Stippling is a technique of creating drawings with tiny dots of ink or other media. It can create beautiful effects of shading, texture and depth. In this blog post, I will show you how to create a stippling drawing in a few easy steps.

Step 1: Choose your subject and reference image. You can draw anything you want with stippling, but some subjects are easier than others. For example, animals, plants and landscapes can look great with stippling, while human faces and buildings can be more challenging. You can use a photo or a sketch as your reference image, or you can draw from your imagination.

Step 2: Trace or sketch the outline of your subject on a piece of paper. You can use a pencil, a pen or a lightbox to do this. Make sure the outline is clear and accurate, as it will guide your stippling later.

Step 3: Start stippling inside the outline. Use a fine-tipped pen or marker to make small dots on the paper. The closer the dots are, the darker the area will look. The farther apart the dots are, the lighter the area will look. You can also vary the size and pressure of the dots to create different effects.

Step 4: Add details and contrast. You can use stippling to create details such as fur, feathers, scales, leaves, etc. You can also use stippling to create contrast between light and dark areas, such as shadows and highlights. To create more contrast, you can make more dots in the dark areas and fewer dots in the light areas.

Step 5: Erase or cover any unwanted marks. If you used a pencil to sketch the outline, you can erase it after you finish stippling. If you used a pen, you can cover it with white paint or correction fluid. Alternatively, you can leave the outline as part of your drawing.

Step 6: Enjoy your stippling drawing! You have created a beautiful artwork with just dots. You can frame it, hang it on your wall, or give it as a gift. You can also scan it and share it online with your friends and followers.

In conclusion, stippling is a fun and easy way to create stunning drawings with just dots. You can use this technique to draw any subject you want, and experiment with different effects of shading, texture and depth. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and learned something new. Happy stippling!
