    Default You'd Prefer an Astronaut (a process thread)

    I've been working on a small series of art prints with astronauts as the subject. Here's the latest one. It's actually really similar to the other process thread I posted. Enjoy.

    I started off with a few rough sketches.


    Here is the completed drawing on my light table.


    Transparency and color separations on the light table:



    After this step, I coat the screens and let them dry. Below is a shot of the first one being exposed with a 500 watt halogen.


    Wash out > dry > sleep.
    Then I get my registration tabs in place and tape off the first screen.


    Here is the first color.


    Second color, split fountain: red violet to light yellow (the red violet is slightly metallic)




    Test print for the final color:


    Final color:


    Then it was reclaiming time. I've still got to trim the prints down and sign them. Now that I'm looking at it, I probably should have done a fourth screen... maybe some light blue shadows or something on the figure.

    Now I'm off to buy groceries!

    Thanks for the kind words!
    I just posted it in the classified section. Now I'm going to draw something other than an astronaut. Ha.
