My second virtual engraving, this time it´s young Jane Fonda, actress and peace activist. Jane´s hair gave me a bloody hard time, next time I will try with Telly Savalas.

Finally, after endless tries, I have managed to recreate engraving style line art from regular grayscale images. It is a complicated process and my respect for old age engravers grew with every single "Undo"-command. By carefully placing lines of varying weight, scale, curvature and distance to each other an engraver was able to simulate color, surface, depth and dimension with striking accuracy. This art is almost totally lost today.
