UR A WIZARD HARRY by V-Inks UR A WIZARD HARRY by V-Inks
Legit art? On my Deviantart? It's more likely than you think!

( don't worry there will be non legit art after this )

It's an old man that looks like a wizard. DEAL WITH IT.

Suggester says: "After seeing "Snowman" by ~ErBrun featured yesterday, I figured I should take a look at the rest of the scratchboard gallery, seeing as it is a fairly underrated medium. That's when I came across this piece thumbnailed above. I love this piece to bits just because the picture as a whole looks so real, and yet when you zoom in to see the individual marks on the scratchboard, you can really see the love and character that went into the cross-hatching here.

This is amazing - do you have any other scratchboard or highly detailed illustrations in a similar style?

Guess I'm late to the party on this picture--but it's really great stuff!

I agree with your thoughts on working with scratch board. It's tough at first, but really fun to see your picture forming. And when you succeed with scratch board--it feels like you've really accomplished something. The finished pictures give a very different feel from other mediums, too.

Anyway, props for this. That texture is wonderful.

I've tried scratchboard before, but not with great results. C: I just bought some new scratching tools, so I'm thinking I'll take another crack at it. Hopefully, it will turn out just as half as good as this.
