Samoyed Scratchboard

SammieI have been commissioned to do another pet portrait in scratchboard. This one is of a beautiful Samoyed named Sammie. This is an 8″x10″ drawing, so far I have used a carbide scribe and a scratch nib. I still have a long ways to go but so far she is coming along quite nicely.

“Sioux” Scratchboard Finished

English SetterI have finished my latest scratchboard drawing of Sioux. To scratch this portrait I used a carbide scribe, Scratch Nibs, a scalpel and a fiberglass brush. I colored it with Ampersand Inks.

Scratchboard in progress “Sioux”

My latest scratchboard is a dog portrait, of a¬†English Setter named Sioux. This scratchboard is an 8″x10″. I have been using a carbide scribe, Speedball tips, and a scalpel for the scratching to this point. I will be adding at least one more layer of color with more scratching before I call this piece done.
