UPDATED with more recent WIPs.
WIP of ballpoint pen realistic drawing attempt. 9 colours used: 4 basic bic + 5 cheapo ones for kids. Paper - 160g/m2.
Posting because I have no idea if I ever finish the other half. I hope this hanging up there will motivate me to finish. And well, yeah boring topic, but I like using those faces as trad tools probing grounds. (ref pic used) :giggles:
My curiosity and disbelief is calmed now, and 95% confirmed that yes you can make so realistic pictures with ballpoints only. I just have to learn or figure out how to smooth it or blend it better.
Tnx for attention.
