39 stippling hours later - it's done!

First photo is just taken by the camera - color is off and missing lots of detail. The second was on the scanner and is much more real-to-life but the scanner won't take the whole thing (10x10"). I'm wondering now, it art? I enlarged the photo and traced about 50% of the lines (just the major lines, so I didn't get lost). I didn't compose it (other than to decide on a format and the decision to eliminate the lid of the watch--on the left). I basically did a black/white pen/ink copy of the original photo--which I didn't take. I've been planning on entering it in the Intermountain Society of Artists' spring show next week, but now I don't know...


  1. Hi Susan,

    This is awesome, but you won't mind if I tell you that you're missing a spring to go into such endeavour :-)

    Kind regards,


  2. Wow Sue, this is so wonderful and i just have to comment on your extraordinaire artwork on this peice, its beautiful, isn't it amazing what we will put ourselves through for the sake of art!
