I smell a remake of that classic Budweiser commercial... "WHASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSUP?!" :headbang:

That aside, the attention to detail is stunning, and a great way to capture something similar to stunned surprise.

Find it hard to believe you did it all with ballpoint pen, that must've took hours to do! And it shows, with the supreme work done on the hair, the face and the mouth in particular.

Amazing job, mate! Keep up the wonderful work. :clap:

how do you work out what colours to blend? I assume you have a small selection of ballpoints and then you blend them to get the right colours on the paper.... I've always striggled with this aspect of multi-colour ballpoints. I think the only drawing I've ever submitted to DA was one with very distinct, primary colours that needed no blending.
