Here’s an update on Oliver. Each time I start a scratchboard, I seem to like it more than I expect to. There’s such satisfaction in the stark white marks on black – the contrast is the most beautiful aspect of scratchboard.
It probably doesn’t look much different, because I’ve not gone much farther than the last update. It takes some careful planning to get the markings on the cat’s face right; those intricate stripes on the forehead are a big part of capturing Oliver’s likeness. One ear is also in place now. Starting to look like a cat at least. 🙂
Thanks for looking!
