Inspriration and Art

This is a picture from YEARS ago of me and my two little brothers. My little brother is all grown up now. He is 18 years old and about to graduate high school. I cant believe it!
So a while back I took this picture. I was playing around on a cheap photo editing software and made the shadows more prominent. I looked everywhere for that picture but I can’t find it.
Anyway, after I saw how the picture looked, all shadowed and what-not. I was reminded of a medium we learned about in an art class a long time ago.
I don’t remember the name exactly but it was something like Scratch Paper.
Its a paper that is Black and you scratch bits of it off until it turns white. Its actually kind of hard to do. Because you have to use a different train of thought. I’m used to working with a white paper and drawing the shadows with a darker medium like pencil or charcoal. Instead, this time I’m starting out with a dark paper and making the light part white and leaving the shadows. It was a cool experiment and I liked the way it turned out.

What do you think?
