Two for one

My friend loaned me her fancy wood engraving tools and I just made this little seahorse! It's only about 3.5"x2". Probably the actual size of some type of seahorse.
Wood engravings are done on the end of the block of wood, where the grain is superfine. There's a better explanation here if you're interested. The tools are superfine too, and tricky to use. But I think I'd like to try some more. And on some better quality paper than computer paper.
