Death in a Field by thirdred Death in a Field by thirdred
This was the last woodcut I did (a couple years ago) after being inspired by Bergman and mildly debating making a set prints playing with tarot themes.

Your style is inspiring! I'm reminded of the old woodcuts circa 16th century :)

Sorry, i forgot about my deviant page. Woodcuts usually take me a week or two, depending on detail. This one was a bit bigger and swirlier so I think it took a month.

I can tell you one thing, if you didn't know yet, this wood cut exactly matches a "Discworld" book written by Terry Pratchett about his particular characterization of "DEATH." For that reasona and skill show here :+fav:

I wasn't aware of that, what book was it? I originally designed this woodcut after watching "The Seventh Seal" and was playing around with the idea of doing a series of prints inspired (but not literal) by tarot major arcana. Thanks for the comment!

"DEATH" is a character in most of Pratchett's Discworld books, just like it is a reality on any world I know.
This is a beautiful woodcut. I wish it would show up in my 'sit-back' slide show. I'm puzzling over it now.
Ah...Silly me. I forgot to actually hit the "Add Favorite" bar before. Sheesh.

Excuse one more comment:
"Reaper Man" is the title of the Pratchett book where "DEATH" is seen often in a field like this woodcut shows.

Wow, I just love every line of it. The atmosphere is so haunting; and I can nearly see the corn waving in the wind. This is really impressive.

Wow, thanks for all the praise everybody! Mouse2cat the print is 13" x 21", and I never printed a full edition of the print due to lack of press and lack of skill at hand printing. A friend of mine who has a press recently moved to my town, so I have been thinking about getting back into woodcut and printing this block. I maintain an online store at [link] where I sell some prints of my work. When I edition this print I'll be sure to update deviant with the information.

Your woodcuts have an excellent sense of line and texture. I love the details of the field and then how that dissolves into line and movement.

I do woodcuts all the time and I really admire this style. How big is the print? and have you ever considered selling your edition?
