8 by 10 inches, scratchboard

This is my very first attempt at scratchboard, and I love it! It's much easier than I thought it would be! Once I got past the ohmygoshIcan'teraseandeverymarkispermanentwhatamIgoingtodo moment, I really enjoyed myself.

Anyway, this is a portrait of my cat, Odin. I tried to capture that fascinated look in cats' eyes when they suddenly freeze and stare at something in the distance.

I love it, scratchboard is so much fun. (I wind up crouching in my room and turning into cave-dweller because I don't want to leave till I finish...) Anyway, you're lines are great and nice to look at. :D
