I can't give a ton of details at this point, so for now, here's a sketch, a few lil thumbnails, and two words: Salon Valkyrie.
A few people said this end result was a little dark and unexpected, but it IS a character I dreamed up in high school, and the only thing more dramatic than the me of the present was teenage me. Basically, it's meant to be an acidic, black slime type life form that's hollowed out a marble statue to give itself a more solid form. As it moves, the marble cracks and gives it a greater range of motion. Something like that!
I don't do printmaking often (mostly because I don't have a press, or access to one) but occasionally I'll get the urge to do a little linoleum printing because a wooden spoon is almost as good as a press for this process. Sort of. This first image is the digital sketch that I used to transfer onto the blocks.
And here we have the finished print in black and metallic gold. My only regret is that it's nigh impossible to digitally capture the glitter in it.
Potentially embarrassing but true, this is a redraw of what's more or less a high school OC. In original imaginings she had a top of some kind, and I briefly wondered if social media guidelines would require me to put little stars or something over her bits, but it looks like because this is a painting of a statue... I should be in the clear.
