I responded to this in the Scratchboard forum its easy for me to become confused where I am these days. This is a better figure than your ink drawings with more time and better understanding of light on forms you will do well.

Re: Scratchboard

Theres some very nice reflections, especially on the thigh. If it was all as good as that it would be superb. Scraperboard, as we call it, is very diifficult to use, you cant go back, just like silverpoint

Re: Scratchboard

I agree with David that there are areas that work well (the thigh and knee) and other areas which work less so (nose is a little too far from the head and the feet are confusing). I also like the contrast between the hair and the rest of the figure. I thought you could erase by reapplying ink though I'm no expert. See here.

Youre right Nathan but it never looks the same. In fact I remember doing it as a boy, but as the article says, its very difficult to match the colour and you cant just paint the scratch. its just like those awful scratch removing brush paints for cars
