Re: 2nd scratchboard golden eagle WIP

I really like this....and congratulations on taking foooorever! My only critique is that the edges between the shadow on the neck and bright spot is too harsh. I'd like a bit more graduation. Wonderful eye!!

Re: 2nd scratchboard golden eagle WIP

Nice finish! I do agree that the shadow is a little too sudden I think a bit of scratching then reinking back to almost black would do the trick...just an easier gradation to darkness. I'm anxious to see your next one! And If it makes you feel any better I'm a turtle too!

Don't take so long on the next one is what I think

Very nice work (agree about the shadow though - is it varnished yet?)

Re: 2nd scratchboard golden eagle WIP

You should spray it with a fixative to protect the surface... I use either the Krylon matte or one I really like is the Prismacolor Tufffilm Final Fixative also Matte. It is more expensive but I have had no spray glitches and globs stc with it. Its very fine and makes for a beautiful finish. Now I know some use a varnish but have never done that so will ask someone who has to give advice on that procedure.
