Joyride by Liorart Joyride by Liorart
Medium: Ballpoint pens. They're all very, very dead, and very very broken. A few of them are just sort of shooting out bursts of ink when I try to use them, and the rest are just...inkless. Poor pens.
It took...12 days? I'm not really sure.

I started drawing with ballpoints during school and I liked them so I drew something big with them. If I can get them to scan properly, I'll try and upload the other pictures.

The title is totally irrelevant. :P

I hope Deviantart doesn't resize it.
E: Shit, it did. Try downloading it for a better view.
Edit again: Tones and shadows and darkness and everything fixed so now it's not so washed out.

Woah, Tank.

Love it. :D Especially the octopus at the bottom. Ha-ha.

I totally understand 'bout dead ballpoints. I've been using mine heaps lately and the tips are all stuffed up and they're drying out heaps. Just bought a new packet though. So expensive. D:

Yay. ^-^

I was kind of disappointed. One of them was brand new, too. I went through all the drawers in the house looking for more, and most of them were just empty. All they did was press down on the paper. xP
Since when were ballpoints expensive, though? It's like two dollars for a pack of a million, isn't it?

Lol, I read ballpoint as fineliners for a second there.

They can get pretty expensive though if you're looking for the thinner points though. I like the thinner points. =(

Ha, I can imagine those being really expensive.

I just used the ones from staples. Cheap in every way. :D

Yeah, $25 (Australian) dollars a packet for 0.1, 0.2,0.3,0.4, 0.5,0.8. And then they die the first time you use them. Ha-ha.

Staples? Never heard of it.

That is expensive.

Never heard of STAPLES?! O_o I guess it must only be an american chain then. It's like, the ultimate office supply store. That's where you get school supplies and office supplies and calculators and laptops and spinny chairs and drawers and stuff. And cheap packs of ballpoint pens.

Haha, yesss. I drew it too dark I think. xP It's something like 14x17, I think. However large one of the large pads of bristol board is.

wow, that's really large O.O i don't know if it's too dark, it's something i haven't seen done with ball-point before, so i think it's really commendable!
