I like it.

it has very interesting texture, what kind of lino did you use?
kazenokibou Featured By Owner May 13, 2011
I think the texture is from the paper, not the lino. The paper I used was some kind of art paper with lots of fiber in it.

Beautiful! Wonderful This is... just... amazing! You rock! You make such wonderful lines!
westwardcloud Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2006
if you don't mind my asking, what method do you use to keep the two linolium blocks lined up so the lines match the colors...
kazenokibou Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2006
Like how did I carve it out like that? I think what I did was a phototransfer of the original sketch to both of the linolium blocks... it's been a while so I can't be sure, but I think that's what it is.
westwardcloud Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2006
oh. i may be working with more crude methods, but after you've made the blocks and you're ready to make prints, how do you keep everything aligned?

[link] is something i made recently and i wanted it to be rough and off center, but i'd like to know how to keep it together.
kazenokibou Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2006
I used the same sized blocks so I just aligned it that way... I think I had two sheets of wood that came to a 90 degree angle, and I put the blocks against it. I think that's what I did, but it was awhile ago so I don't really remember. ^^;
westwardcloud Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2006
ahh :P i'll probably just have to come up with a reliable technique to align the blocks.

I thouroughly enjoy your print. Especially the figures. However I have trouble seeing this as only as a two board print. Did you use a special kind of ink, or a reduction technique on one of the boards?
kazenokibou Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2006
I just used a print ink thingy. The first board is the black outlines, and the second board is the yellow part and the red part. I used two different coloured inks on the same board. Some of my prints, you can clearly see those two colours mixing.. ^^;;
Sei-Tenshi Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2006
Wait, so did you draw this or is it a photograph? *confused*
kazenokibou Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2006
This was done by me (print making, more then drawing) but I took a photograph of it since it was too big to fit on my scanner.
Sei-Tenshi Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2006
Ah, I see. Amazing!

This is a very, very beautiful image. I love that it has an almost aged look, while still managing to look new and fresh. You are so talented, that it is mind-blowing.

Oh wow, this is amazing. I must add to favs.
aimel Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2006
Hey this is really well done, when no-one knows nowadays how to do lino-art.. i see you added the black-colour board after the red and yellow one, really good idea..
I somehow thought you used wooden board and almost dropped my eyes, how did you manage to make it so clean, but then i read the text again ^^;

What sized boards did you use?? Even if it was linoleum-boards, this is still really carefully made, so you must have used pretty big ones, definetly bigger than A5 size.
soltian Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2006  Professional General Artist
Wow, this is really incredible..what you've done with the color pallette and the smooth lines amazes me, the setup and harmony of this piece are just amazing.
LiL-Miss Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2006
Wow! i really like this, its very pretty... i love the colours and textures! Great work!
SakuraPedals Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2006
I really really like this <3 Especially the way the texture adds to the picture^0^ Not only that, but the picture itself is wonderful. It's rare to see this style of art around Deviantart methinks, and so seeing this really adds a new taste in art for others^^
