Is that a stippling style of engraving?

Good morning folks .
I should have made a note that this patch box lid is only 2 inches across total
It can be Gary or it can be line or a mix of both line and stipple .
What I just finished is all line work and all strait lines not curved . In some places on the elk , I got to heavy handed , thus the lines show to much . The texture of the body of te elk should be more like on the tree .

I also have been told that there should be no need to ink in the cuts so as to see the design , regardless of the angle the light hits it .
That part I got for the most part . There is one angle which if its viewed from the design disappears
Still along ways to go .

with the scrimshaw rum cup , thats all dot work and was just a practice piece . i wanted to see how well the Lindsey universal point worked for that type of work . It didn’t work all that bad but it did make rather large dots .

I don't know. You put all that time and art work into a rifle and its owner will have second thoughts about taking it outside. First time I've seen that type of engraving. No doubt your gifted in many ways Sir.

Maybe. i have seen some that were never ment to be shot . even firing them once would take a big chunk of the value away .
but for me , i think thats rather sad .
i make guns with the idea that they should be shot , taken out , enjoyed by the owner and those they shoot and hunt with .
