Are you watching over me? by shonechacko Are you watching over me? by shonechacko
6x6 scratchboard colored with ampersand inks.

I like working on small boards such as these as I can finish it before I get tired of it. I will check it again tomorrow morning to see if any minor corrections needs to be done and then spray it.

I used fiberglass brush, a hobby knife and a scalpel to scratch it and used airbrush as well as normal brush to color it.

Reference photo is this great shot by Denise Soden

Here is a WIP

When I first saw this image, I thought it was a photograph.  Then I saw that it was done on scratchboard.  I had to go a'googling to find out what that was.  :-)  Amazing work.  Thanks for sharing.

Incredible. This goes for all your work; it's beautiful and I love it. I use references like you, I'd appreciate a few tips of how you shade or blend, and what (paint?) you used to colour it... it's beautiful and magnificent. Keep going, this is amazing :)

Thanks a lot! I don't mind giving tips at all.

For graphite and charcoal drawings I blend using a blending stump. I used to use a chamois for very smooth surface like faces, but I cannot find it anymore. The paper you use is the most important factor on how the shading works. I use bristol smooth or bristol vellum paper for most of my graphite drawings.

For coloring my scratchboards I use mostly ampersand inks. I have used acrylics and inktense pencils also in the past.

You can ask me anything else you want to know and I would be happy to help. Good luck!
