  1. Default Colress and the Ballpoint Pen


    I made this account and decided to introduce myself yesterday. Some people wanted to see what else I draw, so..
    Pokemon in Ballpoint!

    And here's a display of the small scale of my drawings. I used to fill the whole 8.5x11" paper, but most of my drawings are now just small doodles.


    Oh, how I wish I could make some money off of doing what I like! However, I lack confidence in my abilities and I'm no good at reaching out to others, so.. -Enjoy the fail that is my current art-

    Ballpoint pen has got to be the most fun medium to draw with. Your stuff is wonderful! I love the shading. I know how you feel about the lack of confidence in your abilities, I suffer very badly from that myself. :|

    I find it ironic you lack confidence yet you're using a medium where you're unable to erase ― you're making confident lines and that's a pretty big step already~!

    Your artwork is great though, it's very nicely shaded and the Pokemon are readily recognizable. Look at that cute Bulbasaur!

    That Milotic is fantastic, I love the shading of your work and like Raizoo said, even if you lack confidence yourself, your work really shows confidence itself.

    Register an account on furaffinity, post some samples of your work, and offer clean portraits for eight bucks a pop.

    Good friend of mine did that, no I'm not naming names, and brings in around an extra eighty or so a week on a good run.
    Plus working with different styles is great practice.

    Furries love giving artists money. Its somewhat of a creepy fandom, but goddamn do they have disposable income.

    Same concept applies to deviantart, but people kinda act like plantains on there.

    ^ Not really interested in that subject and wouldn't be willing to get paid for drawing something I'm quite uncomfortable with, unfortunately.
    Today's feature is some old work.

    Awww yeah, traditional AND a pen user. You're A-OKAY in my books.

    I've seen your work on Basil, so this may sound old to you.

    Awesome! There's something I really like in the way you shadow with a ballpoint pen.

    Nice to see more artists here in SP~ Welcome!

    Actually, this isnt too bad of an idea. I know of two people that do stuff like this (one is a furry himself, and makes costumes for people, another is a girl that works doing a lot of commissions), and I know that they make pretty decent side money. You may even be able to work mostly with humanized pokemon, who knows.

    I think Shaymin must be one of my favourite Grass Pokemon so you automatically win for posting such a cute drawing.
