Scientific Illustration

I'm doing a Masters Degree in Scientific Illustration!

The illustration work is basically 90% of sketching and adjusting the image to make it look accurate, and then 10% for the final piece, although the final piece can a LONG time to finish... Specially in Stippling (dotwork).

Although I do a lot of fine-tip pen illustration, specially with the Micron005, I had never worked with an ink nib before and obviously it all went wrong the first and second time I attempted Stippling. I'm starting to get the hang of it, but it's all very new still.


- Silk Worm, Bombyx Mori

(Graphite and Watercolour Sketches + 1st attempt at Stippling)





















(Big Smudge, 2nd attempt at Stippling)



(Stippling, Work-in-Progress - 3rd attempt and hopefully the final one!)
