Final Prints

Here are the final prints of my semester's work in my Intaglio class. I forgot how much better prints look on nice paper. My critique with my professor is on Wednesday afternoon. All in all, I'm really satisfied with how this semester went and like Wayne State way more than CCS.

Evolution of a Face

Here are the recent changes I've been making to the mouth. It's coming along nicely and it should be done relatively soon. Added a slight aquatint to the background and some details and shadows on the face which is just painting the nitric acid directly onto the plate with a brush to get sort of a washy effect. It is every bit as nasty as I hoped it would be and I still have time to take it even further. The last proof of the girl in her undies was just something I made to mess around but will probably develop into a real print if I have time. I will most likely use lace or fabric and transfer the texture to the plate via soft ground. Only a couple more weeks left in the semester, I have four papers to write, a sculpture to finish, and have to do an edition of one of my plates. The pressure is on.
