This is a video of artist David Bayo working on a piece entitled ‘Astrée’, which he estimates took approximately 300 hours and 3,000,000 tiny stippling dots to complete. That is a lot of dots.

It took me about 300 hours and more than 3 million dots to complete this piece. Hope you guys will enjoy it. Let me know what you think of it. Thanks for sharing if you like the artwork.Bayo is a self-taught artist based in Strasbourg, France.
The artist spent around 300 hours (or 12.5 days non-stop) creating the piece, with nothing but a faint pencil line to guide him.He said: I like to explore different areas, both including subjects and mediums, but keeping in mind my true passion for portraits.
That’s why you can find many styles of drawing on my website, but in my opinion they don’t necessarily conflict one another.The artist filmed his hours of work, then sped it up to fit a video of a minute-and-a-half, so that people can watch the painstaking detail that went into the piece.
