False Freedom by AmaryllisHakatri False Freedom by AmaryllisHakatri
Finally got a decent print of this with white ink on black paper. Yayy. :) Definitely still need more inking practice, though. A thanks out to *Apocalyptic-Visions for much-needed inking help.


Printing block used was linoleum. Annd here's an image of the final cut block, for anyone who's curious: [link] The cutting was done back in February.

This was scanned in two parts, as the paper was pretty big. The kindasorta break in this isn't a flaw in inking, but rather from the two files being put together in photoshop.

Any crit would be greatly appreciated. :) I'm hoping to do more printmaking next year.

Aww, thank you. <3 I'm very happy to hear that.

It took a helluva lot of time. :P Spent a few hours straight cutting the linoleum block, with teeny-tiny knives. Yep. Quite happy with it, for the second print I ever cut.

I cut myself twice in the process, actually. :P They weren't too deep, though.

Oh. DID YOU SAY STABBING? 8D

Would I do that? :innocent:

Actually, it's not pointy at all. But you don't need to tell anyone that. :paranoid:

Wait. SO YOU MEAN THAT I SHOULD TELL ANYBODY IT'S NOT POINTY?

On the left wing, I can't see where it's bending or curving towards the camera. Nice job btw <3

There was a bit too much ink there and it went into the space, which is why. Happens quite often, s'what makes it so difficult to do, particularly with very detailed cuts.

Thanks. <3

I'm only a beginning printmaker myself, so I can't offer too much critique, but I love the detail you put into this.
