This is my grand daughter Amrita, She has taken to Scratchboard art , doing scratch work during sparetime amidst her studies.She has just turned 16.She has participated in competitions for juniors and won awardsfor her Scratchboard works.She is an SSA member in ISSA.Though not a member as yet in Wetcanvas she has her favorites in the WC SB Forum and is very keen to meet them at the ISSA show in NC this month.She will accompany my son,Krish, also an SSA member.
I did this on black Ampersand board using X-acto11. Size 11x14".The reference photo shown here was taken by Krish in 2012,
I would welcome any suggestion or correction needed for improvement.

I posted a reply... That went something like. Beautiful Granddaughter and scratchboard! Classic Venkat.

You might have a look at her right eye. There doesn't seem to be as much of an arc to the iris, as the photo.

Thank you Jon
Thank you Rodman for closely examining this . My son had mentioned something similar to what you have pointed out . I made some changes and had posted the revised version in FB two days back . I did not post it here which I do now . Is the update OK . I did not see your earlier post .
