Oustanding work Penny. Really like how you did the pine neddles.

With masks on I am unable to tell who's who! HAHAHHAHA
Very cool. I like the darkness overall and the "animal" look. You didn't anthropomorphize (HEHEHEH) them and they look like raccoons (sp?). But they are up there plotting something... I just know it. hehehehehe
Is this on a tee or canvas or what?
Yes, the pine needles are kickin'!

With masks on I am unable to tell who's who! Very nice! Tim
That is a great piece of work. I think I know which one is "BOB". He is the one on the right. He has bushier eyebrows than "JILL".
How did I do on this one?
You just keep finding time to do the things ya do, don't ya? Well, keep it up and send us some more.

I've never done "nooners" before so this was a first. I'd love to have one as a pet.
I would have no clue! But great job and thanks for sharing.

My best friend always called raccoons "nooners" because her family had one as a pet when she was little and learning how to talk. They were her favorite animals.
My husband had one growing up as well. Unfortunately, This was in the days of 110 cameras so any pictures are a fuzzy representation of one and not of any value as a reference. :(
Thanks, your recognition of raccoons certainly hold a lot of weight!

When I was doing them I thought they resembled hedge hogs. Anyway, the answer to your question is I cheated, cheated, cheated, cheated. This is an 8x10 black clayboard. I scratched out the lines, painted the color, scratched, painted, scratched, painted. It was done in no time flat. It's the first time I ever used clayboard and I loved it. I think I will be using it alot more. The only problems I have with clayboard is the feeling that it's cheating. Yes, I layed down fine lines of color in the scratches but....to me it seemed as though a child could have done it. I have to get over that not everything has to be so technical and difficult.
If this had not been done on clayboard I would have painted fine lines of white (opaque) and layed color over them, white, lay color, white, lay color. The same process only I didn't have to paint the white lines. This is similiar to the process Sam uses only he uses a paint brush for the fine lines of white. There you have it, 3 ways to skin the same Badger.
funny, raccoons as cute and cudly as they can be are second only to the Badger in viciousness.

Your so creative! I'm glad you took the time from your busy schedule to create such a wonderful piece! I have wanted to try this technique for a while now!

Yep, that could be rule that we should all live by!
Great Job Penster!
