Portrait sketch with ball pen.

in Sketchbook2 months ago (edited)


Inspiration -
Simplicity lies in the portrayal of natural expressions made by unique individuals, such was my driving force when I first started sketching portraits. This capture is quite simple from all the other images. The simple gesture made by individuals is the hardest to capture. Therefore, this portrait was one of the hardest to sketch in terms of hatching and play of light and dark, while at the same time, easier in terms of one focus point and less fillers or diversion from the main focus.

Art Type -

Materials Used -

  • Sketchbook
  • Ballpoint pen
  • Subject

Tips -

  • Visualize, align and outline your sketch at the beginning.
  • Start with a pencil sketch to make your hand flexible, then move on to an ink sketch.
  • Play with darkness and light to suit the painting's tone.
  • Portrayal of light and dark shades are also significant in determining the position of light and also makes the portrait more alive.
  • Plan ahead of time how you will project your edges.
  • In sketching, edges determine the value of the painting.

Difficulties -
