Usually, the Pilot ballpoint is my go-to for drawings. But I parked that and, instead, used the Pilot Metropolitan fountain pen for inking. Watercolor is Prang Glitter. Flesh tone is J. Herbin "Lie de The" ink. Sailor brush pen for detail on colors. This is a portrait of Lenny Kravitz.

That is really good! Really really good.  How long did it take you and what ink did you use?

Thanks! This took me a span of two (2) days, on and off. I used Parker Quink black. :)

AWESOME DUDE !!!!!! Love it. and I love the fact that you did it with a $18.00 pen and parker ink... Just goes to show, that talent can perform with any tools!!! and you don't need a $800 dollar FP and a $35.00 bottle of ink ....

 

by the way... what paper do you use!!!

Thanks! I used a budget-friendly Berkeley watercolor paper, the kind that comes spiral-bound with perforations for tearing out. :)

Yep, amazing talent! I'm always blown away by people who know how to really create. Your Pilot Metropolitan definitely is put to better use than mine. :)

Oh my, that is nice. I'm going to have to talk to my Metropolitan. I think it's been slacking on me.

 

Also, in addition to the art, loved your use of "parked that".

How did I miss this thread before now?

This is amazing work.  One technical question: what's the finish on the paper: hot press or cold press?  I'm not familiar with Berkeley papers.

About the paper, I have no idea what sort of press it was. Just a ring-bound sketch pad off the shelves at a local bookstore. :)

Love it. What a talent! (Yours, I mean, not Lenny Kravitz, who is probably also talented.)
