3.2 Million Tiny Dots and A LOT of Patience

Nice picture, right? It looks even more amazing once you realize that it is made up of 3.2 million dots… Miguel Endara from Miami, Florida spent 210 hours painstakingly completing the picture using a single Sakura Pigma Micron pen with a nib of just 0.2mm.


Realistic: Hero has been drawn with a staggering 3.2million dots

The image shows the artists father, and took more than 11 months to complete

Mr Endara said: ‘I’m a great admirer of stippling, so I decided to create this portrait of my father using this technique to experience this incredible art form for myself.‘I’ve always wanted to pay tribute to my father for being a great person. ‘His personality is warm and unquestionably friendly, and of course very playful – as you can see in the unflattering drawing he agreed to participate in.‘We scanned a series of images of his face, and the final portrait is an amalgamation of those photos.’

The amazingly detailed illustration was done entire in a single Sakura Pigma Micron pen with a nib of just 0.2mm

A video of Mr Endara's epic efforts has become an internet sensation with over 6million views

He added: ‘The number of dots is an approximation, not an exact number. But it’s a very, very close approximation.

‘I filmed myself in just about every section of my drawing and got an average of 4.25 dots per second, which translated into 3,213,000 dots if you multiply that by 210 hours, which is what I logged in for the drawing.’

Now Mr Endara’s video has become an online sensation, attracting more than 6million views in two months on video sharing site Vimeo.

Proud: Mr Endara holds up the final piece
