Despite the medium used this looks very realistic. Nice job lass.

As well you should be. I bought some of that stuff once, but I still haven't touched it. Scares the bejesus out of me.

I don't get why this isn't more faved than other scratch boards. The obvious attention to detail and subtle scratching promotes the good composition.

good job!

And you should be prowd of it :wow:
This is extremely nice work, masterfully done :nod:
I like to check out others in the scratchboard community to see how they are handling the medium and I must say that you are very good :aww:
Excellent use of light and shadow and your extreme precision with stipulation alternated between values at a very professional level ^_^
If you have time, pleas stop by at my glory and check out some of my scratch art if, you would like =D
some good examples of my work include this one [link]
and my most favored deviation, the "Winter Pine Dragon" [link]

It took me a while... a week or two, but that's because I only had an hour or two each day to work on it as it was an assignment in a highschool art class. Thanks for the comment, glad you like it!
