Stippling is a technique where individual dots instead of solid lines are used to create an image (anyone remember dot-matrix printers?). This drawing took me about 20 days to complete, spending several hours a day simply adding more dots. It was very relaxing, though near the end I was just trying to finish the damn drawing before my hand dropped off. It is one of the most popular, and most mundane (as far as subject matter is concerned), drawings in my portfolio.
