Ordered a packet of scratchboard and cutters. For starters, made the Lion on the cover of the packaging itself :D

My first ever!  :painting:

This was fun, I saved a few pics of Bear, Dog and Tiger to do next!


Carpe Diem!

The lion is beautiful. I’ve never tried scratchboard. I must give it a try one of these days.

Thank you Nolan!   :thankyou:

I watched the first episode (on loop) of the course and from there only I got to learn about this new medium. It was fun, I could zone out. When I saw the Lion on the packaging cover, I gravitated towards it :) Will now do the 3 lessons and then go to my favourite subjects, of course by now you know, Cats are not my favourite.

What a hypocrite I can be :P Lion is a BIG cat, but doesn't feel like one  :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:


:not_worthy: Thank you Dennis! Means a lot! 

:not_worthy: Thank you Bill! It is mostly because of 2 things - how beautifully Nolan and Dennis teach and I am perpetually excited about everything under the sun!
Carpe Diem!

 :thankyou: Kathy!
It is fun! The cutters weren't great. I later used the x-acto knife that Nolan uses in his tutorial! It is much better, though a little tedious but rewarding. The cutter set is great if you want some specific patterns, but I found them to be inferior both in precision and rigour. Or that I am still learning and using it wrong.

Just sharing...

 :painting: Happy creating!
Carpe Diem!
