How to Draw a Portrait With Ball-Point Pen

How to Draw a Portrait With Ball-Point Pen


Hello my friends!
And welcome to another Tuesday of tutorial.
I am Leonardo Pereznieto and I am so glad to see you again. Today let´s do a portrait!
And first we mark some measurements of the top of the head
and the height of the eyes. Then the bottom of the chin, a middle line, the width of the face, the position of the mouth and nose, etc. With all these measurements we should get a correct face. I am often told that
I use very strange materials to draw with, so today
I decided to use a regular ball point pen, after finishing
the sketch with pencil. I correct and refine some features,
that´s why we should use pencil at this point. Ok good! Now we start working with pen, an outer darker line for
the iris, the pupil, leaving a reflection
of light to give some life. Don´t do the eyebrows solid,
or they will look unnatural. We do all the shadow with short lines. I love drawing with pen,
it is such a pleasure! To do the hair we do need
some patience since it is a lot of work! But nice work! We darken some areas
of it, to give it volume. Here you have some shots at normal speed. I´ll erase the pencil to clean it up. We do the last touches
and it will be ready. I would like to thank
my gorgeous model Marta, who in addition to beautiful
is also an excellent photographer, I’ll leave you the links for
her websites in the information bellow the video so you can see her work! If you enjoyed it
