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.)

The rest of them.
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.
Your art is AMAZING!!!! I bet those take a LONG time to complete! Each one is just awesome!! I really want to see more....you just blew my mind!

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.
My sketchbook, if you really want to see it...

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!

Beautiful. You even make cellulite look good.

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.
wow! such beautiful textures!
wow! such beautiful textures! ever use color?
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.
Lovely style! Congrats!
I like lightning
Pure awesomness! Your anatomy knowlendge is very good, counting the rendering wich is not ofently seen in the style of artists in this site! Your works are refreshing! Thanks a lot sir and take care, god bless you! - g
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.
