Blue Ballpoint Pen Portrait by Carliihde Blue Ballpoint Pen Portrait by Carliihde
This is a blue ballpoint pen portrait :)
Took an hour or so. It was so much fun, I love it! Its a great way to practice line weight and wrist control, specially if you are thinking of sitting down and inking anytime soon.
I was surprised at the shading and line weights you could get from one blue pen.

Beautiful drawing, I'm getting more attracted to ball point pen work everyday, also been trying to practice and sketch with them regularly, they are a great practice medium as you said.

it creates a perfect contrast between the white paper and the black/blue pen. I love how spontaneous it is and how u dont feel the need to erase

I love ballpoint pen-art, and your portrait looks stunning! Just wondering if you use any kind of specific ballpoint pen, which is easier to control? or just any ballpoint pen which happens to be near by?

:) The cheaper the ball point pen the better! I steal most mind from my bank after making deposits haha The cheap ones give the coolest shading effects :) But that is for you to decide for sure!
