Just read an article on an artist named Samuel Silva.

Although he uses may mediums the article focused on his ballpoint pen artwork. Thats right, the same ballpoint pens you buy at the newsagent.

I have included a couple of samples of his work as well as a link to the original article, but I would like you all to not only comment but post some of your favorite artwork.

if you go to his site he said it took something like four pens just to do the background. It's pretty much photorealistic

If you go to his site he explains his processes, 6 different coloured pens and alot of time.
I was so impressed I wanted to share it with you guys :)

I think that artist might be lying then. I don't think you can get that kind of color and tones with ballpoint pens.

Looks like he used acrylics or oils to me.

Either way it's still great work.

At first I thought the same thing, but after reading up on the artist, I think It's legit.

Having never seen the work in person, having never seen anything comparable, I can't be sure, But as you said either way it's fantastic work
