Intaglio arts
Hello, people!
Long time no see!

Well, I'll direct to the point. In  I started a class in my university where I learned who to make chalcography (or intaglio). It's a technique to engrave using metal plates and press the drawings in paper.
I've learn two different methods to do it and here's some of the drawings I did in the class!

1) My first trying was using a dry-pen technique, so I went simple: just a face with a small scenario. This technique is the hardest one, since I don't have a good flow of the lines.
2) While I was doing this project I was playing Ori in the Blind Forest and how I loved the game! Inspired me to make not only one, but two drawings!
3) Since it's a metal plate pressed in a paper, everything is mirrored. So I tried to write "Ori" imagining how this would look lke in the paper. Thankfully It came out just as I imagined!
4) Here I used a technique called "aquafortis", where I use vinyl ink to allow me to make smooth lines, and also make use of references! Here I used a memetic "Link is not amused" image:…
5) The last drawing I made was Romeo, the Typhloion of Looweezah's Maktub Fanclub based upon an art she made ages ago.
6) Although the 5 was the last drawing, I left my favorite one to be the 6. For those who don't know, this is Maria, a major character from the Mother 1 (or Earthbound Beginnings) singin the Eight Melodies to the series' main villain. I was even able to make some shadows here!

Well, that's it! Comments are always pleased!

Ori belongs to Moon Studios
Link belongs to Nintendo
Romeo belongs to Looweezah
Maria and belongs to Shigesato Ito
