Tribal boy - Ballpoint Pen by VianaArts Tribal boy - Ballpoint Pen by VianaArts

Tribal boy - Ballpoint Pen.



Thank you for Faving, Sharing, Commenting and Watching. I greatly appreciate it.



Surrounded by trees, waterfalls and tropical wildlife, in the Amazon rainforst, the Dessana tribe, of which this boy is a member, lives nearly 3,000 miles away from Brazil's capital. It is only accessible by boat from the city of Manaus.

Took 142 hours to finish over a period of 4 months. Lost about 20% quality during scanning (and a lot of colour too).

The size is 30cm x 20cm. 11.8in X 7.8in. A4.

I would like to give special thanks to David Lazar, photographer, for giving me permission to use his photo as reference.
I also used 3 additional references to complete the final drawing.

I always wonder how you end up with a % of quality lost during scanning?

VianaArts Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2018  Hobbyist General Artist
It is just a way I use to 'quantify' the visual loss of quality in a way people can understand. It is not an exact measurement, but if it was it would be very approximately that percentage.

Have you ever taken any kind of close up image to show what an ideal quality would be, even in a small area of your art?  I'm so curious as to what 100% is!  XD

The work you do is absolutely stunning.  Could I just ask exactly what pens you use?  I've never seen ball point pens in such a wide array of colours before.

Thank you. I use Bic ballpoint pens. I only have 8 colours. The array of colours is not that wide.

É tão bom voltar a ver novos desenhos teus!
Esta palete de cor parece ser uma que não surge muitas vezes nos desenhos, o que de certa forma é um exagero, mas as tonalidades de verde estão aqui realçadas de forma brutal :) Stunning piece!
Apetece-me dizer 'Nada menos do que o esperado vindo do VianaArts', mas não! Até o reflexo de luz na pele, na tinta preta na cara! (e que PARECE tinta, e portanto uau). Nunca vai deixar de ser espantoso e um privilégio ver os teus trabalhos 


amazing :)

The absolute level of detail on this is amazing. Hug Heart  The funny thing is that I am also working on a coloured pencil version of this photo too and it is currently in progress.  It is not nearly as amazing as your version, but I hope it will still do the photo justice :)

Thank you. If I had a name for it.. I would call it "improvise" because I use the pen as I see fit for whatever effect I want to achieve.
