Thank you maXine. I wish I had enough time to do more scratchboard pieces, I love them. But it takes so much time ! Thanks again for the nice words.

Thank you for the nice comment. I will have to do another scratchboard piece one of these days. By the way, I love your "Paint the sky" piece. Smile

Coming from the creator of a pair of unforgetable vampire/bat hybrids, this compliment makes me very proud. Smile

Thanks a lot Rita. Tell me, when you have a moment, send me an email about what bothers you with the face. I would very much like to get your opinion on it, it can be helpful for future pieces. See you. Smile

Wow ! Such a nice comment from you Matt, it is an honor, really. I am a great admirer of your work as you already know. Yes, it is quite a stressful technique, due to the unforgiveness of the medium. Small corrections can be made with black acrylic, but only on very small scratches, so indeed, it requires that one thinks a lot before "drawing" any line. I wish I had thought more myself before drawing some of the lines in this piece: I have strong regrets over several areas.

how you do this is beyond me. It's fantastic that you can achieve such a great affect with just simple lines. Going wrong must be a nightmare but I guess that's the challenge. Well impressed!

Thank you Cris. I could not help but post a close-up too, to make even with Vlad. Smile Sort of a gender equity thing. Smile
