Your work is beautiful are you self taught if so you have an excellent instructor
I draw we'll with ballpoint pen but not this well
All I use is a blue Bic pen with that limitation I could never do art that is as
Photorealistic as the art you produce

i may have to invest in a mech clutch pencil. i'm tired of not being able to capture real likeness such as you've achived even on a small scale drawing. also not being able to draw accurate likeness from a distance. very cool to see how well you've done with it. awesome job mate :)

Thanks man, they have helped me loads, not to say theyre so much easier to sharpen than graphite pencils, and give much more fine control and lining.
Thats why I draw on small scale, im starting large scale work soon and want to test myself on a small scale first.

i have some normal mech pencils 0.35 0.5 and 0.7 so what advantages do you find with yours ? also i have a friends birthday coming up in a month or so and if i'm doing ok for i was wondering if you do commissioned work ? anyway really looking forward to seeing what you have in store on a larger scale :)
