Scratchboard and Ink

I'd like to take a moment to thank Alannah Hawker :iconalannah-hawker: for letting me use her photo of Billy . She's a fantastic photographer so please check her out if you haven't already. Thanks Parabuteo78 for helping me figure out the thumbnail!

I finally have a professional photo of Billy! I'm updating my print shop now.

Thanks! Sometimes you just get lightning in a bottle, I kind of feel like that's the case with Billy. Keep practicing, you'll get there.
