Hi this is my 2nd sb attempt. (Trying again after a few years.)
I wish I had started with and stuck with just horizontal hatching (like in the lower leg and foot) or at least with strictly one directional hatching per form. Instead I started by trying to make the hatches follow the forms and criss cross (like in painting,) but it started to look off or overworked somehow, even though the values wern't nearly light enough, so I'm trying to correct conceal/lighten the torso/ head with stronger, horizontal lines. Hopefully I can salvage it.
C&C welcome. For tools I'm just using the pictured pen knife. It's 8x10in Ampersand Scratchbord. Love this medium! It's more forgiving than I could have guessed. Love the amazing work in this forum too! Thanks for looking!
