    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.

    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?

    Excellent penwork sir!
    Do you generally work with pencil first and then go over with pen or do you work directly with ink?

    meticulous - thanks! Mermaid 3-1 was one of my favorites, but I liked the way she was turning out so much that I thought she was done way before she was. I regret stopping so early, I think she could have looked better with a lot more tone.

    AlexTooth - Thank you, I can't agree with perfect, but I appreciate the compliment.

    Trefle - yeah, I see that now; the forearms especially are too large. Thanks for the input.

    zaorr - thanks, I do love modeling around those ripply areas.

    ryonryon - thank you, I worry about texture.

    Kim bot - Thank you, I always work the figure out in pencil first.

    l0stinth0ughts and Cohen - Thanks, guys. Nope, no color ones yet.

    Just finished this one. The background didn't turn out the way I wanted, but I thought the figure was ok.

    Critique encouraged.

    these are really beautiful. I always viewed stipiling as the devil, but you've made me reconsider

    These are awesome! I wish I got you as a secret santa! It's rare to see pointilism these days. Keep it up man! It'd be neat to see some color studies too.

    These works are quite nicely done. I am a big fan of the stippling technique and am looking forward to seeing more.

    One small crit, though...
    I think the heavy outline around most of the figures is a bit too heavy, and it distracts from the more ethereal look of the rest of the work. Try making the outlines a bit lighter and thinner and they will intergrate better while still defining the shapes.

    As the ego shrinks, so the spirit expands.
