We Picked Up The Shards by Andy-DeviantArt We Picked Up The Shards by Andy-DeviantArt
Title is: We Picked Up The Shards and Formed Them Into Shapes of Stars. Copper plate etching, bone black ink on Japanese Mulberry paper. This one has alot of scraping and burnishing in it to get the stars to glow like I wanted them to. It wasn't too hard to make, but it does take awhile to print compared to my other plates. It was also the first print I made of the star series but the 8th print in the series.

Instant favorite. Nicely done. Love the black-and-white. Lots of movement in this piece, without having a lot of interconnected shapes.

this is just amazing! im at a loss for words, the technique, the composition, the idea and the story forms a complete picture that is closed in itself but open to any viewer and any feeling someone is looking for.. the format you chose adds to the grat individuality of this piece, it really stands out from a lot of different pieces of art i layed my eyes upon in the past years or so ;) just amazing, is there any way of seeing a larger version, i feel like i'm missing tons of tiny details and wonders which would allow one to dive even deeper into this magical scene!

I can see how long it would take to print something like this with the amount of dark values in it. It truly is an amazing feat that you were able to print those dark values but maintain the glow of the stars. If I may ask, how big is the original image?
