Yes, such a detailed raven has to be lots of work - and then also with a ballpoint pen...
You're ballpoint pen art is really unbelievable!

That is beautiful! Thank you for telling me. I honestly had no idea my photo ended up on Tumblr, lol. I appreciate what you did. Love how you crafted it as well. The line work is impeccable. I will never be able to do that so I'll stick with my camera.

Thanks once again!

Cheers.

Nice. I used to do those "ballpoint pen" drawings. But the lack of erasing possibility is a hard con. But it allows a gain of time as you don't have to sketch and then use black pencils/inkers afterwards.

I like working with them, they teach you to be sure of your lines. I think this is actually a pretty rewarding medium.
Pencils make you go lazy after a certain among of time, as you can fix mistakes pretty easily.
I like the challenge of ballpoint pens. :D

You're absolutely right. But in any case, you have to be pretty accurate. Eraser only make up for so much. It doesn't replaces the accuracy of your lines =)

It amazes me that so many beautiful and detailed things can be done in pen.
I'm more of a pencils and charcoal person.

Working with a ballpoint pen can be tricky, but it will teach you just as much. I love working with them.
