I posted a photo of this awhile back before it was complete. I did some more work on the barrel and finally had a chance to complete the other side.
VERY nice! How did you treat the background? Relieve, stipple or both? Inked?
Help me progress to Master Engraver:
Thanks. It's both relieved and stippled- and then inked.
I like the way you paneled the barrel Russ
Yep, Marty that was the first thing I noticed and thought was really a nice touch
A gun and a parachute have a common dynamic. When you need one nothing else will really suffice.
Looks GREAT Russ.
