This is beautiful. How did you get the subtle gradations of the highlights? Burnishing?

thanx! this is a mezzotint.
it`s more like a scraping.
do you make prints as well?

Yep.
I do mostly hard ground with lots and lots of aquatint work.
I've always been intrigued by mezzotint... haven't tried it yet.

oh hey, you are one of us then! hahaha.
aquatint-mezzotint gives you a nice texture as well.
but the real mezzotint is pain in the ass...however it`s gonna look very nice when you finishe it.
you should give it a shot once `cuz you may like it though?

I plan to, but right now I don't have access to an aquatint box, or ferric bath. So it'll have to wait.

Wow, the tone and texture is phenomenal. So much vibrancy, and the subtleties in the flesh and the clothing. Fantastic.

I love the right hand, and the kimono has some great wrinkle effects.
Title: Travolta Cage?
