Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter First Scratchboard - Figure

so this was my first scratchboard attempt other than a couple of experiments with materials. I took a large scratchboard to a figure drawing/painting session I attend every week. Its a nice figure session because it gives time to work on a long pose.

Feel free to critique. I mostly used steel wool on this one, with a couple of other tools from a scratchboard tool set.

Re: First Scratchboard - Figure

This is better than some of your ink sketches something is working well for you with this one. It does looks like a photo negative image rather than a positive one, give more thought to light effects for future works. You seem to have chosen unforgiving mediums to learn figure drawing from life do you have a tutor or are you freewheeling your education?

Thanks for your comments. Yes, I seem to gravitate towards unforgiving mediums. For me anyway it keeps me from overworking an image... I like a bit of that "searching" for the image to show up in figure sketches. And, I like a process that add's it's own little bit of chaos.

I've taken community college art classes in figure drawing and now mostly just attend a couple of figure drawing sessions every week.

Well done. I used to use white charcoal on black paper for at least one pose per session. Concentrating & delineating the light instead of the shadows seems to cleanse the pallet, so to speak.
