This Portrait Will ROCK* Your Face Off With Its Sheer Awesome

Amazing much?

http://i34.************/16a9zz7.jpg


This is a ballpoint pen portrait of everyone's favorite half-zombie Christopher Walken by loyal Geekologie Reader and comic book artist Jesse Starr. It was created in approximately 30 hours with no errors using nothing but black Bic ballpoint pens. Good lookin', Jesse -- I sure as hell could never do that. You see, I'm too prone to making mistakes. I'm looking at you, son. Kidding! But call your sisters in here so I can look at them.

Hit the jump for two more shots of the impressiveness.

Bloody hell, that's perfect. The eyes and area around his mouth is so detailed. As is the rest of the piece, but those bits really stand out. The hand creases are amazingly done as well.

I would actually pay the artist so much money to do a commission. *drools at the awesome talent*

I guess he does the tone (dark gradually to light) using that ball pen as well by smudging it with his finger? Otherwise no waycan a ballpen does a tone by itself.

Good drawing nonetheless. :)

Nah, you can do it. You sort of teach yourself to use different pressures with the pen to create different variations of shades. I've been drawing with pen for about 8 years now, and I can do it a little, just not anywhere near as well as this artist.

I personally think the 'creepy' factor is what makes him even more awesome.
