The Next Move

The deep archives, part 3.

Gold scratchboard.

The Next Move is another variation on reverse drawing. This piece started out as an all black sheet of scratchboard. I used various sharp tools to scratch away at the surface layer to reveal the gold color underneath. This concept is similar to what I did with Storytelling and Keep Pushin’ – I used tools to reveal highlights and define the figure’s face and features, while using the black base color as my darkest value.

Reflection and Response.
