Was this done by pointism? It's so detailed I thought it was a photograph

Hey I totally understand..just woke up myself. :lol: I'm running on barely 4 hrs sleep...husband was out late on a fire call last night so of course I had to be nosy and stay up to listen in on the scanner! :rofl: I'm on the dept as well but I haven't been feeling to well so I didn't get to go on the call...damn it! :lol:

Anyway hope you like it over at AllAquatic.:) I will switch this piece over to the contest folder.:)

I've been meaning to do some in either oils or acrylics for years... time to stop procrastinating and get on with it, methinks! :D

:rofl: I do the same thing with my cross stitching sometimes. I usually work on two pieces at a time but sometimes I totally forget about the one and keep doing other ones.

Oh, lovely! I've done some pointillism (technical drawings of archaeological objects, the images don't belong to me so i haven't posted them), so i have some idea of the work this was. I'm always amazed at the subtleness one can achieve with dots.
Great work!

Hareguizer Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2010
I know what you mean! It can be quite compelling work, too. I think this piece only got finished because I would fall into a trance of dotting, and the compulsion to carry on a bit longer overcame the urge to stop and have a break.

Thank you! :hug:

Beautiful, my favorite whale!

I love the finish that the ink gives, not something often seen on here.

Thanks! They are my favourite too. Given how long it took, I can understand why this technique's not more popular.

But still, it's well worth the work. It's a very nice effect.

It took absolutely ages! I carried it around school with me for weeks, doing a bit here and there between lessons. The original's A3 sized. So many dots... no wonder my sanity's fled! :P

One point by point. So perfect. The only thing that it is negative on this work is that we cannot see it in overall: there is some missing part. But I repeat, this work is so great.

Ah, the photo reference helped. I didn't mention the photo ref did I? (Bad Hare). Yes, I got it from a book. Possibly 'Whales, Dolphins and Porpoises' I think. My memory is full of holes. I did one without ref before this and it was poo.
