I did this in my sophmore year in Mrs. Wilson's high school art class. It earned a silver medal at Nebraska State Visual Arts Competition. I did it in ink and used pointillism (thousands of tiny dots). I especially like it because I'm wearing one of my favorite T-shirts.
This is a scratchboard portrait of my dog, Quincy. A scratchboard is a white board covered in black ink. By using special tools, you scratch away the ink revealing the white underneath, so it's like drawing in reverse. It's a difficult medium because it is almost impossible to correct mistakes. I love how doleful Quincy looks in this picture. He is a great dog.
