Portrait Made from 3 Million Dots
Pointillism is a crazy technique. Branching from the Impressionism movement, with artists like Monet and Van Gogh (though considered post-Impressionism, he's definitely in the know of making his 'points'), Pointillism has developed from slashing the canvas with strokes of life to pinpointing every detail to the finest degree.
Miguel Endara is a modest, like most, artist who primarily dabbles in web development and design. Good thing he takes some time to stipple, because the results are astounding. "Hero," a portrait of Miguel's father is the progeny of 210 hours of work over the course of a year! The piece is made from 3.2 million (approximately) dots from a single Sakura fine point pen. One pen for over 3 million dots? What a lifeline. He filmed the video himself using homemade dollies built from PVC pipes and rubber wheels.
If it were me, I'd have ash smudges and drool stains across the canvas by hour three. No worries.
