I still can't believe you are doing this with ballpoint pens, just amazing! I have been trying graphite for awhile but I think that I am a born Pen&Ink person....I am going to have to experiment with some colors. By the way, another awesome drawing, thank you for sharing them with us [link]
I'll be honest here. I don't care much for realism because it limits your ability to be creative, which is pretty much the definition of art. And i hate the fact that ppl think that more realistic drawings are better quality.....no.....being more realistic doesn't automatically make it a superior level. But.....I do appreciate someone with an eye for detail and i think ball point pen is a creative medium to use so, that is why i love your work.
Well, like any artist, we start with our comfort zone.I'm sure when your ready to do something more.....made upish You will make it awesome.....hmmmmm maybe big O'l scary dragon one day . But your work is still wonderful. I my self like semi-realism, and i do need to practice scenes like this more if i want to get into graphic novels.....but not quite this realistic.
Well, actually, there are plenty of the main colors need for stuff like this. And as for other colors, like flesh, Colors like yellow, pink, purple, and/or red is blended together.....Brown ball point pens also exist.
Yeah, I have a set of ball-point pens with many kinds of colors including brown. However what I find amazing here is how these artists are capable of making them seem so well blended. In another submission he explains that he layers it to form the illusion of a blended color. How he does that is what amazes me since when I try it... I just get a mash.
