Dry point portrait of Malik

About 9 x 7.5 inches, printed on Rives BFK.

This was my last project in the printmaking course I took with Eleanor Anderson. I carved it on a piece of plexiglass with a scribe, after having made a drawing from a photo. This is a long process and the printing part is as well, and you don't want to miss any steps or you wind up with a lousy print.
I'm pretty satisfied with this one, the first of 3 and most successful. It totally looks like Malik, although his muzzle is more concave and not so flat on the long part. Aside than that, yep, it's him, and he agreed to it.
