Last year I printed out a few black and white photos from the web that I thought would be neat to draw. This was one. I’ve started following a very talented sketchbook artist on Tumblr, who inspired me to attempt what he does: portraiture with a ballpoint pen. Mission accomplished… sort of.
I think I did a pretty good job with the ballpoint part, but, as always, I can’t leave well enough alone. Well, here’s what happened:
I started adding black watercolor, so it was all black & white for a while, then I got bored with that. It needed some color, so I just went crazy. Not too terribly disappointed with the outcome, I must say. Catches the eye, doesn’t it? 🙂
