Puking cats

An etching and aquatint I did. The texture/stippling was done with a metal brush.
The top print is a ghost print which I went over with pen. I almost prefer that print as the detail was lost with the aquatint but at least I was able to get it back with the pen.
The second is done with blue black ink and the last was inked up in a more brown ink which I don't think was as effective.
Below is my plate. I thought I'd show it just for fun. The scanner made it a bit blue, even tho it is actually silver.
Below that is the etching before the aquatint was added and below that is the original drawing.
