First attempt at a whiteboard.

Hi everyone,

So I got sick of doing black and white work and really, really wanted to try a whiteboard. I didn't have any on hand and since I am from Scotland I would have had to order from online which was too much hassle so I decided to clear a 5x7 scratchboard to white. I then got out my airbrush and started, I never used a brush on this piece until the end where I just wanted to add some minor darks etc.

This was the result
European Brown Bear
'Winters Glare'
5x7



I am pretty happy with the result and have already started a new one which I plan to put up as WIP here.

All C and Cs welcome and thanks for looking

Re: First attempt at a whiteboard.

Your first attempt at a whiteboard was definitely a success, can't wait or your second attempt.

Re: First attempt at a whiteboard.

Lovely, so shocked to read it's only a 5&7. I love how deceptive the size of a scratchboard can be, you can't get a much finer line than a knife blade.

Very well done Irfan. Good sense of perception and depth with the muted background.
