Hi! I am currently taking a printmaking class, and one of our projects requires us to do a master copy of a drypoint piece, which basically means we find a dry point piece that we quite enjoy, and then recreate it to the best of our abilities. I was wondering if you would be alright with it if I used this piece as my master copy. I absolutely adore it and I think it would be a fun challenge to attempt to recreate. If you would prefer I did not, that is fine, just let me know, I'll understand.
I am taking a printmaking survey class and I am going to use this as an example of what I like about Drypoint art. You really used your shading and detail of scales to enhance your dragon. I did a drypoint in class and it really showed my lack of ability to draw! Nicely done!
Be careful with the direction of the lines, use them to give volume as enveloping the form, so they aren't meant to be straight but curved. Also, try to get more advantage of the space, you don't have to use a background to actually use the space, but there's a lot of emptiness for free. If you used a metal plaque, be sure to polish it better, as there are a lot of scratches in your print. If it was an acrylic plaque, the only thing you can do is clean and clean and clean the plaque until all that excess ink is gone.
