    glad to see you haven't gone the way of the buffalo (iffy). these are some really excellent studies man!! you have wicked skills with the pen, the fact that it's ball point makes it that much more.

    thanks everyone

    capt harlock- yeah, i've been around, i just don't have too much stuff i wanna post, but someone at school said i should post these, so i did.

    ant4d-Thanks, yeah i don't really like graphite, so i stick with pen, plus using a pen makes you be more carefull about what you put down. Alot of the skeletal stuff is from a anatomy book, and i wanted to do those sketches really academically.

    main loop-thanks, I just filted through the vanderpoel for about the fourth time or so, making notes for myself and just doing a couple of the drawings. I also wanted to see if i could get the same sensitivity that he was getting in charcoal with a pen.

    these are fantastic. you have great sensitivity with the ballpoint, i dont htink ive seen anything so finely rendered from ballpoint before. i started drawing in ballpoint exlusivley quite recently and seeing these makes me very happy indeed. i wonder how many more times i can say "ballpoint" in the rest of this post.



    ...

    once, apparently.

    [edit] oh yeah, i hate to ask this in this thread, but do you have any tips you could give me for ballpoint rendering? (ok, twice) [/edit]

    So ball-point pen eh tiny? These look like a buncha' rend rin's to me. I mean, whose ever heard of drawling with ball-point pen? What are all those little writin's for? Can't you remember what the different bones of the feet are? You should really commit them to memory.
    By the way, my kid brother say's you're all wash.

    nil-yeah sure no problem. I'll do a little demo on how i use the pen if you want. But mainly, with ballpoint, its staying light and slowly building up your darks. I actually use my finger alot to soften edges and blend lines together to get flat tones. There will always been line still, but thats just the nature of the tool. And because you can't erase you have to be more carefull about what you put down. Don't commit until you absolutely have to.

    yellow- um, yeah. half the time i'm doped up on drugs and cheap liquor. I can barely remember my name sometimes. So i right...er... write crap down. oh, and your kid brother is absolutely right.

    i gots to get me one of those zebra pens...,and draw more..

    hands how bout some hi res shots of those so everyone can see your pretty renderings up close...they lose some of their charm when you can't see how those edges and cores were built up with slight hatching,

    i'll try and do a quick little demo and post it, so people can see how i'm doing this, and how i build up edges and soften and stuff. Maybe when i get back from class today.

    These are great! When I saw they were done with a pen I was blown away. The range of tones achieved is larger than I've probably ever seen with a pen. I'd love to see some of your work in higher res.
