The Child - Ballpoint Pen


The Child - Ballpoint Pen.

This drawing took me 8 months to complete. I had little available free-time because of work and you know, life in general.
Based on instagram @hitanvir 's niece photo for the face. Everything else is created from several different references.

Took almost exactly 150 hours to finish over a period of 8 months. Lost about 20% quality during scanning.

The size is 25cm x 25cm. 9.8in X 9.8in.

Thank you for faving and watching.

Absolutely delightful.  It is so realistic, and I am totally blown away by the fact that you did this ballpoint pen.  The eyes are so very expressive!

Hello VianaArts! I have seen your ballpointpen art job  and I have to say that it seems very good. I would like to know where you get the references for your work, as it is difficult for me to find.
Regards my friend!

This one was made up from several references. From scratch. Usually I contact people around DA for some references.
