  • courtney

    words cannot describe my envy of this talent right now. dang.

  • crazy beautiful.

  • Seriously Awesome, a ball point pen!

  • Pete

    He’s like a printer the way he shades a draws WOW

  • That’s some great talent. It makes me wonder how much study has gone into anatomy to draw with that type of skill especially with such a strict medium. I suppose the fluidity and viscosity of the ink in the ballpoint pens also does help. The talent is pure skill though.

    You rock! Words are not enough.
    Now I need to Google and see what other artwork the artist has done.

  • Oh my GOD!!!! That’s brilliant! Ballpoint pen! I’ve already tried drawing shades like that with ballpoint pen but it’s almost impossible to reach such level of perfectionism.

    I wish I could have this talent.
    Very well done, congratulations Paul Alexander Thornton!!! Thumbs up!
