Light Scratch by Novastar2486 Light Scratch by Novastar2486
Here is another project from my media studies class. This is done on black scratch board. I have never used this medium before. I can't say I liked working with it all that much, but I kind of like the atmosphere it creates.

Thank you all so much for the DD. It was greatly unexpected and I appreciate it very much!

Light Scratch by ~Novastar2486 The suggester says, "this is a great piece of art work. Its really detailed and I have never seen anything like this before. Also, I love how the artist made the shadow and the highlights on the light bulb." Amazingly, this is ~Novastar2486's first DD. Take a look at his varied gallery. He has beautiful photography, as well as traditional and digital works. Take a look around his gallery. You won't be disappointed! ( Suggested by SugarPaw123 and Featured by WDWParksGal )

Wow, this is beautiful! When you see it from afar / as a thumbnail, you have the feeling it's either a photo or an intensely complex crosshatch. And then it's actually shocking seeing it in full-size and realizing how simple it really is. You managed to create an almost photo-realistic image with very few lines... and that's genius!

Lovely piece :thumbsup:

I'm always looking for interesting things to draw and when I saw your photo as a DD, I thought "wow, that would be cool to draw" so I clicked on it... only to find "Holy #&%@ it's not a photo?" VERY well done and deserving of the DD...

Love your technique, very precise yet flowing at the same time. I for real thought this was a photo. That doesn't happen to often. Great Job!

Scratchboard is kind of... my least favorite thing to do.

But man-oh-man! Everything about this is wondrous- not leastly the way you bent the scratchings of the table-texture around the shape of the light bulb, that's really got me impressed :)
