Hileva the Sphinx

This was my third silkscreening project. Utilizing a Sphinx with a pretty basic 3-4 color set-up (blue, yellow, magenta, and a light overtone).

 The digital illustration shows the intended colors.

As you can see, the colors didn't match perfectly with the digital guide like my previous attempts. But nonetheless it looks great.

 This has 3 colors overlaying each other with a very light overtone that is barely seen on top.

These were the various stages of the silkscreen process and the combination of the inks once overlayed with each other. 2 color combinations of blue, magenta, and yellow.

Blue and Magenta made Purple.

 Magenta and Yellow made a light Orange.

 Yellow and Blue made Green.

And these were some of the accidents that happened when I wasn't paying attention to what I was doing... Kinda cool-looking abstract prints.

 It's kinda cool where the colors overlapped creating new colors and darker tones.

The overtone on this was a bit more noticeable, but the screens never lined up.

I'll eventually sell the good ones in an Etsy shop or something along with the others.
