After working on it for roughly 4 months, I can finally say that I'm done with this artwork, my first pointillism artwork. I had nightmares because of this...
Make sure to check the full view.

Used black ink on cold press paper.

I love the contrast between the city and the face here, it would be perfect for the cover of a book or movie. My question is, how on earth do you manage to make it sooooo detailed? Granted, I know that you took about 4 months to do this, but it still seems extremely difficult via this method of artistry at this level.

Bet. That's very admirable, the best things in life are those things you work hard for.

I attempted pointillism once and that was enough for me lol. To have done a piece of such grander is mind boggling, glad you made it through to the other side with your sanity intact.

I'm very glad I'm still sane! I did another pointillism artwork which is almost twice as big as this one :D

Didn't realise this was pointillism until I saw it up close, staggering piece of work mate.

Very cool, unique and somewhat disturbing. But the cool and unique are prevalent. I like it. :aww:

Cool beans! I'm working on right now, but it's 50x70cm and it takes forever!
