I started a new Etching project depicting indigenous Filipinos. I used old photos of Igorots for reference.
I was pretty pleased of how this came out. I made the heads bigger on the etching
When I sketched these out, I fully intended on inking right on top of them. But I really liked how the sketch came out, so I inked over a tracing paper.
I liked how intense his eyes came out
I really liked how the tattoos serve as great details to the piece. I'll post the plates and Etching prints soon. I started the male and the prints came out great.
I ended up altering the face a bit on the etching plate as the eyes/ nose got wonky
This is kind of a departure of what I usually do, which is pretty cool. I also feel like I'm getting the hang of using a brush pen.
I made the jewelry and tattoes different color as a guide for myself
