Hi again,
haven't posted in a while, been busy with school and a nasty virus, haven't been able to get much done.
I did this late-August, early-September. Photo's from the reference library, but forgot to look up who provided it, thanks to whoever did! Lovely shot.
9"x11" approx.
Any and all C&C welcome

Andrea

Sorry for the flash/glare, couldn't get a better shot. I'm not good with cameras. It's not so stark-white in real life, much softer.

Andrea:
I can easily see past the glare you mentioned and like the way you've done his fur and his expression. :clap: :clap: :clap:
Wondered what surface you used? Essdee or Black Claybord??
Hope you'll be posting more of your scratchboard work on the Forum!!!

Thanks for commenting Obedec and Bertoni.
Bertoni - the surface is black clayboard, I forget the brand but it isn't the popular one that I see most people working on, it's a smaller one that my local art store carries.

Great piece, great work. Didn't know there was another brand of clayboard.
