Ruthenium - Self Portrait by SRudy Ruthenium - Self Portrait by SRudy
After working on it for roughly 4 months, I can finally say that I'm done with this artwork, my first pointillism artwork. I had nightmares because of this...
Make sure to check the full view.

Used black ink on cold press paper.

excellent, I'm not big fan of pointillism, but the way you do it seems perfect, This shows that if a technique is well used, the work is good, the way you have captured the darkness and light is very good, because define the shadows very well, congratulations, this is the best surreal pointillism that I ever saw. try giving more life to the eyes look a bit dead.
your work seems very original, as it should be the surreal art, I prefer to have colors because I think this makes it more shocking, but that's a personnel matter
you are very good doing Pointillism, keep doing it.
reminds me of my self-portrait surreal look it victorguard.deviantart.com/art…
PD: sorry for the spelling my english is not very good

I love the contrast between the city and the face here, it would be perfect for the cover of a book or movie. My question is, how on earth do you manage to make it sooooo detailed? Granted, I know that you took about 4 months to do this, but it still seems extremely difficult via this method of artistry at this level.

I attempted pointillism once and that was enough for me lol. To have done a piece of such grander is mind boggling, glad you made it through to the other side with your sanity intact.

One of the hallmarks of really great surreal art is that it shows you things you never would have expected or imagined.  This totally blew me away; it's truly extraordinary!
