Ive just finished this. Its all stippled. I took a leaf out of M.Ramos' book after watching a video of him stippling, and decided to slow down my stippling and think more about what I was doing, as well as try and get less little lines from being too speedy. I quite like the result, though perhaps I could have done more modelling on the cheek area.
Also I wanted a black background but wasnt sure how to merge a black background around the existing dots, so I just left it alone.
What do you think?

Re: Sad Skull

I'm no expert on stippling but you've definately picked up some tricks from M Ramos and executed them well.

I don't think darkening the cheeks is necessary, they work already as for the background there doesn't really need to be one it's a study of an object not a scene. Stippling a background would drive you dotty

I really like this one! No expert either at stippling and also admire your ability.

Re: Sad Skull

Nice! I've never tried stippling. I'm pretty sure I'd totally destroy my nibs after five dots.

Re: Sad Skull

Thanks all. Yes it does take an awfully long time to build up the dark areas. But because it is so slow, theres a lot of time to decide what ink to put where, more margin for error. However, I dont think I want to do all my pictures like this!
