Using line and stippling to create tone

Here are my first experiments. Odd how, even though the marks are quite dense in places, still, the overall impression is one of dramatic lighting. Maybe not so much with the stippling. That looks quite stylised actually.

I’m not particularly happy with these but there are elements of both that I like; the eye in the first image and the nose in the second. They both look better if you squint… Lots more practice needed!
