Ballpoint Pen Icarus by kleinmeli Ballpoint Pen Icarus by kleinmeli
I'm done with it guys, I'm done. *starts to cry*

I will never...NEVER...draw feathers with a ballpoint pen again.
Nearly 30hours of my life are gone and I had to bury 3pens.

Hope you like it...if not, please don't let me know!

You can find a lot more WIPs over on my Tumblr: [link]

Dude... I applaud you. I've tried to work with pens like this without any pencil outlines. It ain't easy, since you mess up a few times until you know how to use them properly. I just adore your work. You've given me hope that pens are possible to work with. :D So far, I can only do this with anime drawings but I really want to draw this realistically someday. It's beautiful. :3
