stippling and shading
In this drawing, the artist combines shading and stippling. Due to the fact that there is shading in this piece, there are no contour lines. There is implied light which shows the white and moves down the value scale to black. The shading in this artwork creates mass in the object, which in turn creates an implied shape. There is no line but the dots make an edge making it seem like there is sphere. This drawing illustrates all of the shades in the value scale.
