Disappointment by azraelengel Disappointment by azraelengel
Linoleum cut 8x10 block black and white print on Lennox.

Anyway, linoleum cut printing is when you take a linoleum "plate" and lino cutting tools and "scrape out" all of the areas you want to be white (or paper colored in this case). This one is only black and white and requires only one printing... Some lino cuts can have 7, 8, 9... Or infinite layers of color. That will be my next feat!

Oh, wow! It's so great because you can actually tell what it is! And you can actually see the shape of the objects!
Im doing a 3x4' linoleum cut of a flying shoe currently! But im sure it will not be as clean of a cut as this, since it is my first time.

Check out some woodcut prints and try to replicate the "shading" lines on those, but on a larger scale. That will help you.

I recently learned from a friend how difficult linocut images are and the many small accidents also she encountered :P So seeing the amount of detail in this piece makes me go WOW! it's a job well done :D

This looks great. The graphic quality it really beautiful, and the motion is excellent! I wish some of the facial features were slightly more defined, but overall, the mood of the piece really comes across. Congratulations on the DD!

I have a choice scar on my thumb from doing such projects in high school, would have been worth getting said scar, if the project I made came out half as good. :P
ANYHOO....I just love the contemplativeness of this and just the all around look of this character. VERY NICE :)

It is really beautiful, and it conveys the feeling in a simple way, but you can still very easily tell how he feels.

Man, from the preview I was thinking 'that sure does look like block printing... I wonder if she did that on purpose' and you DID, because it IS. I very much enjoy this, as I'm personally a big fan of large black and white shapes with smaller white and black bits in their respective opposites. You should definitely do more of these!

I really like the subtle crosshatching in the places that it matters, and the movement in the scarf. Really can't go wrong with a flowing scarf, I think.

Fantastic print - it looks so clean. Almost looks like scratch-/clayboard.

I'm really enthralled by these winter pieces you've come up with, done with the different media. It's like watching different branches of evolution.

This is really inspiring. It came out so well. The face is just beautiful. I'm impressed by the way you got the light and shadow. It really confuses me, trying to think in reverse. Did it take you long to do?

No, actually, not that long... I thought it would've taken longer than it had. It only took a couple of hours to carve out.
