James Mylne: Audrey Hepburn In Ballpoint Pen

Advanced, Drawing, Pen, Watercolour | 20 Oct, 2012

This is a very unique and fantastic drawing of movie icon Audrey Hepburn. The back ground has been spray painted in a flat light blue whilst the detailing of the face has been constructed in black ballpoint pen. The tone within the face, jacket and hat has had watercolor detailing to leave an extremely realistic and professional look. Very nice picture as I’m sure you will agree.

    1. I’ve been trying to use ballpoint pens for some work and I could never seem to get it to look as smooth as yours! How are you able to achieve such lightness with the pen? I find that that is the most difficult part when you have a really light subject. Also, how do you avoid getting those big blobs that come out randomly? Your advice would help sooo much!

    2. Great blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely confused .. Any recommendations? Appreciate it!

    3. Love your work, truly inspirational – I love that you cover your drawing with a scribbly bit of paper as you work, just like me (there the similarity ends I’m afraid!)A question – do you cover every bit of paper with some degree of pen or do you leave some bits blank white paper? I can’t tell whether you’ve used very light pen or not on the ‘highlights’ of Audrey’s face.Thanks 🙂

    4. The quality of the pen is also important. Unfortunately here is the US all our Bic Biros “Cristal” are made in Mexico not France. I wouldn’t mind this so much but the pens don’t produce as subtle a shading as with the French made versions.

    5. Wow!!! I also like a bic to draw with but you take it to a whole new level, man! I admire your patiants so much….but had to turn off the sound on this video! Bet you like to scratch your nails on a blackboard if you really liked that “music”!

    6. Can you watch my Portrait Drawing #5, I know I am doing something completely wrong…people keep complaining about the “splotches of ink” on their paper but I have the complete opposite…when i apply VERY LITTLE PRESSURE, nothing comes out!, I am forced to push a little harder and nothing comes out. I would have to scratch on another paper to get ink out.Can you link me to the exact type of pen? Mine doesn’t have “medium” on the side. but it looks like the same type of pen you are using!
