Ben by ronmonroe Ben by ronmonroe
Ole Abe [link] was so polular (popular for me at least) I thought I'd give him a friend.
Both of these drawings were extremely time consuming and I probably won't do anything this crazy for awhile!

tools: 0.1 art pen, white gel pen

How did you use the white gel pen? For the highlights? This one's ridiculously cool.

I mainly use a gel pen for minor mistakes (and yes, I make a lot) It will cover up a little, but I try not to rely on it at all. In a perfect world, I wouldn't even need it. Sometimes it also helps when doing the white tips of, for example, hair.

Huh. That's a good thought, using it to cover up small flaws. I've never thought of that one. I'll remember that :)

What's an art pen, Ron?
Reply
:iconronmonroe:
ronmonroe Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
It's similar to a ball point pen or technical pen. I use a Faber Castel 0.1 mainly but they are 0.3, 0.5, 0.8. I really like the way it looks.

Thanks! Ya, I haven't a clue on how they pick the DDs. Some I see (mine included), I believe aren't deserving. And other artist (including you)are well deserving. Here's an example of an artist that should have about 5:[link] Be patient, your DD will come!

Yeah i know. I follow franco ,he has so many great artworks.

Some people should be getting daily deviantions all of the time

I dont think i will ever get a dd and i dont mind it....but i would love to get more viewers and thats why i said i wished i would get a dd.

The highest amount of viewers for my drawings is around 500 views
It brings a lot of joy if i see a comment and they say it made them happy etc.
Thats why i make my drawings...to put a smile on peoples faces(thats also why i do free requests)

I see you are a member of a lot of groups. I think, unless you have over 1,000 watchers, you really need to submit your work to as many groups as you can. I see works with over 1-2 hundred comments and are only in a few groups, but they have thousands of watchers. I don't have many watchers, so I have to submit to as many as I can!

Yeah i know... i need to spend more time on "promoting" but you know...... its time consuming and then i start to think "heck i can use that time to draw something" ....but you are right i need to get my stuff in groups.

Is there a message in these?

I'm not sure of the time but well over 40 hours. No message, I just got the idea when a friend of mine kept saying my drawings were "Banknote quality", so..... I drew some banknotes!
