Harry Otter by rainyXskyz Harry Otter by rainyXskyz
May I present to you.... HARRY OTTER! *insert hp theme song here*

Finished for the Scholastic Art Competition with 42 minutes to spare! I think its my finest procrastination job yet.

So, this is my third scratchboard, this time of a lovely otter whose photo was taken by B-F-G [link] (thank you!)

I hope you like it! I nearly stabbed myself with the exacto knife midway through and cursed myself and existence multiple times, but here he is, finished, after about a year, Harry Otter!

Enjoy. (:

Harry Otter by *rainyXskyz. The detail forged from this artists hand is truly worthy of praise. ( Featured by KovoWolf )

Critique by AliciaMarieCreations Dec 14, 2010, 5:02:21 PM
I had to give this all five stars. This is so incredible. I love the details first of all, you did a fantastic job there. I also love the idea - it is really unique. The way his hand fades into the black in such a contrast-y way is really interesting as well and his wand looks great. You paid so much attention to detail to create something realistic yet not something that can really happen in life. I also love the otter's expression, something about it just looks great.

You seem to do a great job with scratchboard, keep it up! I love it :D

Many months ago, I promised you a critique - here it is! This is absolutely fantastic work and I can not believe it has just 160 faves - in my opinion, it deserves at least a week on front page and double Daily deviation :D

I am not into this sort of art, so I do not really feel like giving you real critique, which means advices what to improve or so. I just want to tell you, that I admire the effor you put into this work and the talent you have in general.

I hope many people will find this fantastic piece of art through this critique and they will apprecite your art with attention you deserve!

How awesome! Love the title. I have a graphite I did of an otter reclining titled "Otter Take a Break" and people just don't get it. Too obscure I suppose. But I digress, very nice. I am in awe of what can be done with scratchboard and hope your fingers stay intact so you can continue to create more of these sort of fab pieces.

This is AMAZING. The lines are so delicate and intricate, and I can't believe I never made the Harry Potter - Otter connection when I first saw this. I also thought he was a conductor. XD. His expression is hilarious; he looks like a furry old man with glasses!

The board starts out black, and you scratch away to reveal the white. ;) Hope that helped.
