Stipple Head

My first attempt at stipple rendering (this is a technique where you add form by tapping lots of dots in with a fine nib) and it's not great, but even with a small sketch like this I felt like I had to put in as many dots as there are stars in the milky way. A bit of a pain in the arse. Instead of dots you could also render the lighter and darker areas with lots of small lines. To view a more subtle and dextrous demonstration of this technique go HERE
