How can I draw dots in Illustrator?

I haven’t been able to find the help I’m looking for online.
I’m trying to place dots on my drawing – ideally just clicking the mouse / pressing the tablet pen where I want the dot to be.

The dot itself could be a very short stroke object, or a small circle with a fill – it doesn’t matter – but should be visible. I tried using the Paintbrush tool, the Pen tool, and the Pencil too. I do not want to use the Ellipse tool and have to drag the tool each time.

This is a good example of what I am trying to do. I also prefer placing the points myself as I draw them rather than drawing lines or shapes and filling them with points.


I recommend using the ‘Blob Brush Tool'(Shift+B) to get the stippling effect. It creates a circle each time you click or tap with your tablet pen. For small dots it might create irregular 2-point shapes.
