I guess Victor influenced me because I certainly didn't expect to stipple the whole thing. I did get carried away and took too much off. I'm in the process of darkening him/her back up...there should not be that much "bright" skin showing and the fins should just be hints and light reflects.
C&C welcome,

Well, you surely did capture the drama Karen and I love it the way it is but I don't know much about scratchboard.

You mean the scratchers haven't made you a convert yet? It's fun!

Its just fantastic Karen. You captured a wonderful light on the head.
Go careful ....Try not to darken him too much. The dark background works as your darkest tone and he just pops out of the gloom at you.
You have such a good mix of all the tones at the moment. Wonderful piece:clap: :clap:
