Chalk Flower by bulletinthegun Chalk Flower by bulletinthegun
Yeah the title sucks but that's what it is.

I did this piece a while ago - last year - so I don't remember exact details although it probably took a couple of hours and I used a chalk pencil.

I increased the contrast a bit in photoshop and made it greyscale as my scanner made the black paper too light and a bit blue. First thing submitted so comments are welcome.

pretty cool. i think it would be better if you'd smudged the white together though. it would give it a more complete look.

this is gorgeous. two questions. 1) what kind of chalk did you use, and 2) did you use charcoal, or just chalk...? you captured the light wonderfully!

Well technically it wasn't really chalk it was a white pastel pencil thing but it's basically chalk. The pencil that I use is by Derwent and it's easier to control than a stick of chalk but it gives the same effect. And I didn't use any charcoal on this, just some black card.
