Here is my second attempt at stippling. I made this for a friend of mine who is crazy about pirates.
I made a lot more dark areas than my other piece. It was fun. I think my fave part of this is the round border. I want to do more round borders.
I wanted this scene to be happening at night. I knew I could not just create an entirely black background.... not only would it look overwhelming, but it would butt right up against the captain's dark coat. so I started at the moon's edges with darker, then gradually eased out into the night sky. Would love input as to whether this 'worked' or not.
thanks for looking!
