How did he get those tiny white dots?

cross-hatching in various overlapping degrees

Indeed, cross hatching gets you those white dots. The technique is comparable to pattern dithering as we use it in pixel art...

It's extremely clear that the above piece is made in an additive way, not substractive.

Oh absolutley. What made me wonder about white ink was the brighter spots on his right (our left) shirtsleeve. They kinda have that chunky look, as if they've been applied afterwards, but looking again it's clear he left white areas there and then simple added small black dots and short strokes. </captainobvious>

Also noteworthy is that most of the stuff he did/does in his Moebius mindframe is not penciled beforehand at all.

Unlike in the Lt. Blueberry comics where he worked under his real name, Jean Giraud and uses a more classic American comic style, very masterful too, those were layed out and penciled beforehand and inked with a brush and quillpen. Moebius stuff mostly is done with inkpens and NO sketches at all most of the time ;3;

hehe, pretty sure he means Moebius. And yes, Moebius IS good, very good. Go and search for some of his stuff. One thing to note is "40 days in desert B" which is a comic without a real story he drew in a sketchbook, all landscape format single panel pages. Those were done without any sketchwork with inkpens. It's beautiful

This is one of the most awesome pages from that book imo. Pure gold.
