Human and Animal Ink Portraits

Amazing style, which makes the shapes appear to the surface of the page, like a buoyant log released from the bottom of a dark lake.

Belgian Artist Karsten Silvers is a "Scientist by day | artist by night". He attained a PhD degree in Physics in 2007.

His main interests are drawing portraits of humans and animals. He creates his work in two main styles: stippling and scribble. Silvers's drawing are mostly black and white; with some black and other white backgrounds.

For today's post we are going to look at human and animal portraits - stippling technique - black backgrounds.

It was really difficult to pick two drawings to make the index image and I can honestly say that most would have made it to the top spot; I had to choose 2 and these were the ones I came up with.

As you go through the page, I hope you see what gave me so much trouble. (this is the best trouble to have in a post).

Ps. I gave the images some titles.
