    So youre finally on CA!!!

    Cool little start. Right now though it looks like you're rushing to get through your pictures pretty fast. You might want to take a little time to accurately define the edges/boundaries of your subject. Try going in lighty (which you can do, even if its a ballpoint pen like you're using) and then later build up your lines where appropriate.

    The watercolor kicks ass

    Unique linework you have here. One thing though, the scans look a little small and it's hard to see the finer details. But either way, keep on posting more work!

    actually all of the pieces here are ballpoint pen. papermate med point. 10 for a dollar. they are great, you can get super dark to super light lines easily with these pens.

    you know, how like agent smith says in matrix 2: "more!" i like your watercolor and pen work. buit you definately need some quality materials, if you're using ballpoints and paper that buckles under your watercolors. strathmore drawing (not sketching) is relatively cheap and takes lite washes.

    If that's ballpoint, I'm impressed, I usually mess around with ballpoint and get pretty sketchy looking drawings. I noticed you've got some pretty unique clothing going on here.

    I like your style spiffster. I'd like to see some watercolour washes over those inks! Pretty please? Especially the 'Fruits' ones - those'd be pretty cool! Nice ballpoint.
