Gigantic Woodcut (In Progress)

Gigantic Woodcut (In Progress)

So, this is the woodblock that I am working on right now. I did a photo transfer of the image using some Blender markers. I used a power carver to carve away the negative space. I will probably go back over and take away some more. I want the background noise to be there, but not overwhelming. The transfer stage took about an hour, and the carving thus far has been about 4 hours. The size is 22×30.
