Siblings - Ballpoint Pen by ronmonroe Siblings - Ballpoint Pen by ronmonroe

I would like to thank sikaris sikaris.deviantart.com/ for this awesome reference photo

Tools: Bic ballpoint pen on smooth bristol

Here are a few wips if you are interested:

This is absolutely the best well detailed, enchanting, mermerizing, bueatiful and breath taking piece I've ever came across. Your detailed are perfect, and your concept meets the eyes. I instantly knew what this was and god might I say it's more stunning then the picture itself. You evaluated everything and anything that was showed in the image very well. You're shading was marvelous and I couldn't find a single mistake. I applaud you on this piece. This made my day by far and I would love to buy the print when it's available. This was amazing. Thanks very much Ronmonroe

This is absolutely amazing! This is so visually stunning and the fact that you use ball point pen is just incredible. I cannot get over the amount of detail you put into it, and the shading is just right! I have to admit, I am a huge fan of tigers...bias or not, I am blown away by this art! What a great job!! It is so cool that you took some pictures of each stage of this work too. Fantastic! Bravo! I will be adding you to my watch list and also adding this piece as a favorite for sure!

Thanks. This drawing is actually me second attempt. The first one I was about 1/3 of the way done and  I messed up on the water. I tried to cover it up with acrylic paint but it didn't help,... I had to start all over. I have probably about 100 hours in both  drawings (combined).

Cool image. Dig how the constellations mirror the movement of the water and compliment the tiger's pose. :sun::skull:

Thanks! But actually those "constellations" are suppose to be water splash! Like I said, this was very difficult for me and I didn't have a clue on how to draw water like this! I guess that's why we practice.
