    H-m-b sb

    All of these are ink stippling. Most are 2.5" x 3.5", some are 4" x 6"

    I will try to put these in semi-chronological order, but this first one is the latest (for thread thumbnail purposes.)

    Thank you - I used references for the human halves, just not the reptile/fish parts. I'm glad you asked me that, it definitely needed clarification.

    Very mature mark-making, the stippling is surprisingly subtle. (I always make stippling look crap) It reminds me of old black and white 19th century illustrations, that used a large amount of mark-making.

    Very good, more please.

    J - Thanks, that's one of my favorites, too.

    Americandodo - Thanks!

    pencilgeek - Thank you.

    kagemusha22 - Thanks, I love looking at early engravings and late 1800's / early 1900's illustration - lots of inspiration there.

    Just realized these didn't get posted. First one is older, second one is very recent. I know the hands are huge in the second one, but I like the pose.

    DIG IT!! You have made me think stippling is cool again! I can't stipple worth a damn - it ends up looking like a storm of insects. But you really have a gift! *I Really liked Mermaid 3-1 was just cool how her hand pushes in on her skin - the way the light and dark just makes that subtle emphasis - AWESOME! Keep em coming!

    nice drawing
    As for the last two pictures, I think the problem kinda extends a bit onto the arms; IMO it's kinda big, compared to her body.

    still, welcome here ^^ and good luck, I guess?
