Misc art stuff

Wasn't sure where to put this and I figured here was better then no where! These are both some scratch board and a couple of digital based ones that I did for my friend.


I don't know how many of you do scratch board, but I have been messing around with it on and off for years.




These are a couple of the more digital pieces.




This is the Stallion at Stud ad that I did for Smokes Navajo for the 2010 breeding season.

These are great! I love the barrel racing scratch board. I've been trying to experiment with different techniques/mediums as I'm stuck in graphite. That last digital is beautiful!

Wow I like your scratch boards although I have no idea what a scratch board is either, but I take it that you drew the pictures by hand so that much I understand I like it!!

Basically, on scratch board you have a layer of black ink over white (or any color really). You scratch off the black to reveal the color underneath. So in doing scratch board, you are color the highlights where as in graphite or pen you would be coloring the dark points.

That first scratch board is incredible. It really pops off the screen!

As always, Thanks for listening!

Wow I like the picture of the horses, I have been painting horses myself lately in water color, I still preffer Oil though but right now I am trying out other mediums, I am not too good with Oil pastel, I have not tried chalk pastel, but I definitely do charcoal, much to my surprise I can actually draw, and here all these years I always said that I couldn't draw to save myself, but!!! I still do not know how to post anything on this forum. I do not know anything about scratch boards, but that is really nice.
