The Guardian by Gomis The Guardian by Gomis
I always forget to take pictures of my schoolwork..!
Some recent schoolwork from colored etching class.

Foo dogs! Because foo dogs are amazing. He's got elements of both foo dog and eastern dragons on him. Personally I really like how this turned out.
I have some different colored versions of this piece printed too - [link] [link] - but personally I liked this blue one the best.


Three plates used; etching and aquatint on copper plate.

Hnnnn this! I just love the way the blue things look and all them details! How big is the etching btw? This makes me want to do etching again (too bad I don't have where).

Hmmm, I don't have it on me right now... The width is about 30 centimeters.
Yeah, one thing about etching that sucks is that you actually need things like iron chloride to do it. 8<

30cm... that's pretty big, I think I only made one etching that big in university :'D

Also yeah, etching... why do you need a printing press to do it? (well, most techniques anyway)

Our teachers constantly encourage us to make bigger things. ;w;

Indeed... I guess the only things you CAN print without a press are things like woodblock and lino.
Even if I prefer to print those with a press too because I'm a lousy hand-printer.

I quite like etching even if it's kind of long and troublesome to do... But I like the way it looks. 'w'
