    I just finished this Alice Cooper. It took me along time. Not because it was a hard piece, I was just playing most of the time. Eventually I ended up with this. This is the first time that I have been successful with scratching in hair because I finally followed my own advise. There needs to be paint on the paper in order to scratch. Coloured water does not work. I like useing a #16 blade instead of #11. You can get so broad strokes with the #16 and they are not as springy as #11s.

    Anyway, this is on a 350mm x 250mm Schoellershammer 4G board with E'tac EFX and mostly Micron. Evolution also came out to play a few times. Except for the colour of the irises, the rest were all clean colours as manufactured.

    Looks fantastic! Nice job "just playing" ;) The hair does look great - really natural, and not over done. Bravo!

    "Got to be paint on the paper to scratch, not colored water" - That alone is worth reading! I can see that quote being used again. The artwork is great as well! Nice work Andre.

    Andre, do you have any work in process photos? I find especially the microphone a very captivating piece in this painting and would love to learn how you accomplish this.

    Thank you everyone.

    Sorry Franc. No WIP for the mike part. I just blocked in the whole mesh area in black, used white Saral paper to draw in the lines and then went over it with a paintbrush. Then just defined the parts that went over each other. then just added the colour shift and shadows. From close-up it is far from a perfect mike.
