Check out these Game of Thrones pen and ink portraits by Marcio Ramos, aka M.Ramos of Brazil. He’s painstakingly created these portraits with thousands upon thousands of stippled dots using his Copic Multiliner SPs, limitless artistic skill, and lots and lots of patience.
This art form is known as the “hedcut“, which draws on traditions of pointillism, woodcut and engraving.
What inspired you to draw these hedcuts?
A friend asked me to do a hedcut for a gift, and as I’m a fan of the series, continued to assemble the collection.
So are you a big fan of the book series, too?
I could not stop drawing to read the books, but I have followed the TV series!
Do you like Multiliners strictly for stippling, or do use them for other projects, too?
I use them for scientific illustration and comics projects as well.
What sizes are you using most?
I started using pens 0.03 and 0.05 but even already today I’ve used all the nibs, including the Brush Small (BS).
Multiliner Pens are practical and easy to handle. I like the ability to exchange nibs, and the easy of use of the refill.
What’s next for you, any other big projects coming up soon?
The continued collection of a series of Game of Thrones hedcuts, a Railway Series and the production of a graphic novel… in stippling.
