Great first attempt. I found that a nice soft coloured pencil will allow you to mark the surface of the board with breaking through to the underlayer. I look forward to seeing more!

I think it looks great!

I thought it looked very good, Then I read it was a first attempt at scratchboard ... so now it's even better! I've never had a go at one but I wouldn't have thought it was an easy subject as there's a lot of difficult tones to deal with.
