, 5x7 inches. Normally, I say things like "Only a tiny bit of post processing here" but with this piece there is a little more photoshop tinkering than is usual. My small format scanner is having a great deal of trouble differentiating subtle darks and low mid tones, so this darker piece scanned really poorly. A little bit of digital plastic surgery makes it look better, but I think it deviates a little from the piece in real life.

Your textures never cease to amaze me. This might be some of the best fur/featheriness I've seen from you yet.

Thanks again! While scratchboard can be murder to work with, one of its perks is that you can get some really amazing textures with different abrasive mediums. The feathers/claw fur you see here was carved with fiberglass, an etching needle, and a rough cloth. Sometimes it just comes together, and I think I did well with this one.
