Look Into My Eyes

This is my latest scratchbord. It's a 5"x7" on Ampersand Scratchbord. I am using a #11 Exacto knife and a kneaded eraser (for removing the white transfer lines).

I have included a few photos from start to where I currently am in the process.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

The eyes are probably going to be the last thing I do. Right now I am working on the complex fur pattern on the cat's nose. Since I work in great detail, I need the fur pattern to be correct or the whole picture will just look ..... wrong.

Into The Light

This is my most recent piece. It's scratchbord multi-media. I decided to try to add color to his eyes and used Prismacolor colored pencils to do it. I am really enjoying working with Ampersand Scratchbord!
