This artwork was created with the rotogravure technique. Therefore I had to evenly spread out black, wax-like paste on a polished copperplate. Then I scratched away the black paste with a really thin, fine needle. Thereafter the copperplate was etched in a acid bath. The waxed parts keep spared, the scratched parts becomes grooves. Then I washed away the paste and filled the grooves with black print colour paste. Now, the copperplate was ready for printing with a special machine. The heavy drum pressed down the copperplate into an absorbent, humid paper sheet, which soaked up the black colour. And here you see the result.^^

This is so old. 8D But I still love it.... old mangafied "Tailchaser's Song" fanart I did a while back... I wanted to do a fanart for that book so bad, but I suck at drawing cats. So voila, catboys. *shame* Anyone who's read the book can probably figure out who these three are. Even if the one in the middle is supposed to be fat, not bulky. And no, THE GUY ON THE RIGHT ISN'T KURAMA. Dx Thx.

It's wierd that I can get somewhat good mechas out while not being able to even produce proper face at the moment. I should've probably varied the depth of sword and broken buildings more. They look somewhat lined up.
