'Out of the Shadows 4.0' 20" x 26" White Ink on black paper, pointillism drawing.
'Out of the Shadows 4.0' is a continuation of my pointillism series. These drawings are made using a stippling technique that uses thousands and thousands of white ink dots, applied to black paper to create highly detailed gradient shading that allows for heavy contrast and subtle transitions. These drawings use methods of dimensional light photography, where bodies are strategically lit to sculpt the light along the curves of the face or body. I try to use this technique to create ink drawings that use light and negative space, to impart a complete image by showing very little of the actual figure.
Check out some close-up images of the details of all of the dots:
