Twozebrasarestaringatme by evilllama-polly Twozebrasarestaringatme by evilllama-polly
I live a 20 minute walk away from a zoo, and there's a public footpath that goes straight through it, so if you're lucky, you can get quite close to some zebras and giraffes. So I took my own reference photos :)

The zebras seemed very keen to have their picture taken.

Scanners hate pencil, dammit.

Tools: pencil, white ink

Brilliant! ..I honestly thought this was a photograph. I bet it looks amazing up close. Youve captured their character so well, well done..

Just a thought... about scanners hating pencil, thats their poor dynamic range. What If you were to take two (or more) scans, a brighter one and a darker one and merge the files in Photoshop (like photographers merge two or more exposures). This would greatly increase the dynamic range and should produce great resuts. It might be worth trying, after all, its a shame to produce such stunning work and then to be let down by your scanner...

Yeah I'll have to try that, as long as I can adjust the "exposure" on my scanner.

Sorry if this is a repeat post, the internet is playing up.

One of them is a leg of the left hand zebra... I had to improvise a bit there since I couldn't take any pictures that showed their legs clearly!

Thanks :D
