this technique was made for this picture. I'm almost in tears here...
Really impressive, congrats ! Remembers me Bernie Wrightson Frankenstein plate 13 ! http://www.comicartfans.com/GalleryPiece.asp?Piece=400913&GSub=62493
Actually, it's even closer to Franklin Booth. Same "feel" and technique as well, with the combination clayboard reverse and positive inking. Not that it's derivative! Very original use of it! Booth died in 1948 and I've never seen anyone use the style to a similar effect until now. Fantastic work. Some of the atmosphere of the Harry Potter pieces even conjure Doré's "Idylls of the King" with the dramatic lighting and sense of grandeur and space. You're in some special company, indeed!
Beautiful piece dude!! This is all scratch board?!
Nicolas > Oh I love that piece very much. I love how he used the white to suggest the snow, it's so simple but so effective.Robert> It's a mix really, claybord is basically scratchboard that isn't pre-inked. So some areas I ink then scratch out, some areas I fill in with pens.
okay.... ça va loin ton taff... je me prends des coups de martifouet à chaque fois !
pour la prochaine je vise le coup de martifouet clouté ;)
moi ça me cloute déjà.
Bon Dieu, mais quelle tuerie... Gaaah.
