This is a personal piece I did over the course of a month. I’m really happy with the look I got in the end, however I know I can do better and I’m going to be doing some more pieces over the next few months. I found an image from a search of the Kaiju Slattern (I don’t have a link but full credit to the original owner of the image) and changed it to grayscale to use as a  reference. Then as I made the image on the scratchboard I changed some dimensions or details. The total size is 8 1/2x11 inches or 215x280mm. I used one blade and employed several different shading techniques and directions to get the look I wanted. I’ve also finally got some gold scratchboard and I’m trying to think of a subject for my next piece. So if you have any suggestions on a character/monster/vehicle/etc from a movie/game/tv show/etc let me know below or send me a message.(c) Tal96Please don’t use this image without permission.

THEY HAVE THE ACE ATTORNEY OFFICIAL MANGA IN MY LAW LIBRARY I AM CRYING.



Your honor, something is amiss here!
As you are probably aware, library materials are labeled with barcodes as well as a number to determine their location on the shelf, as per the Dewey Decimal System. The books just to the left of the manga are labeled, as are the DVDs just in view on the lower shelf. Look even further behind these shelves and you’ll see that even those books are labeled! 
Ladies and gentlemen of the courtroom, I invite you to take a closer look at the volumes that are, allegedly, part of this law library! Something is missing from the spines, isn’t there?

Where are the bar codes?!
This is a blatant contradiction! The OP is lying— these volumes cannot, therefore, be a part of this library at all! I propose that they simply brought these materials in for the sake of the joke!! 


Only focusing on one aspect and not the whole of the issue, are we, Mr. Wright? Typical.

Your honor, if you bring your attention to the books just left of the manga, you’ll notice there’s a book (the second to the left) that also does not have a bar code.

If you examine the picture even closer—particularly the DVDs below—you’ll see that they bear bar codes, but not on the spines. No, they have them on the back and/or front of the DVDs. Of course, this method of labeling and organizing isn’t limited to products of the film industry alone.

Therefore, I’d like to propose that it is entirely possible that the manga books do, in fact, belong to the library!


Wh-WHAAAAT?! You’re kidding!! 
(Shoot, he’s got me there… Better think of something fast! Something about the books that sets them apart from—
…! I’ve got it!)
While that may be true, you’ve also overlooked one critical error: the titles of the books! Whether or not your hypothesis regarding the labeling system is correct, these titles aren’t alphabetized correctly! What kind of self-respecting librarian would misplace such vital books? 
Well, Edgeworth?



While it pains me to have to point out something so obvious, I suppose I’ll make an exception for you, Wright.
Clearly, one look at the titles of the books next to the manga is a tell-all of this certain library’s less-than-stellar organization skills. None of the books are in alphabetical order, I’m afraid.

They could very well be alphabetized by author and not title, but it’s a little difficult to be able to decipher that from this single picture, wouldn’t you say?
Furthermore, the manga books themselves are in numerical order, suggesting some kind of system is in place, albeit not a very good one, if the alphabetizing is off.

At the end of the day, it seems like neither of us can draw a clear conclusion from this evidence alone. Your honor, I strongly suggest a recess in which we could investigate the library itself further.

I see the issue here very clearly.
Due to the uncertain nature of this case, we’ll have to postpone this decision until more decisive evidence can be obtained. The court will now take a 15-minute recess.

(W-wait, but I’m not—)


WAIT!!!

I’ve got some decisive evidence for you, pal!

We investigated further into the photo. Zooming in, you can see a label on the DVD case to the bottom left.

Photo Close-up added to the court record!


As you can see, pal, you can vaguely see the words “Of Toledo Law Library” on the label!

And, considering possibilities of the rest of that label, “University of Toledo" was the first to come to my mind!
A quick search on the University of Toledo’s Online Law Library Database revealed that there ARE the comics pictured in it!
Miles Edgeworth Ace Attorney Investigations volumes 1-4 and Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney volumes 1-5!

And there’s more! 
The section these comics are filed under is the “Law in Popular Culture" Section, which matches up with the titles on the rest of the books on that shelf: "Lowering the Bar: Lawyer Jokes & Legal Culture”, “Prime Time Law”, “Lawyers in Your Living Room!" and "Lex Populi”!
Not only is it in the right section, it’s also a documented part of the Law Library’s database!
How’s that for decisive evidence?

My first piece I did for this series of paintings was of Gogoat and while I liked it at the time I’ve found that the more of these paintings I do the more my brain tells me to go back to the first one and have another go. So here is my second painting of Gogoat. I’m really trying to use space in different ways with these pieces to produce striking results. If anyone has a pokemon they want to see me do then please let me know.

Here’s my Arcanine piece. I tried a couple of different ideas initially for this, but in keeping with my previous pieces, and my minimalist approach to art sometimes, I went with this. I having fun trying to reduce down the designs while still keeping them recognisable. I’m going to be going over some of the previous ones I did just to see if I can do anything differently. If anyone has a pokemon they want to see me do then please let me know.

The top suggestion I’ve received for pokemon to paint is for Arcanine. Unfortunately I couldn’t get the start I wanted for Arcanine so I did a different pokemon to get myself started, so here’s Nidoking. The next one I’m doing is Arcanine so look out for that in a day or so. Hopefully it will be as good as I hope it will be :)If anyone has a pokemon they want to see me do then please let me know.

It’s been a few weeks since finishing my Pokemon Sports Team logo project and I haven’t really progressed on anything new for it. I have taken a small break which I felt I needed so I could catch up on other stuff, but I need to get back into it. So while I’m working on ideas for how to progress I felt I needed to do something to celebrate finishing the logos. How to celebrate it? I’m going to be doing paintings/drawings of pokemon that I’ve used in the logos I’ve done. I’m not going to go in any particular order, and there’s a good chance I just won’t do some. I’m going to see how I go. So while I’m going to just be picking stuff at random, I’m also open to suggestions. If anyone has a pokemon they want to see me do then please let me know.
