Ah I so love all the texture of the lines and the details and shading, it's very moving!

You are very skilled at drawing fur, or whatever it may be that covers the body. I know that is low praise for art like this, but it was all I could put into words at the moment.

Thank you for commenting at all! The stuff was fun to draw. Sometimes mechanical or repetitive processes are very enjoyable.

I agree. I enjoy drawing feathers as well, with that strange repetition.

Thank you. One of the reasons I got into etching is because I like how it makes me think about lines.

Yeah, same here. Lines just really fascinate me.. I'm still working on attempting to create lines that vary in thickness in my etchings..
Reply

Depending on what kinds of qualities you want your lines to have I recommend the following:

Engraving Burin - a slightly awkward tool but capable of beautifully clean line variation. See Durer or Schongauer for examples.
Echoppe - useful for line etching and can mimic a lot of engraver's marks. (I made my own by belt sanding a thick needle at an angle and putting it into a pin vice.)
Sugar lift/aquatint - not very clean, but you can get some great lines that will do most of what your brush will do. Not great for very thin or delicate linework. See my pixie prints: one, two, three.
Drypoint - easy to use and intuitive with pressure sensitivity. Difficult to wipe sometimes. See Rembrandt's drypoint etchings.

Good luck!

I can't even say why, but this made me smile real big, when I haven't smiled at all in too long. :+fav:

I've smiled like this--> :iconsmile--plz: ... But not like this--> :icongrin--plz:

And this art caused that second kind of smile. Great job, ~Kyngdok

nice etching, man!

do you do lithography?
Reply
:iconkyngdok:
Kyngdok Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2012
I did a lot of lithography in school, but I don't have the equipment for it right now. Lithography is pretty great stuff and I could probably get back into it, given time and supplies, but I do love etching copper.

For sure. Etching is really therapeutic; although I love me some woodblock/linoleum printing.

Relief printing always feels like a magic trick or a bizarre strategy game to me. I've learned to like it more over the years, but there's just not enough copper involved.
