Woodcut Printing

 It started with a pencil drawing, with intentionally blocky tones added with grey marker pens, and black details added with a brush pen.


I decided to make two tone prints instead of the three tones I used in the drawing, due to time constraints. That would mean two prints, one over the top of the last one, to create the final image.
For the second, darker print (or whatever different ink you're using), you have to cut away at the same wood block you used for the last prints, so you can't go back once you start cutting away for the next stage.
