Default Re: Katherine's Contest Submission (Scrimshaw woo hoo!)

So I'm thinking "polar bear in snow" would be a good subject for my next project. Just kidding, but egads these black bears take a lot of dots! Actually the next project is probably a team of draft horses (dark colored horses, why do I inflict this on myself!)

Lest anyone think I get the appropriate level of darkness on the first go-round, I don't. Ever. And that's probably good, because it would be really unfortunate to make it too dark too fast, you can't erase this! I work on one little area at a time, building it up darker and darker til it gets where I want it to be. Maybe I ought to show that. Should I show that? That'll be like a mini-tutorial!
