Tiger Eyes - Ballpoint Pen by VianaArts
Tiger Eyes - Ballpoint Pen

Tiger Eyes - Ballpoint Pen on paper.



I only had 3 days left on my holidays so I decided to draw just the eyes area.

Took aprox. 10 hours to finish over a period of 3 days. Lost about 30% quality during scanning.

The size is 11 cm x 5 cm. Very small.

Other wips: sta.sh/0kab8ft93po

Thank you for faving and watching.

First drawing I ever did just looking at my Galaxy S3´s screen, the paper was on top of a book on my knees (I´m on holiday and used what I had, the pens and paper).. Much tougher than I thought but I enjoyed the challenge.


Took aprox. 30 hours to finish over a period of 20 days.  Lost about 30% quality during scanning.

The size is aprox. 20cm x 11cm.

Thank you for faving and watching.

I'm just a self taught patient hobbyist person.

I've always been interested in drawing, sculpting and painting since I was 2 years old.

I started drawing and developing my own style of ballpoint pen drawing back when I was in school, in simple classroom sketches in the back of my exercise books. I never imagined there were so many brilliantly masterful ballpoint artists out there.

Ballpoint pen is not my only medium, it's just the one I'm currently trying to master. At this point in my life I'm fairly proficient with chalk, pencil, color pencil, pastels, oils and acrylics. Maybe one day I'll create an account just to share those.

I'm just glad to be here, I want to learn a lot, see a lot, and enjoy to its fullest what other fellow artists have to share.

It takes me forever to do my works. The only thing that makes me keep going is my love for what I do and the ambition to go further and further.

Ballpoint pens are as underestimated as they are a powerful medium.
A ballpoint pen is just another art tool. A tool is only as powerful as the Artist who uses it.

It's not about what you use, it's about how you use it.

Hi there, Samuel!  I just dropped by to say (and I'm pretty sure you hear or read this all the time, but what the hell?) that I'm a big fan of your works, and your pieces are basically one of the reasons why I started doing ballpoint pen art last year. So keep those ballpoints busy and continue amazing and inspiring people!  Wishing you all the best. :D

Your work is phenomenal Samuel.  I have question. I'm surprised with the white, is there an opaque white ink that I'm unaware of or are you preserving the white of the paper or surface your work is done on? If so, what method do you use to preserve the white .
Amazed fellow artist.

Hi. Thanks. I just use the white of the paper itself and draw around it. Requires planning ahead though.

You're probably asked this all of the time, sorry, but how long does it take you to create a piece? How long would you say it took you to develop your current skill level?
