Norman WIP 2

11 Jan

I’ve got Norm’s eyes in place now.  I wanted to build the values very gently, so I used a 005 size pen, and a somewhat dried out one at that.  I keep the older, well-used pens because they create smaller dots while still being consistent in their performance.  They are not good for building quick values, but for delicate work, the worn-out pens are the best.

I’ve also got the second ear further along, too, as well as the values across the head and cheeks.  He’s taking shape. 🙂

    This is really amazing work. Stippling requires such focus and w/pen slow and steady. Coming along beautifully and I’m just in awe Jenna. Thanks for the explanation above, I’ve very little experience with P&I and stippling – it’s very interesting.
