Drawing with blue pen - " Faces".

in ntopaz •  4 months ago
Hello friends of STEEMIT, a big greeting to the artistic community of "TOPAZ" today I present this visual artistic work done in its entirety with the blue pen technique, since a few publications ago I began to teach the different tones we can get from a blue pen, all the technique is based on getting these tones and textures through the pressure exerted on the pen to the surface, which in this case is white card and of course some patience, this new technique caught me a few years ago , which was for me a surprise to be able to make drawings with a pen that has a single tone, I hope you are encouraged to practice a little and discover this modality that is very interesting in the practice and handling of unique tones.

"Face with lenses".


Step 1.

I make the sketch in graphite pencil "HB-2" and start to give the first blue ballpoint textures.

Step 2.

We continue with the same pattern of textures with small stripes, so we give the contour to the image..

Step 3.

Here we have the face 80% completed, we continue with the rest of the drawing following the same parameters of small stripes that have a uniform sense, then we made a new layer of texture to give more contrast.

Presentation .

Friend artist, here I leave you the scale of shades in blue of the pen, I invite you to visit the community of "TOPAZ" at this address .

Such a beautifully executed drawing @betzaelcorvo. Thank you for sharing your technique. It's quite amazing to be able to achieve such a variation of tone using the one pen and I can understand the time and patience you would need to have to draw like this. Bravo.

Fabulous! I love my ink doodling but need major practice. Hopefully I'll be able to do the business one day. Well drawn!!


thank you friend for your support, with a little practice we can achieve good objectives, the organization is important and the time to dedicate, greetings friend.

This is fanominal work, I really like how you have kept the light source consistent, it looks really good. I wish one day I'd be as good as this.
Thank you for sharing, it's very inspiring for me since I've been getting in to art.


a pleasure to know your opinion, since I started in this technique my first steps was to investigate how to make the soft texture of light tones, and organize a time of half an hour a day, and little by little I was getting good results, just a little of practice, passion and desire to do so many goals will be achieved, greetings friend.

Es un hermoso trabajo @betzaelcorvo, me hubiese gustado verlo ayer y apoyarte pero estuve un poco ocupada. :(


a pleasure to see your message and very happy because the work was your liking and pleasure, art is life, what we leave for those who will be in the future, to follow our art and teaching joy our effort has a reward, greetings friend .


Si, tienes muchas razón en eso, así como aprendimos de lo que ya no están en la actualidad pero sus obras inspiraron a muchos.

This is a very beautiful and neat artwork. Patience and Practice can do wonders.

Please what kind of camera did you use for the shot?


Hi friend, it's a pleasure to have your positive message here, the camera that I use for the photographs is Panasonic model LUMIX - DMC - ZS5 - 10 megapixel and the images of the steps I edit them with the powerpoint 2013 program, so I make a newer presentation , regards.
