This is an illustration for my Scientific Illustration class. I thought the skeleton was uber cute, so that is what I decided to draw. The skull and the neck was the main part I was most interested in drawing, but I also put a bit of the back-bone and wing in the background. This was my first time using scratchboard and I’m undecided if I actually like the material or not.  The one below was the practice on a tine 4″x4″ piece, that’s just the skull.  Both methods are a rough version of cross-hatching.
