Long time doodler; first time poster.
Scratch art isn't my forte, but this is a commission piece so I don't have the luxury to change mediums or drop it. I feel like I lost my sense of direction -too much detail in the grass and fur, negative space is ugly (thinking of fixing that with clouds), and I can't achieve atmospheric perspective on the tree because the becomes busy itself after removing the black. Tried fixing these problems several times, but the white clay is starting to wear out and difficult to cut. I just need a comment or two to push me in the right direction with this drawing. Thank you so very much with the help.
