    Red Wakes Up

    Not my usual style, so this was a bit of a stretch--lots of fun experimenting with this one!

    Looks like a woodcut. Makes the eyes jump out.

    Thanks guys! I was experimenting with a scratch board-like technique on my iPad. Need to perfect it, but I might try a few more this way.

    What a fascinating image. I agree that it becomes a bit about the lines themselves, which do an optical thing, but on the other hand, despite that I can very clearly see the subject and you did a remarkable job on conveying beauty and subtle emotion. It's alluring and intimate. And I would never before have thought one could have pulled that off in this fashion. Brilliant feat.

    Yeah, I can see where this is like looking at an engraving that has been colored really magnified. As a thought with the one you did, if you have all the black lines on a separate layer, you might be able to go in and work some of the effects like transparency and whatever which would give the same image a subtler appearance yet you would be using all the elements you have already created. So it's merely an adjustment which you could easily play around with. It may or may not work with all the settings. Maybe you could change the color of the line work to more matching of the local colors and keep the opacity at full. Lots of options. I do that sort of thing all the time, although I haven't done something exactly like this.

    Be that as it may, I am impressed. Well done you!

    Wonderful painting technique. I love it. It reminds me a lot of Monique Straub's Art http://www.moniquestraub.com/ . Similar but not the same. Thank you!

    Scratchboard is so easy and such fun on AR. This is very clever.
