Krispy Wafer: You nailed the look you were going for. This definitely hits the "book I was forced to buy for a reading list" vibe right on. I think it's maybe a bit too spot on for me though and overall ends up being a bit of a negative. The result is a little monochromatic and I wish there was just...more. I dont know how to put it exactly. More color, or detail, or a gradient or something. It's well done, just a little too plain for my tastes.

Despair is what I was going for and despair is what I accomplished.

I had a more colorful detailed variant, but it just didn't quite work. I was working on something similar to Solenna's entry, but I couldn't nail the look like they did.

Itís horse time! Iím trying to teach myself woodcut printing and this is my first finished product. Itís messy and the lines are rear end, but lino carving is without a doubt the most calming thing Iíve ever experienced. Put on your magnifying glasses, turn on some Jim Croce and itís like happy little trees, but sharp knives.

That looks like a huge amount of fun.

It is, and it was surprisingly inexpensive to get into. The biggest problem is transferring the image onto the lino block. There are multiple ways to do it and the way I tried didn't really work, so I had to free hand about half, which is rough when the image is reversed.

I tried using a laser printer and acetone. It gave the faintest of impressions, which was enough for the basics, but not fine detail.

I'm going to try the method where you stick the laser printer image on the lino with wood glue and then slowly rub off the paper until all that's left is the image on the carving surface.

For wood your tools have to be really sharp and even then you can will be victim to the whims of the wood. But if you do want to do wood, use something like basswood or high quality birch plywood.

I was using a highish quality birch, but I'm still trying to figure out my knife technique and how to best integrate that with the v-gouge tools. I need sharper blades. That's partly why my lines were such rear end.

It was a fun theme topic. I enjoyed trying something different and I hope we never have another horse prompt.

Having good tools is key if you're going to do wood carving. If you want to do block printing, you can do most everything with https://www.amazon.com/PFEIL-Swiss-Made-No-15-V-Parting/dp/B0032YYWLE . I have one that I've used for years. A bigger scoop will save you time and a smaller v gouge will help with detail, but you can do detail fine with the one I linked if you use a light touch.

edit: it's key because blunt tools are most likely to hurt you and are harder to use.

Iíve got some good gouge tools, but Iím not sure if Iím using the right straight edge knife to score the surface. Any suggestions there or does it really matter as long as itís sharp?

I actually will use my non-dominant hand depending on the angle. I try to score the lines at a 45 degree angle away from the line and then gouge up to the line. When I do it well it makes a great crisp edge. I just donít do it well that often.

But itís neat to hear thatís a technique. I noticed I could sometimes get a better line with my left hand which was confusing me.

Sorry for the delay, weíve been out of town and like the old adage ďthereís always money in the banana shackĒ, thereís always drama on vacation.

Iíve been trying hard to think of a new prompt and think Iíve come up with hands and/or feet. Make some hands and/or feet. But not like an art class exercise. Design them wrong. Like anatomically incorrect. Something like someone saying theyíre all thumbs and well...being all thumbs. Or quadruple jointed. All I ask is that theyíre vaguely human looking and with minimal functionality.

Deadline for sign-ups is 7/15. Submissions by 7/22.

Just to preface, the entirety of my formal art training was Life Studies freshman year in college so that's the level of critical expertise you're getting here.


Creepy. I like the economy of colors and lines. This could be clipart and I don't say that in a bad way. Strong imagery, limited colors, easily scaleable/reproducible. I can see this being an illustration in a psych magazine article or children's horror anthology. The messy coloring works well for the subject matter.


I really like the line work here. I've never been confident enough to not outline most everything I draw so only using black on the shadows really makes this pop out. This feels like a book cover or a concert poster. It feels weird to compliment shadows in a drawing of a shadow puppet, but the shadowing is very good.


The frantic ink strokes and that one finger dragging across the ceiling are horrifying. This could also be a magazine illustration, but probably in a Christian youth magazine about the dangers of masturbation. This was the most animated of the entries and it does a good job of implying motion and a sense of panic.


If I didn't know the theme I'd have a tough time telling what this was. That's not necessarily a negative. This could be a tree you pass every day on your way home and then one day you realize what it looks like and you're thoroughly weirded out and breaking into cold sweats. Or maybe it's a gnarled dead tree in a field outside your window that appears to be getting closer each day. I like the shading. The whole thing looks very organic, which is probably helped by the physical media.


I can't tell if this is physical or digital. The warm tones and not so nice subject matter are unnerving. This is really making me uncomfortable, but I can't stop looking at it. The shading is great, especially around the toenails. There are a lot of different textures being reproduced here with only the color brown. The way the image fades away as we move up the body makes me wonder how twisted the rest of the person looks.

-----

Thanks for all the entries. Everything was very different in both subject matter and technique. The judging was close, but I still can't stop looking at Sigma 6's twisted feet. They're freaking me out. That's in part because of the work and partly because ankle injuries give me the willies. So Sigma 6 is our winner this ArtDome.
