Scratchboard is time consuming, but look at the result :congrats:

 :heeha: This was a trip!!!  :crazy2:     :2funny:   This may look a bit different than the other cats here... my sister's black cat (Oscar) kept insisting on posing for me by sitting on top of my ref. picture.  :knuppel2:   So needless to say there is a fair bit of Oscar in this my first attempt.

I do have a query Nolan. The trace paper I used had a few creases in it and left faint but noticible marks on the board. Silly me decided to try and wipe them away after I finished scratching the cat (on the board, not Oscar). I now have shiny sections on the board. Is there any way to get rid of them or is this one of those 'lesson learned' situations?  :doh:

Anyway, here is the crossbred PB & Oscar cat!

Cheers, Val

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Beautifull scratchboard cat, Val, Cat are so funny, they sure like to be right on your work or close for attention but they are so cute.
i see no marks on your pic. but maybe you can put black ink, but I have no idea what it looks like except for having done that with paper,  wax crayon and ink on top when i was a kid.

 :sweat: Whew, I guess my new lookers are working well  :coolsmiley:

Thank you much Mea & Susan. I'm looking forward to trying some more.

Danielle, it is rather odd. The marks show from any angle except straight on. The light plays tricks! Thank you for your nice comment.

 :thankyou: Bellarina, it really was fun....it actually did have some real cat hair for a while!  ;D
Cheers, Val

Val, you have done a fantastic job of this cat.  It sure was a fun one to do.  I dont know about removing the marks you have on it but i  had a problem when i stuck tape on mine like Nolan did. I was left with marks from that.
 Keep on scratching, i look forward to the next one.

thanks for a great class Nolan.The pen and pencil drawing courses made this drawing possible-couldn't have done this  without them.
