5x7 board of a squirrel from University of Michigan. We have a squirrel feeding club so all our squirrels are super fat :)

I live in Michigan and I never saw one of those at the feeder yet :) But I'd like to!
It's a beautiful 'squirrel' scratchboard though!

Oh my! You need to get that fellow on the treadmill!

One honest sugestion, I think maybe you need to scratch back through the color a bit, it is a little overpowering, especially there on his right hip(our left).

Overall, a fun piece.

You had me going on the squirrel part. Just seeing if we were awake, huh?
Can you pull the squirrel out of the background?

The feline squirrel is beautiful. The squirrelly squirrel does need some pushing and pulling of values to keep him rounded and to pull him forward out of the background, scratching highlights back in should do much of that.

Thanks :) I lightened up the fur around the edges, the squirrel stands out better now.
