Scratchboard Hall of Fame 2012

Better late than never

Pick your favourite piece created in the year 2012 and show it to us, giving a few reasons why you think it's your best piece of the year.

Let's keep the thread to our image postings only, this time, so no commenting on each other's work and the thread won't get too unwieldy - that way it's one image per post and a thrill to look at. If you want to link to the original thread where you posted the images so that people can comment that is fine to do.

The 2011 Hall of Fame can be checked out by clicking the link.

It was between the Quail and the Rosebud with Dew. I settled for the Rose as festival viewers over the weekend thought it was a photograph....

Re: Scratchboard Hall of Fame 2012

It was a toss up between my dog Magpie and this one, but I chose this because it's a different subject and technique than most of mine.

"Destiny", 5 x 7

Re: Scratchboard Hall of Fame 2012

I was going to post my piece "Pears Reflected" because I do think it is my best piece of 2012 and it was awarded Best in Show (Master) at our ISSA show last July. The link is to the wip.
Instead, I decided to go with "Sweet Temptations". It was the first one I did, in color and with the use of an airbrush, that I feel turned out well.

Re: Scratchboard Hall of Fame 2012

My personal favorites were the yawning tiger or the goofy ostrich. However, I think my best scratch was "MY Ice Cream" featuring "Ace" Adams' grandson, Izak.

Re: Scratchboard Hall of Fame 2012

I didn't do much this last year so was limited on what I could choose from. 'Bosque Reflections' is my favorite from 2012. It's a small 5x7 board done from a photograph taken at New Mexico's Bosque de Apache wildlife preserve. I loved paring it down to birds and reflected water, leaving off extra birds, twigs and grasses poking out of the water.

Re: Scratchboard Hall of Fame 2012

This was my favorite in 2012. I used a lot of colors in it and I realized that subtle changes in color in a small part of the board makes a big difference in the overall effect.

Re: Scratchboard Hall of Fame 2012

Carson is the only one finished in 2012, so guess he's my choice by default.

Re: Scratchboard Hall of Fame 2012

I didn't actually do much in 2012 compared to other years and still have a few 95% completed. I do have a couple which I think were my best but as I can choose only one I will pick the one I did of my daughter's mule as she thinks its the best.

Re: Scratchboard Hall of Fame 2012

This would be my favourite, but then i didn't have many to choose from. I really enjoyed this piece because it had hair, metal and leather to play with. Sorry about the bad pic.

Re: Scratchboard Hall of Fame 2012

My favorite piece this year is my tiger ''Prestige'' because I started this one as a demo at my first participation to an artshow (local) wich was a great experience.

The reference I used is from a wonderfull photographer on Flickr ''Tambako the Jaguar''. The first picture from him and I already started another piece from his ref and have a few ones on the waiting list. So I can pretend this photographer is my discovery of the year also.
