Fourth scratchboard ( cat ) - FINISHED

Ok, ok I promise to stop numbering my scratchboard attempts after this one lol.

Just before I start I just wanted to ask you great SB artists if you think this image has good lighting and detail in it for a scratchboard. I got it from the RIL by SweetHuia it is a cat, Jagr. I put it in black and white and upped the contrast.




It will only 12 x 9 man do I need to order some bigger boards lol

Thanks for looking !

I like the pose and the contrast. This will look outstanding on a black claybord.

That would be perfect. If you can pull it off (and I reckon you can), it'll be a great piece!

I thought it was scratchboard at first if that answers your question.

Coming along nicely!

That was probably Cathy (Crias) who did the title change.
