The Dark Side of a Bic Pen by Crazy-Dragon The Dark Side of a Bic Pen by Crazy-Dragon
Another Bic Pen moment. I posted this on the Halo Babies forum and so I will simply say what I said there...
I actually wasn't sure if this would belong in sketches (scraps) mainly because it's unfinished but complete in a way because I don't plan on working on it again (unless i'm really bored).
This one is a year older than the other ballpoint pen entry, and please excuse the lined paper. I didn't want to erase the lines because I thought this would have been a perfect example to show how I shade with a pen.

1. Draw with light pencil
2. Go over it lightly with pen
3. Use one stroke at a time.

To achieve a basic shading effect (like on the first ballpoint picture) you would mostly do your strokes in one direction,
but you can see here it's much more complex so it would be more like extreame cross hatching.

Also it's key you use the pen lightly, much like a pencil. That way you can build up as you go.

Bic pens (and any other cheap and/or free ballpoints) are all kinds of win.

That's the nice thing about them, they are extreamly cheap, last long and this is what can become of it.

You should really consider showing this to an admin. This deserves a Daily Deviation.

I thought the admin goes through the artwork and chooses?
