View Full Version : I think I got it

By George I think I got it.

I have always been hung up on line art, the use of simple lines to create a complex feel. Using line weight and placement to fool the eye into seeing what I want to be seen, often a rather difficult task when also trying to convey dimension. So far my little jump into understanding stippling has allowed me to look at line art in a different way, rather than using hard clean lines I have just stippled the lines making them softer and adding a new layer of dimension. I am rather pleased with the results, and will continue to explore this concept while still trying some other styles.

C & C always welcome

It's always amazing what a few little dots can convey.

I love this:thumbsup:

I love stippling as well and there is really no end to the subjects that can be stippled.

Keep up the good work!!

Thank you all! It is great to find a place to learn new ideas, and to be exposed to so many interesting ways to work with ink. Along with so many people that each bring something different to the table. Speaking of tables, I best get mine cleaned up, currently can not remember the color of the table top.

:clap: :clap: :clap: Very well done. I've always thought simple line drawings were great, but when I try they turn into children's drawings. Children's drawings are wonderful, when drawn by a child. (Especially grandchildren.) Keep up the good work. My table is...wait...where's my table!!! Loranda

I would say it takes little to convert me - I am always trying new things, and am a well known nutter at the best of times.

And I have yet to find the table top:)

Beautiful Rendering ... you got the placment of the features very nice. I think I have found my niche, finally in pen and ink and watercolor wash. I have drawn in pencil and colored pencil for years and recently tried watercolor paint. I love working with the paint and the color mixing, etc.... but I miss the pencils. I think the ink and pen and the WC washes is going to be it for me finally.

Val and Mickey - Thank you.

But Mickey - Never say never, and finally never say finally!

But enjoy what you enjoy for the moment! Most every thing I do starts in one way or another with some kind of pencil. A block of Cartridge paper and a few different pencils, and some mixed removers (Pink, White, Magic, and kneadable) is all I need to pass an afternoon. Well, coffee, smokes, and a warm place to sit back and relax a little can be helpful too.
