I’m participating in Illustration Friday; this week’s theme is “dip”. I used my last scratchboard to draw this entry of a penguin. I had a lot of trouble getting the white lines to look light and the black background to stay dark when uploading but I made it work.

This is the original photograph of the finished board:

This is the photograph edited with Windows Photo Viewer:

And this is my final submission using Editor:

I’m too broke to buy Photoshop and way too scared to get a virus if I download it from Torrent. In case you’re in the same conundrum, Editor is definitely a good option.

As for the drawing: It’s a little flat but I like it. I’m bummed that all my boards are out but I’m very glad I tried this new medium. Now it’s time to paint!
