Silence by railrunnermiranda Silence by railrunnermiranda
My illustration project for "Monster in Me" theme. We draw our fears. For years I've had a big problem with shyness. It sometimes holds me back - almost as if it is some creature holding my mouth shut...

Yes, this is a self portrait - one of the rare few that I do lol. I love scratchboard, it's probably one of my favorite mediums to use. 2012.

Very nice. Last time I tried scratch board I drew this mutated badger. I was aiming for Ralph Fiennes

Wow.... this is pretty amazing! Even the most talented artist at my school is not as good as this (And I go to an Arts school, so that's say something)!

Great fur, very powerful piece. I know several people who are shy, and they certainly can relate.

MOTHER.. OF GOD ! This technique is SO original and perfect, and the face, and the hands, and the veins and the hair and the everything. This is SO well done, I'm glad I decided to take a closer look, otherwise I would've missed this brilliant piece. I hope it'll get the appreciation it deserves. The whole piece is so completely great!

I appreciate this !
Thank you for existing.
