how did you do the shading on the figure? It is all aquatints and burnishing?

The content and the details in your content... all awesome. But there's something in the way you illustrated the night- the way it pervades the entire drawing- that really draws me in.

O elbereth, this is cool!

Dude, this is amazing! Only recently I've started with drypoint etching (is that the name in english?) and did a couple of exlibris, but abolutely nothing like this!. I haven't started with aquatint yet, but nevertheless, this makes me so inspired. Amazing job, I love contemporary artists who still work like this. :+fav:
