Yearning For Grace by dragonsong12 Yearning For Grace by dragonsong12
An etching I did for my printmaking class. On honestly, one of the nicest renderings I've ever made of the human body (was studying my anatomy book for hours to get this right) I think you all can see my obsession with wings here already, though. :)

The title is a line from a song by Five Iron Frenzy called "Every New Day" which I decided really fit what I was trying to show. For the record, this piece is not supposed to be about despair, though you may have to look at it a while to see why.

*bows* thankee much! I like to think that you're defenitely being honest here, considering that you say this is "better" than your friend's (since we usually have a bias - and rightly so- towards our friends) though a sketch of something like this could have an entirely different feel than a print, thankee much for the comment!

*cackle* if coffee makes you say such nice things about my art, then I suggest you drink it more often. ;)

thanks everyone! I'm really proud of how this one came out! :-D For the record, the actual print is 9X6, so not much bigger than you see here. But I really wish I had the opportunity to do more of these, this was really fun

The wings rock. They're really original, not like most the wings people create.

An amazing print! How big is this piece? I have been thinking of taking a print making class, and great prints like this only motivate me further to look in to it! :)

*stares at last comment* What's wrong with the proportions? They seem pretty darn good to me. *shrugs*

You know how much I like this one already...just showin' ya how much now!

It's nice.. your proportions are a little out of whack but hell all that needs is practice... it's got potential... ever thought of doing others like it?

The wings are definately pretty cool
