ATC #1 for Atlanta!



I just finished this ATC for the ATC trade at the convention in Atlanta. Obviously, it's a tiger (at least I HOPE it's obvious).

This was done on a new support for me: Multimedia Artboard; this was the black board. It is much different to work on, even from sanded surfaces and Pastelbord. Lots of tooth that is impossible to cover up completely, I suspect, unless you use a watercolor wash first. I'll have to try that next.

It's, of course, 2.5" x 3.5" in size and I used Prismas & one coloursoft and one pablo. I hope to get at least one more done before I leave for Atlanta.

This tiger's face is impressive, Nancy. Looking forward to see a couple more ATC's, hope you find the time to finish them...

Brilliant stuff. ATCs really interest me and I need to look into them more.

Thank you Carolina and Marmsk. I did get the other two done, but forgot to get some shots of them before handing them off. It was great fun though and my fine art collection has now grown to 16 pieces!!!
