Artwork Description

Ink and Graphite drawing, 4 7/8" x 2 7/8". Foreground elements were inked with a technical pen; the tower's roof was inked with a grayscale pen. Background trees were pencilled, and most areas of the drawing, except for highlights such as the tower's windows, were lightly toned with pencil for contrast and warmth.

Thanks, guys- I appreciate all the kind
words. Stippling is admittedly a time- consuming technique- But building up the layers slowly is still the only way I've found to achieve the look I want. A friend looked at The Watchman's Way tonight, and said, "You're nuts. You're just nuts." I said, "I'm not nuts. I'm thorough."
That's my story, and I'm stickin' to
it Smile

Excellent work Mark, wonderful gallery. It's great to see someone who obviously has a passion for what he does. I see you're a fellow fan of Virgil Finlay, without doubt the best exponant of blackline/stipple technique -ever. Hope to see more of your work soon.

wow these are great, so much detail in such a small area. Have you ever done anything in color? A few layers of color in photoshop could give it even more depth.

Great detail! I love the little staircase in the bottom left area. This piece illustrates why I gave up stippling years ago (I was never gonna get this good at it!).

Art at its best.
