I'll be right beside you. by IrisHime I'll be right beside you. by IrisHime
♪ "I want you to know,
I need you to know;
when the world is on your back,
and you think that you will never last,
when you're lonely and you are confused,
I'll be right beside you.
When your walls are closing in,
and you think you'd rather sink than swim,
when there's nothing left for you to lose,
I'll be right beside you.
I'll be with you.
Hold on, don't you let go of me!
I'll be here through it all.
Hold on, when you're ready to fall.
I will carry you.
I will never leave you.
I will lift you if you fall." ♪


Right Beside You - Building 429

"Scratch board" assignment for class, but subject matter was whatever we wanted. So I decided to do some Magdoters. :love:
Buaaah. Just love these two.

So you started with a black background and painted white on top to make it look like a scratch board? That is cool!

IrisHime Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Not painted ith white - you had to use the eraser tool to erase out the black layer so you see the white layer underneath. :nod:

Thank you very much~♥

The scratchiness is a result of just the way that I erased; kind of haphazard and all over the place. I wanted it too look sort of scratchy, because that's always how my "scratch-boards" come out in real life.

If you want to, they actually don't really take all that much time to do. This was probably the fastest assignment I've done this semester.

ooh? I'll have to try it then~ but I wouldn't really know how to start it. was that a college assignment?

IrisHime Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Yeah, it's for university.

Basically all you do is open a photoshop/Sai file (I worked in sai), create a new layer on top of the background layer, and flood-fill it with black (in my case, I just chose a grayish colour instead of pure black, but it's all up to you). Then you use namely the eraser tool;
you stay on the top layer at all times and simply erase out anything that you want to be white. It's best to use a small brush for your eraser - for me, I was working with a 10" x 10" canvas at 400 DPI (so that the print would come out smooth); the posted image is literally only 17% the size of the original, and I only worked with a 20 pixel brush and a 50 pixel brush for most of the time. That's how to get those lovely very small little scratches of texture everywhere.

My best suggestions are:

-have an idea for the drawing going in
-have some strong ideas about light and shadow shapes
-be very loose with your initial sketch
-keep the foreground colour and background colour of your brushes on black (or whatever colour you choose to use) so that if you accidentally use it instead of your eraser you will know immediately and not end up ruining your drawing by using white "paint" instead of using the eraser. XD
-don't be afraid to edit out and back in with the eraser tool AND the paintbrush.
-Just experiment with it and have fun. C:

Yeah; you just create a layer of black and primarily erase to do the drawing, rather than doing a black drawing on a clear layer. Kind of a "reverse process". XD

Yes
I missed doing scratchboards
It's so cool how it works though.
What did the class think of the drawing? X3
