BALL POINT PEN DRAWING - WORK IN PROGRESS : EXPLORATION OF WRINKLES

in ulog •  19 days ago

Hello steemains!
Here's a ball point pen drawing I have been working on gradually since last two week. The drawing has seen about 5 other works completed - mostly pencil drawing. So today I decided to share the progress shot. This is how far I have gone.

Despite the fact it consumes a whole lot of time, working with pen can be interesting and at the same time challenging.

Here's a close shot of the eye. You might wanna ask how long it took me to complete it. Well, am not yet done. I think I would discover some areas where I would have to add more shading or thereabout in the process of finishing it. For now it has consumed about 3 hours.

The journey is still far but I will get there - probably next week. I can't tell.

@maxijgcomm Incredible friend the evolution of your work of art and drawing with pen. The step by step and every detail in the drawing is incredible and beautiful. How you do every feature of the face. Eyes, nose and every wrinkle on his face. That's fantastic. I like it a lot. A big hello. Happy night. Happy night.

·

Thanks a lot. So glad you like my work. Hoping to see around for the complete work.

It is a pleasure for me to wait to see the final result. A big hug.

This is a great ballpoint drawing, the fact that all the wrinkles are nicely articulated by a blue pen gives an unusual and unique look to your art, almost as if I'm looking at a blue skin human ^^.          
         
Congratulations on your first curie vote :).

Yea it me a hell of time but I enjoyed it. I love working with pen cause it gives me joy and flows along with my mind.

Thanks for stopping by friend.

Step by step detailed description. That's good. Your work are always on point. Kudos bro.

·

Thanks bro. The detailing was time consuming but I had to exercise patience to see it through.

Nice to see you around.

I can only imagine how challenging (and tricky) it was getting this drawing done, it turned out to be incredibly beautiful. Her eyes, the wrinkles... you made them appear beautiful...

I haven't seen much of "blue-penned" drawing, so this definitely is unique for me.

·

Absolutely, every artist has own way of presenting his work. It is either it apeals the mind or not.

Thank you for appreciating my work.
I hope to see you around for the final piece.

·

I will definitely love to see the final piece!

You have some serious skills here. I love the details and shading/dept you created. Really curious how cool the end result will turn out. But I am pretty confident it will be some great fine ball-point art!

·

Absoluty...I believe so too. I can even envisage it even though am not yet done.

Thanks for stopping by.

Wow. The level of detail to the drawing is amazing. All the lines and features that you bring to life through the shading with the pen. To be honest i didn't think you could create something like this with those tools. You have a special talent for art.

·

The detailing was time consuming and it worth it because I needed to make it look captivating and unique.

Thanks a for appreciating my work.

·

It would be hard not to. I would hope that anybody could see the quality in there as soon as they look at it. It doesn't really matter where your tastes lie.
