Re: 'Alone' - Bengal tiger Wip

I learned that the hard way also. Luck was with me too though. This is really a fantastic piece of artwork.

Re: 'Alone' - Bengal tiger Wip

I just love seeing other people's styles on scratchboard, it's such a unique medium. This looks beautiful, very detailed!

Re: 'Alone' - Bengal tiger Wip

Thanks all!!

Another update!



Really getting close to the finish and I hope to have it finished by today!! I am just pulling together all the background elements to combine the whole picture.

I also discovered that for me if I intend to do a full background it is best to complete that first, before you spend too much time on the actual subject. I feel this way because I do feel confident enough with scratch to successfully scratch out the subject but not so much with the background.

I am also on a mission this year to do 5 pieces that I am particularly happy with so that I can apply for the SAA in 2012. I want to ask a question do you think that I have found my own style? Is my work recognisable?

All C and Cs are welcome and thanks for looking!!

Re: 'Alone' - Bengal tiger Wip

Terrific job here, Irfan. Yes, you have your own style and a lot has to do with your subject choices and the intrigue you tend to create in your work.

Re: 'Alone' - Bengal tiger Wip

Love the drama with leaving so much black. Great job from someone who thinks she knows what she is doing?

Re: 'Alone' - Bengal tiger Wip

Irfan, I am sorry, I have looked at this piece numerous times and I figured I had commented, but alas I had not. So........this is great!!!!!!!! I really like the shadows and the mood it creates, and the ground is really nice as well.

Re: 'Alone' - Bengal tiger FINISHED

Well I had not looked in at this one since the early stages and what a treat to see the finished piece! I really like the way you did the dappled shadows.

Well done!

VERY impressive Irfan. You definitely have a style of your own - very intricate.
