I started a new pointillism piece last night. I forgot to take a picture of my sketched base drawing. Sorry for the quality of the pictures. I just do the WIP snapshots with my phone so I can send them directly to my FB account.

Here is what I finished as of last night -



The progress from this morning (wasn't working on it long) -

Oh thank you for doing one of these as a WIP! Now what kind of paper are you using? Is this with pen?

Yep. This is totally with a pen after I sketch out the main portion.

For this one I am using Canson Pure white drawing paper, 11x14" in size, 80lb weight. The pens I use are Sakura Pigma Microns. I get them here - - I use a mixture of all those sizes. For the really tiny light shading I use the 005 (smallest) and actually, since I don't have any larger ones to hand (waiting on them to come!) I am using the 005 for this whole picture.

Most of the time I am using a drawing paper of some sort as I feel it holds up a little better then the marker/pen paper.

I will totally take some pictures every day of the progress if you would like. Well I take pictures anyways so I can actually see how far I have progressed, lol, but I am more then willing to post them all here too. :D

I think it's awesome you do pointillism. I did one my freshman year in high school for a project and know an artist in the area that's done a few pieces. Definitely takes a lot of patience!
It looks great so far!

That would be great! I love to see how other artists' work evolves, especially when it's something I'm not familiar with. :)

Sorry for not updating this guys. All my pens grew legs. *mad* I have a feeling my squirts took them and I can't find them now. I am waiting on my new shipment of larger diameter tips to come anyways, so until then, this is on hold. Sorry.

I will post some pictures as soon as I the new ones come or I find the others.

Well sorry this to so long to update. Life hit hard (read kids got sick, dog needed to be rushed in because she cracked her head open...) and this got put to the back burner.

Here are a couple of update pictures and some close-ups of parts of it. Once again, crappy pictures as I was taking them with my phone at something like 2 a.m. What better to do then work on this while sitting up with kids? *rolls eyes*

Oh no, that's terrible about your dog. :( I hope she's okay.

This eagle is coming along great. I can't wait to see it finished!

Oh no! I would be fuming! I had to start a drawing over that I was well over half way finished with (not because of the kids, though) and it never did look the same. *sigh*
