I’ve been on a stippling (dots for shading) kick lately, and I’ve gotten fairly good at it, but it takes forever – between 9 and 12 hours of hard work for each piece. I’ve been wanting to put stippling aside and try something new, and I was thinking about trying one in a style similar to this, as I’m really impressed by your work. Normally cross-hatching isn’t that time consuming, but I’ve never seen it taken to such extensive and detailed levels before; I can easily imagine this took a lot of time. So my question then is what’s your average time commitment for a piece this size? I don’t even know how big it is, but I imagine it’s about a full A4 page? Reply Hi Don, Thanks for the possitive feedback. Yeah I work mostly on A4 paper, but sometime also on A3. One (A4 drawing takes me 6 to 8 hours, depending on the ammount of black. Black is really timeconsuming cause it has to be done twice to get good contrast but you don’t have to be concentrated for that;) Good luck! Reply Thanks for the info. I can’t imagine doing an A3 unless I had a ton of time on my hands – wow. Stippling seems to be the same as far as black areas – I’ve frequently had to go back over black areas to darken them up properly, and it makes the timeline stretch out seemingly indefinitely. Unfortunately I’ll have to shelve this style to try some other time since I’m looking to try something with significantly less time commitment. But thanks again for the info, double thanks for the inspiring art, and I can’t wait to see your next drawing. I hope Morgan F. gets to see this one day. Love your work. I like doing pen and ink art, but it takes more patience than I usually have…must adjust my patience scale, right? Reply Thanks, yeah it’s all about patience… Reply Fantastic drawing. Great style you have. Very impressive work! Regards Hans Solcer Reply Thanks Hans! Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
