Guiry's Stippling Tutorial

 

What is stippling?

Stippling is the creation of an image using small dots. Contrary to popular belief, it differs from pointillism and divisionism in that it is done in a single color and with uniform shapes, relying on the density of the dots to convey darkness and light. It was popularized as a means of print illustration because it can be easily replicated with only black ink, and is sometimes preferred to hatching (another popular form of two-dimensional shading using lines instead of dots) because it doesn’t inhibit the rendering of contours.
