Finally the long awaiting ballpoint pen drawing has been completed. The work was started since last year November and completed this year.

Sometimes I used to wonder how I managed to make a work appear as real as this but then I realized it didn't just happen naturally. It's not an over night stuff. It's a combination of many different Inputs - Hard work, dedication, time, perseverance, patience, believe and some other factors which I can't tell.


For the past coule of weeks, I was patiently working on this piece of art without rushing it because of what I wanted to achieve. I utilized simple and cheap tools to work on this portrait pen drawing - a cardboard paper of 12 by 15 inches and a ball point pen (black and blue).


Development Preocess

Step 1: Working on the cap and forehead

Step 2: Working on the face

Step 3: Completed the face

Step 4: Working on the cloth

Step 5: Still working on the cloth

Step 6: Completed the cloth and added a background

Step 7: Framed
Final Piece on Frame
