I'm afraid you misinterpret me here, Batman55
. "Sardonic" implies mockery, does it not? My point might possibly stand, but I was just having a bit of silly fun. I respect Mike
's purist stance to the point that I've decided in future to restrict myself to straight-up pen-and-ink in this forum and put pen and anything else in Watermedia.
Having said that, the stipple question is something else. Look at Scenechaser/Bill, Gary Gackstatter, Maestro Ramos, Toowoomba... all frequent stipplers and all among the most accomplished artists in the forum (IMHO, FWIW).
