This is so amazing! Since ballpoint pen requires so much pressure control don't you feel that your hand gets numb sometimes? It happens to me.
Anyways, you have my admiration!

Thanks. It used to go numb when I was using a bracelet which was compressing my blood vessels. Then I started avoiding tight clothing and any bracelets and it went away. Some positions may also make your hand numb, for example if your arm is raised al the time (depending on where and how you draw). Some people hold the pen really tightly, this can also cut the blood flow to some fingers and make them numb. I try to hold the pen lightly.

Mmmmm, I think I see now why it happens to me, I'll try to fix the way I use my pen, maybe I'm holding it too tight. Yes, I might get too tense unconsciously since ballpoint pen is kind a little unforgiving.  
Thank you for the advice!

I have to be truthful and say that the color kind of throws me, Maybe   but outside of my personal view on the color of the subject the piece is as all of your others are: Phenomenal in every aspect.

Oh my goodness, this is too beautiful! It's amazing how much depth you were able to create with a ballpoint pen! The eyes are especially captivating!
