Stipple and Pointillism are essentially the same thing. It is a technique used in art with lots of dots.
Medium: Black pen
A pointillist drawing of a portrait or an image on paper currency (From any country). The drawing should be larger than it is in real life. For example: the portrait should be monumentalized compared to the scale on the bill. Use more points in the corners to create a vignetting effect that will draw the eyes in toward the center.
