Now, I'm going to write a really helpful critique for this wonderful BALL-POINT-PEN-drawing, because I can and because I want to and whatever.
This is seriousely amazing, just to mention it at least once, before I will come with "awesome, awesome, awesome [...]" and stuff. However, I like the details, I like the lights and the fact that something we see, like, every day somewhere in nowhere in edges of the cities. (At least it is like this at my place.)
And then, except for this one window above there, it is the only light source around. And just imagine: These restaurans really deserve to be honoured. They are the ones lighting les jeunes empty bellies at late hour when there's only uneatable stuff in the fridges. To be honest - I don't eat a lot anyway, especially not in the evening - I don't use this "service", but I know people who do!
Whatever, I'll just keep it at this and stop with my absolutely useful comment (*sarkasm's on*) and remember... BALL-POINT-PENS.
What do you think?

Wow... I thought I'd seen the best of ballpoint art on the internet, but obviously not. This is astounding. I've just started getting into ballpoint pen art myself, so I can imagine just how long this took you... Good job :)

really, really good. Can't imagine the amount of time it took to layer in all those details. Love the contrast and the way the colors pop off the page. Pretty crazy for ball point pens.

Overall the piece is eyecatching, with an almost photographic quality in that it has caught a moment in time demonstrating a skillful use of colour, composition & perspective.
My eye was initially drawn to the old man entering the shop and the relatively cool, subtle tones of his clothing & hair compared to the bright, warm, glow eminating from the shop. The viewer's attention is further drawn in by the subtle angular lines cast by shadows beneath the large burger sign, the figure and the more obvious post shadows. Attention is maintained by the wealth of detail seen through the brightly lit shop window, which invites the viewer into the picture and also demonstrates a skill in portraying depth in persective.

Moving out from the delights of the shop you notice the figures half hidden by the shadows in front of the pale building on the left & wonder what they're doing, ,what their story is. The shadowy line below the 'b' in "Bip" acts as a very subtle pointer to these figures demonstrating that considerable thought and skill has gone into the compostition layout.
