My first ever attempt at scratchboard was a wolf in a second level art class in school, nose and eyes are the most challenging parts. How on earth did you get detail on the nose to look so textured?! I can only hope with time I become this talented :j

I have seen lots of realistic traditional art... some more popular and more complicated than this... but this one really comes alive. You are a very rare talent and one I must always look unto for inspiration. Thank you...

It's beautiful.
It's like he's thinking..."Are you gonna eat that? Really? The whole thing? All by yourself? I could eat some of it. Maybe I could just have a taste? Really?? You're just gonna eat that all by yourself... And I am just sitting right here...two feet away, Oh wait.. are your breaking off a piece for me?"

It's real. It looks so tangible... What incredible work. Beautifully captured expression and amazing detail work. Contrasts, tonal values and textures executed beautifully.
I keep wanting to reach out, just to make sure it's not real. Well done on capturing the essence and life-like qualities in this portrait. :love:

Your work is absolutely astounding. It's perfect in every way. Only when you get up really, really close can you be perfectly sure that it's not a photo.

Beautiful pup. His eyes hold a beautiful amount of expression.
