Intaglio plate number two!
Our third project was to use three process, so I went with soft ground for my second process and aquatint. I love it for the sheer fact that it allows me to put texture into my plate. *texture whore*
The lovely one featured in this piece is Kaga, and yes, its a guy. For serious. It had been ages since I'd drawn Kaga, the last time I actually did something of him was back in 2005. Sooo he got a little bit of a revamp and some fancy new clothing since he is a brothel worker and needs to look the part. I think out of all my plates this one and one of the last ones I did are my favorites by far. It just turned out so well and much better than expected.
