Thanks, Kat & Jenna!

Most of the scratching is done on this one now, although I do need to put some more light in his face and work the area around the whisker spots better. Then I'll color it and add the whiskers.

Re: "Down on the Farm" Show - WIPs

Thanks Kat, Margaret & Harold!

I got impatient and had to start coloring. I wanted to see how it would look. I was worried that I'd screw it up and yet, I didn't bother trying it on a scrap board. Nutty, I know. But I like where it's going in the few spots where I've added color (collar, eye and his adorable liver-colored nose). Now that I've taken that that little side trip, my curiosity is satisfied and I'll finish the scratching, then scan it.

Re: "Down on the Farm" Show - WIPs

Thanks, Allan! Yep, sometimes you just gotta take a little detour.

Now he's all scratched, except for the whiskers. I used the Derwent Inktense pencils to color his eye, nose & collar. I kinda like it this way, but I do want to color the rest of him. He's a beautiful palomino color with a white blaze, throat and chest. His ears are a deeper color. I'm totally biased, but he really is a handsome boy



Here's a close-up:

Re: "Down on the Farm" Show - WIPs

Thank you, John & Diana!

I've colored the sunflower (with Inktense pencils). It certainly changes the look from the crisp contrast of the black & white, but I like it and I think it will appeal more to the general public also. As scratchers, we can appreciate the beauty of black & white, but I'm not so sure everyone else does.




Having said that about bw vs. color, I'm going to hold off on coloring the rest of Arrow. I really like it the way it is and it took on a life of its own and made me go more detailed than I had planned! I'll color the border collie (since I over-scratched parts of it for that purpose) and continue with the rest of the series before I decide what to do with Arrow.
