This is one of my first attempts at scratch board. I have experimented in using different tools with the scratch board and ultimatly kept coming back to using an exacto knife with a #11 blade. Its what gave me the best results and it just seems to work best.
Yes this is a drawing of someone riding a dragon, No, it has nothing what so ever to do with Pern. I am one of those rare fantasy artists that has never read any of the Pern books, so I have no idea what those dragons (or Pern dragon riders for that matter) look like.
I'm pretty sure this is a far cry from any Pernesse dragons anyhow (I wouldn't know), but I've had people ask that about this image before.
