    My first try at stippling - time lapse video. Thoughts and suggestions?

    I started stippling after taking an art class in college that introduced me to the art form. This is my third attempt, and I took a time lapse video to show my process. Please share your thoughts. I just want to improve.

    My god that looks time consuming. My question is how did you arrive at such a precise construction, is it traced or drawn with perspective techniques?

    Yes it's extremely time consuming, but I like it because you can correct your errors easily and make changes midway through. I had it drawn up on a separate piece of paper and used a light box to trace it through.

    Your capability is impressive on the technical side of things but I wish you would shed more info on why you decided on this composition and what was your goal beyond testing your skills?
    I'm not trying to be an asshole , I'm just asking because it looks like a realistic car on a white background and kinks + distortions aside, something similar to the end result can be accomplished by digitally processing a photo using special filters.
    so I just don't get it?

    I just enjoy creating vehicles. It is a replica of an existing car. I actually work in the prototype department for a major car manufacturer, so I enjoy working with the design and creation side of things. I've though about adding shadows or even a background but I'm new to that form of detail.

    If it's a hobby then fair enough it's pretty hard to say your doing anything wrong. However speaking as a member of this art comunity i would find it much more interesting seeing a video of your construction techniques. I know that may have been the opposite of what you may have thought but yeah, I'm currently trying to improve my freehand perspective and would find the pre-rendering of this video very interesting if you could do a demonstration of that.

    Should I add a background. Make things a little more realistic?

    you spent so much time stippling those wheels and then theyre off >.<. the front wheels depth isnt going to the correct vanishing point, the rear wheel is too thin, and their plane transition is too abrupt. while you can fix the later 2 easily, the first issue is a real problem.

    feel free to ignore the following, as it is just personal taste...

    i had to do this for 3 months 5 hours each week in school, stippling different matters... textures, forms and last a watch. in my opinion this is completely useless. and ugly. using lines, like in the drawings of franklin booth e.g. is a different matter in both aspects. they need to be designed well to work, so youd learn a bunch trying it. and more important they are incredibly beautiful. but stippling is so UGH... adding the time it takes, it, to me, is the most useless technique of all.

    other than that.. well, respect for your dedication.
