Rattlesnake in Ballpoint Pen by ronmonroe Rattlesnake in Ballpoint Pen by ronmonroe
This is my first attempt at ballpoint pen, which is kinda of ironic since I am a co-founder of the Ballpoint Masters [link] ! Although I did use a few references for the pattern of the Diamond back and the anatomy of the snakes mouth, everything else came from my simple little noggin!

Tools: 100% ballpoint pen on smooth bristol.

Here are a few wips if you are interested:

Very impressive, perhaps you could make the rattle movement a bit more blur, but very nice
