Stillness 02 - Ballpoint Pen Artwork by LopezLorenzana Stillness 02 - Ballpoint Pen Artwork by LopezLorenzana
14 x 11.5 inches
Pilot ballpoint pen on Bristol vellum paper

In this particular piece I explored the moment when the mind goes so silent and blank, that there is a sense of starting to disappear. This is why I resorted into going with very high contrast with her hair, but very little contrast with the model's skin and the background. This way I intended to focus on her expression while at the same time offer a sensation of being pulled by a silent and luminous vacuum. I hope to have conveyed this feeling well enough in this piece.

Model: Erin Shea [link]

to make such a photorealistic drawing with just a balpoint pen makes you a true artist, it is incredible what you can do with only a balpoint pen, I cant imagine where you got al the patience from to draw this with pen ;)
anyways, excellent job!

Wow. I think that looks like the best yet. Your touch with the pen seems even more subtle. I love the way you capture the water droplets in all their detail.

School holidays here so I have been immersed in family stuff for the last week or so. I'm working ona study of one girl called Ellie who is particularly courageous. Nearly finished but I'm struggling with it a little. Can't seem to find my drawing head! I seem to be wearing a different one :( x
