Done for an art class I'm in this semester; we were basically given a scratchboard and told to do whatever with it.
I did whatever with it, from this gorgeous reference, which all of you have probably seen about 50 times already.
It took 5 periods, or probably around 4 hours? Scratchboard.

This is a very effective scratchboard portrait. I really like how you captured the lighting.

This is incredible, great job! Love the contrasts and the angle (which I guess was due to the ref, but nonetheless). Lovely.

Yes, this is definitely one of my favorite mediums, and you've done well. :3 And... just 4 hours... :faint:

I've only done one once, and it wasn't bad (I guess I should put it up), but I'll have to do a new version of it sometime.

Holy crap the lighting in this is crazy, and I really love the texture. And the lips AAA I love how beautifully defined all the features are as well, how you've very much sculpted it so that it looks very 3dimensional~ Plus, the moodiness/quirky atmosphere is to die for :lol:
