Stipling Micron Galaxy
I'm posting up an ink drawing I've been working my ass off for yonkeys, on and off for months.
I'm going to finish it within the next two days, and I realised I'd really benefit from any feedback and constructive crits people on here might have.
The medium is a 0.05mm micron ink pen, on a small 14x10cm paper surface. It's all done with stipling, and I don't want to use anything other than dots, no lines or masses.
Its almost finished, so I don't have much room for changes - but you never know what helpful suggestions might pop up.
I'm particularly concerned about the white areas of the galaxy, I want it all to be bright and make use of patches of bare white, particularly around the center of the galaxy. I envision the rings getting darker as they go out, with the ones close to the centre really brimming with light, though I'm not quite sure thats working right now. I think I shouldn't have added so much texture to the front ring, closest to the viewer, and so things are a bit out of balance now, and I'm contemplating if/how to darken out the rest to compensate.
Thanks a lot for your suggestions

Hey that looks awesome.
I don't think there's any problems with the rings. If anything, I find the beam in the center a bit confusing. Is it a continuation of the spiral? Or does it go straight through? I can't see.
Other than that, it looks magical.

Hey Bertling, thanks for your comments!
It goes through, but at the centre the ring and the beam sort of converge, the ring wraps around the beam. I'll see if I can make that more clear.
It's cool...doesn't really feel like a galaxy is all. Fun project but I'd simply put aside. If interested in painting a more "accurate" galaxy I would go with a more appropriate medium and technique and rely on a variety of reference as a guide.
Lovely image! I agree with Jeff; call it done and move on. It reminds me of the nuclear chaos at the centre of all realities; Daemon Sultan, Blind Idiot God, Azathoth.
That or the accretion disc of an active black hole!
it's great !!! welldone
Thanks for the comments all. It wasn't finished so I had to work on it some more, but its now as done as can be.
