Stillness 01 - Bic Ballpoint Pen Artwork by LopezLorenzana Stillness 01 - Bic Ballpoint Pen Artwork by LopezLorenzana
My first official painting for the "Bathers" series and my second try at drawing entirely with a blue Bic ballpoint pen. This technique I think could be closely related to sculpting, since there's no way of erasing or undoing. I am really loving this technique and am researching more about it to find out if it's a worthwhile thing to keep doing. Cheers!

8 x 8 inches
Ballpoint on Bristol smooth vellum paper

Outstanding!!!

I can't even use a ball-point pen to sign my name!! This is beyond talent; this is something that dazzles us near mortals!

I love how you captured the sensualness of this scene! It allows the mind to fill in the blanks: what she's thinking, what she's feeling, what she's feeling done to her(!).

The lighting and texture are amazing!! Her hair is outstanding, and the light reflections are SO realistic!

Again, Outstanding!!!

This is some really fine crosshatching. I love the fine textures you achieve in your portraits. You must have a lot of control over your hand :P

Really nicely drawn. There is something to be said about the effects using a Bic Pen. What would the great old masters had they been about in their day????

Wow simply wondeful! Can you give me some guidelines or insight as to how did you do the full-white shining parts (for instance, in the lips, water dripping, etc)? Was it some secondary medium over the pen, or you just accounted for the empty space and never filled in with the pen at all??
And the background, with such bright intensity, is it also some special technique for the pen to trace so brightly or is it just mastered skills in light precision tracing?? 
This is astonishing!!
