The second stage

This is the plate I drew for making gradation. I took a photo before soaking it into acid tank. The dark part of drawing is not going to bite. It reverses the image and tones. I can post some test print soon...

Cool, thanks for the information, for those of us who don't work in this style.

Really nice work! Reminds me of the negative of a photograph. Also, the cast shadows seem like reflections in water, creating a terrific effect.

Hi joseph,
Thank you for the comment. I know it's complicated process.

Hi johnny,
You are right. It seems the negative of the photograph. So I have to think of the dark part should be white and...etc
While working the plate, it's confusing me all the time.
Anyway, thank you for the nice comment.
