Fun with a ballpoint pen


I had a really busy week and didn’t have much time in the evenings to sketch so I spent a little bit of time each night working on this ballpoint pen self portrait. My mom (who is an amazing artist) gave me me a quick tutorial on Facebook on how to draw faces so I tried to use some of what she mentioned but still can’t seem to get it right. I do fine when I work on one side, but then the other side looks a bit wonky.  But no worries. I’m having fun trying! 🙂

Also still trying to work out how to use highlights.


(there was a glob of green paint from the previous page that made it’s way on to this page. That’s what you see on the forehead)
