Red Wine part 2 - Bic pens by 6re9 Red Wine part 2 - Bic pens by 6re9
Here is the second of three (or four depending if I've had enough of drawing the same picture) of the same picture using different media. This second uses only red and black Bic ball-point pens.

Wow, I can almost hear the sound of the wine as it sloshes into the glass. I especially love the thumbnail image of this. Looks so much like a photo. Great job! :thumbsup::)

Everyone seems to be drawing black and white pictures of water in glass using graphite, so I thought I'd try something different.

Bic pens??? It's imposible, they only serve to write faults in the exams.

That is amazing!! Both versions! You are to be especially commented for the glass - it's balanced out. I don't see how you have so much control over a silly little Bic pen. There are differenct shades of black, wow!!

Brilliant!!! :iconbummy1::iconbummy2::iconbummy3::iconbummy1::iconbummy2::iconbummy3::iconfireworks2plz:

Thanks. Getting the ellipse and the curves balanced was done using a grid and a simple pencil outline otherwise there is always a detectable fault when done via freehand - our eyes are too good at discerning symmetry.

Oh my gosh, such great use of ballpoint pens. I keep on meaning to experiment with multiple ballpoint pen colors myself. This is very inspiring to me!

You're welcome. I've never worked with bic pens. I don't know how you did that!

Try drawing lots of tight, parallel lines whilst holding the pen very lightly and then cross-hatch part of the same pattern. You can get quite different shades.
