Zeus-Linoleum Print by enchantma Zeus-Linoleum Print by enchantma
*This is NOT digital work!*
I carved out a slab of linoleum, rubbed ink over it, and ran it through an old fashioned printer (hurray for cranks!) I cut myself while doing this XD (I'm a natural spazz, thanks for asking.)
I'm working on a woodcut now, and it's no fun to carve =(
Please no harsh crits...This was my first time ever carving and printing...Just wanna prove I can do more than junky digital anime work XD
We had to choose a theme for our printing class, and I'm doing Greek mythology figures. Athena is in progress =D

Zeus
11"x15"
Linoleum Relief


I had no idea which category to put this in...

Lino print, cool! I've been forced to do them in school - took ages to carve, and we had to do about four layers of colour and as many prints as humanly possible using the one lino. Ergh.
Awesome design, looks good!

Wooooah~! I remember I attempted doing that once for art~! *--* I gave up so quickly because I am not good at carving at all. This is really, really incredible~! I love how you've done all the lines to look 'Greekish' or however you'd call it XD This is terribly good~! :)

It's nice to see something new, and Zeus was probably all like "Don't screw up my beard! Feel my wrath! *makes you cut yourself* Now cry like an emo!" ...or something like that (don't mind me, I just had green tea and I'm overly hyper)

Thanks <3 The beard was hard but the most fun to do =D
Haha yeah I stabbed my hand accidentally when my tool slipped while carving...it was kinda like:
O__O ouch!
-__- ok just a cut...
*sees blood*
O_________O AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

and my professor shows me this huge scar on his hand and told us to be careful...yeah, that helped.
