*dies* - The art of Thornwolf — LiveJournal
Oh...my..god. I finally finished it at the zero hour.

Dad's birthday present, I finished it just now and his party is tonight and I still have to go to school *keels over*. Scratchboard of his highschool picture. I don't even want to say how long this thing took me but my hand is killing me.

Current Mood: exhausted exhausted

I can't imagine what it takes to get all of that detail on scratchboard. Amazing.

That's gorgeous Thorny! I love the stippling look. It really gives the piece texture.

Absolutely amazed. ;.; How did you get that STIPPLING effect? I've never used scratchboard, but that's just..amazing. He'll love it.

one #$@&ing dot at a time XP I got lazy towards the end and started hatching a little. Thanks though =D I cant wait to see the look on his face.

o_0 Incredible work! Lovely job! I hope he's thrilled by it!

I'm starting a collection for your carpal tunnel surgery now, though...

There was a reason I stopped doing these in highschool. My elbow locked up completely to the point where I couldn't move it and the doctor had to crack it back into place. Ever since then whenever I did the kind of motion it takes to do a scratchboard it gets painful after awhile. I paced myself over a week to do this though, so that seemed to help, but last night was crunch time so I overexerted myself and damn, I'm feeling it now. owies! =(

Estimated time from start to completion?
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: April 25th, 2005 09:38 pm (UTC) (Link)
10+ hours easy. Not sure on the exact time, but that's spaced out over a week

That detail is insane. I dont know how anyone could have the patience for this
kylet From: kylet Date: April 27th, 2005 05:46 am (UTC) (Link)
And sooooooo? His reaction? :-)
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: April 27th, 2005 05:48 am (UTC) (Link)
he absolutely loved it he said. He told me that it was the best kind of present he could get because "things you could buy me come and go, but this will last forever"

It really made me feel good to hear how much he liked it, which was a lot more than I thought he would =)
