Castle by ~Netdog shows complete mastery of lino printing - clean, precise and even lines that look more like a screen print or even vectored lines. A beautifully crafted print. ( Suggested by kangel and Featured by Mollinda )

Beautiful! I absolutely love the white outline around the sakura and the bird and the general contrast between the first plane and the second!

Very nice! I had the opportunity to visit Himeji in 2007, and this print really captures the essence of the place for me.

Hii! I've currently really gotten in linocutting and printing! When u say 3 layers, do u mean u have basically carved all the details into the lino already, and then u apply the ink one layer at a time? :)

Hi. 3 layers usually means 3 different colors/blocks.
I actually work reductive so this is one block(lino), 3 layers if that's what you are asking.

I basically carve the first layer out, print, and then do some additional carvings on top of it and then print the next layer with darker color usually. And continue the cycle until you get the finished print.
With reductive I believe 2-5 layers will work good.

This is wonderful.
Can you explain how you did that? Like, very briefly. That'd be amazing to know.

This is a linocut print, which is one of a popular relief printing technique that you carve linoleum, apply ink and print it with hand-operated press.(you can hand print it too)

you can use multiple lino blocks, I used only one.
I printed the pink layer 1st, then light blue, then the darker blue on top of each layers.

let me know if you got any more questions.

craftsmanship is always under estimated but it has a big impact on the finished piece.
Especially in traditional works. For example my prints, even the image is amazing, if you find dirty finger prints on the paper or if the paper wasn't trimmed clean, it will reduce the quality I believe.

Thank you for your wishes and it is my pleasure if you enjoyed my works.
Happy art-making!
