Here is my practice piece for sharp stippling. I didn't have any major struggles with this design, other than I had a tendency to want to go fast. I really had to pay attention to my speed so my stitches didn't get to big, as fore-warned by Leah. This is a very forgiving design! There were a couple of times that I worked myself into a weird area. To get out, I had to create some, what I thought at the time, were some weird shapes. They didn't seem to match the rest of the design. But now that it is done, I can't find those areas! I still need to practice, but for a first run, I'm pleased with the design! I don't know why, but it reminds me of falcons.
