Hi folks,

I wanted to share this work I did a couple of years ago with you, I've made this with the use of only felt tip pens, dot after dot. It's on paper and the size is: 16''x 23.5''

I was inspired by a picture of Clint Eastwood in the movie "The Outlaw Josey Wales" Hope you get inspired to try something similar

Re: Outlaw

You do a great job on portraits, which I've never been able to do myself. I simply cannot do people well. I've done a little work with the pen and ink "pointillism" but cannot imagine doing it on something this size.

Thanks for the compliment Sharon, never give up on trying portraits because I have the feeling that you would really like to do that? Post some, I'm sure people here will give you some positive input.

Re: Outlaw

Now, this is one rare and dam* fine contribution to American popular culture--and I mean that only as a compliment! Very cool choice of artistry.

Re: Outlaw

Wow, this is excellent! I really like how you managed to do this with using felt pens, with lots of simple and primary colors. You have much more patience than I! Enjoyed this very much, glad you shared it with us.

Re: Outlaw

Aari, I love that movie! and I love your portrait! Clint is one of my favorites. I am reading Stephen King's Dark Tower series right now, in which the main character is based on Clint Eastwood. Keep it up!

Re: Outlaw

Pointillism...now that is an art form that takes patience and time. It is so rewarding though.

This is wonderful! Great colors and the fabrics are stunning! Well done!

Re: Outlaw

Different in a very good way. Of course it is well done and it makes a great piece of art. A good example of outside the box and it worked.

Re: Outlaw

wow, very nice piece. I often wondered how to do pointilism with color pens. Thanks for sharing. The neon blue pistols are very cute. The skin tone is not that easy to do. Great colors.
