Default Re: Shading practice

Here are a couple of my latest practice plates. I feel like I am stalling out a little on the shading, so I tried several different ways to see what would look best on that type of scroll. There is one scroll that I tried to use my new banknote engraver, but I think I need more practice on that, as it left only furrows in the metal with ridges on either side instead of cutting the metal properly, no matter how often I sharpened it. That's on the circular design.
