Having fun giving new life to my artwork

Yep it’s wood! LOL All drawings originated from pencil drawings. :slight_smile: Thank you all!


#12

Those are gorgeous! Nice job!


#13

Beautiful! Did you have to create a vector file from the image, how?


#14

No I just scanned the drawings then engraved them onto the wood. Pretty simple, really.


#15

Wow, your drawing skills are through the roof!

How long to engrave?
Settings?

I want to say about 40 minutes on each. The engrave settings were set to full, 1000 speed @ 255 passes. I also did a white Arabian that I drew and it didn’t turn out the way I would have liked. I didn’t have enough room to play with the contrast with the horse already being white so if you choose to do anything that is already white, it’s best to get the background as dark as you can get it so that it brings out the details in the white subject otherwise it will blend into the background and won’t look as impressive. It will look washed out.
