I really love the mixture of different techniques in one project and got recently very interested in collograph.
It looks like, no one has any idea of printmaking, here in my area. So no supplies. I'll have to experiment with different stuff. I've ordered cardboard designed for book covers and handicraft knife.
And while I'm waiting the delivery... I promised myself to draw every day and report here to avoid stalling (not sure it's the right word). So here is my today's sketch.

And these are my first steps in drawing and cross-hatching, I'm not sure I do everything right.

This what I made today:

It's a magic bunny, but in pencil, it looks like a huge dog, so I decided to color him. My daughter gave me copic makers as a New Year present. I was happy. But I only have three ). They are expensive.

Yet, the colors look dull and dark.

I'm loving it! I should follow your lead in drawing everyday. I'm working on mixed media myself, ink and wash first attempt coming up. Got the ink part done.

I feel bad asking the meaning of expressions all the time. I feel foolish. :unhappy: I didn't quite catch the meaning of "ink and wash first attempt coming up. Got the ink part done"

And do you happen to know how to correct the mistakes in the thread's title and in posts?

Got the ink part done" Oh don't feel badly about the language mistakes, its all part of learning a new language. I think you're so brave to be writing posts in a second language. You seem like an amazing lady.

I had no idea what a collograph is, now I know, sort of. Anyway I fixed your thread title and edited your first post with the corrected word. I don't always have time for these sort of corrections but I found myself looking at this post again and decided to fix it for you.
