First test of 3d engraving from a total beginner

This was done on draftboard so I know it’s going to look better on a hardwood. Also, likely I should use a thicker board than the 1/8. And the(my) original image…maybe needs to be less dark, less contrast…just experimenting.

Welcome to the forum. I look forward to seeing the next iteration of this project as this first engrave is beautiful. You are off to a flying start.

Very nice! Play a bit more with the black and white to get more depth!

Oooo, nice! If you decide you want to color it, I’ve found that colored pencils (especially high quality ones like Prismacolor) look really nice on Draftboard.
