Re: WIP - Tiger

Newest update....had to take a couple of days off from doing this piece...got to a point where I had to walk away from it or I would have ruined it

he is becoming more of a challenge that I expected thought a close up would have been easier...who was I kidding LOL

Re: WIP - Tiger

Hi Sheryl,

Mr. Tiger is becoming more and more impressive as each new post goes up! I really enjoy (and learn so much from!) watching a WIP as it develops. This one does prompt me to ask a question of the group as a whole. I notice that Sheryl puts in all of the tiger's many whiskers first, before she develops the underlying hair. For some reason, this seems real counter-intuitive to me, I would have guessed that the hair needed to be fully developed first, with the whiskers being scratched on top of the finished hair. Obviously, it certainly works putting the whiskers down first.

My question is, of course, does everyone do the whisker first? Or does it make a difference? I have gone back through the various demos in the "Sticky Notes" section, and can't really tell from the examples there.

Becky

Re: WIP - Tiger

Hi Becky

thanks so much for your wonderful comments and I too learn alot from the WIP here in this forum from the masters of this medium, the artist here are fantastic teachers.

I see what you are saying about the whisker. As I am learning (this is only my 5th board evah) and still trying to figure out what works and what doesn't, I have to say it is a wee harder to scratch over the whiskers and to get the hair to fall the way I want it to in the areas where there is whiskers showing... it is probably why it take me a bit longer to do a board. I may experiment and see if it works the other way as well as you have suggested.

it will be interesting to hear from the other artists and see how they approach doing that part of an animal.

Sheryl ;-)

Re: WIP - Tiger

Wow, I love this!

I've only done a couple of scratchboards myself, but so far I've put in the whiskers last.

Re: WIP - Tiger

Hi Everyone

well after a long break from working on this tiger due to cutting my finger really bad with the xacto knife (I may share the story another day LOL) a lesson learned never play with sharp instruments at 6:30am and without having your fist cup of coffee in you LOL

well here is the long awaited update on my scratchboard....he is almost there one more day (I think) and he will be done. and to the next board.

Re: WIP - Tiger

Ouch! I've cut my finger really bad before. Blood does not look good on a scratchboard!

This looks wonderful! Would it be possible to get a close-up of the eyes? I am curious to see what technique you used!

Re: WIP - Tiger

Hi Ellie

Here is a close up scan of the eyes I hope it came out OK....I use a stippling technique for the eyes and nose....haven't experimented with other techniques yet I know alot of artist use the cross hatching or a conbination of the two.

So far seems to work for me....just takes foreva all those little dots LOL

Re: WIP - Tiger

Looking great, Sheryl! I had missed this one, so I just scrolled through your process and you're doing a fantastic job.

I'm a stipple fan myself, so I love the way you've handled the eyes.

I also add whiskers last.
