Re: Himba Beauty WIP

Lorna, I really enjoyed your explanation of your technique. I'm like Patrick, too heavy handed to scratch so lightly, (I'm sure that he WILL get better at it but I'm not so sure about me, I'm also a bit impatient.) I need goals though. Thank you for sharing that with us. For me it's like the short guy reaching for the can on the top shelf, if I jump at it long enough I may eventually get it to fall off and clunk me on the head.

Re: Himba Beauty WIP

Most of the time I find it difficult to find the right words to describe your scratch board work, or how I feel about it. So at this minute the best I can do is, exquisite, materful, and brilliant work. Thank you for your explanation on how you create the beautiful, smooth skin that you consistently do. You and Diana are on the top of my Scratch Board Hall of Fame list.

Re: Himba Beauty WIP

My gosh Lorna you do beat all!

That is the most amazing skin I've EVER seen! And after having just finished my struggle with Miles and Raaya you make it look easy AND with a much superior result!! When can I come to your place and scratch with you again!? Seriously you blow me away all the time!

Re: Himba Beauty WIP

Update.

I'm glad my little demo made sense to you all and I hope it helps.

Harold...that was funny, but I knew just what you meant!

Well...I was having the hardest time getting that nipple to work out but I think it doesnow...let me know what you think (good OR bad)...needs a bit of hi-lighting. I'm working towards the other breast now...I have scratched and re-inked and now rescratching. I can't wait to be done the skin and get on with the (to me) icing on the cake...all that detail.

Re: Himba Beauty WIP

Now I'm speachless, but it looks just like the reference photo. So that's a "good". Exquisite work, this is going to be a beautiful board when you are finished.

Re: Himba Beauty WIP

I'm with Mark, I'm speechless. It's probably for the best anyway after that last outburst. Sincerely though I can't even start to understand how you get the effects you do.

You should see mine............hang on, maybe not

I think I was lucky getting some really good photos of this girl but I'm deadset sure you are improving on the references because you are adding drama to them. I was going to do some Himba scratchboards and I'll bet others were too, but you aren't making it easy for us
