Alduin in Ballpoint Pen by Ga-Maleven Alduin in Ballpoint Pen by Ga-Maleven
Alduin, the World Eater, property of Bethesda from their game The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Ballpoint pen on bristol paper

So, I was bored and thus took my sister's favorite pen and drew Alduin. I almost drained the pen of all the ink!!! :evillaugh: So, it kind of reminds me of a tribal tattoo. Meh, you want to get this tattooed on your body, fine by me. Just give credit to me. :)

And here's the World Eater himself. I like how Alduin's horns curve like that because they give me the impression of a crown, making his status as the World Eater and lord of dragons that much more clear.

Hmmm, I suppose they do curve into a crown, sort of. He probably should have a few more large spikes on his head to complete the illusion. =P

Some of the best crowns are those that simple. If Alduin's curved horns evoke the image of a crown to me, then they're all that's needed.

Starscream's crown is pretty simple, and yet, elegant.

I have some more in this style if you care to see. :meow: Also, some other pen art that I did while in class. ;) I find pen the easiest medium to work with, thus doing almost all my concept art in it. Have so much control while giving all the needed details. :) Also depends on the type of pen. Cheaper pens are best for the artwork that I have done my concept art in, with making values, etc. while those pens that bleed ink heavily are best for this type of style. :)

I used to work with pens quite a bit years ago, but I never could get into THAT level of detail with the things. Can't help but be impressed.

Sounds like I have a whole gallery to look into then. ^^ Will do that presently!

Just need some practice, is all. :) You get the hang of things after several drawings with certain mediums.

Yes, lots and lots of artwork to go through! ;) The albums labelled "... Concept Art and Artwork" are filled with art for my stories, so a lot of pen concept art is in those. Some of that concept art is older or done fairly quickly so is not the greatest. And, that's probably only 2 thirds of all the concept art I've ever drawn for my stories. I have  a lot more that I have not uploaded to this site. =P

Wow. I don't understand how you even *can* draw something like this with a ballpoint pen. How on earth do you prevent it from smudging?

:iconga-maleven:
Ga-Maleven Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2013  Student General Artist
Ballpoint pen in my opinion is the easiest medium to work with. So much control you can do more details. :meow: And, to keep it from smudging I just make sure I do not touch it until it is dry. Usually work from the left side to the right (if right handed) to ensure no smudging of artwork for any medium, but I am terrible at following rules. When you work with a certain medium for a while you "understand" it and can just be all like "whatever" with it and still not mess up. I am very bad about being all "whatever." I really should be more careful... I'm not the best artist in the world and I'm trying hard to improve, but as long as I get the feeling of the mediums I work with, I'm on the right track to being a great artist. :)

Wow that's a lot of detail DX
I stick with more cartoonish styles which don't require a lot of detail.

I prefer simple animations (Like my cheesy icon) over detailed drawings

I love details!!!! :XD: I want to be a creature concept artist for the movie and gaming industries, so I have to be pretty good with details for animals, such as muscles, scales, spikes, fur, claws, eyes, etc. So, I work a lot with biologic details and try to improve my skills with them. I'm not the best, but I'm getting better. :)

Everyone has their own styles. I'd rather be good at cartoon animations before getting into big details :)

Yeah, especially if you want to get a job at a cartoonish or only do art for a hobby, then you don't have to push yourself "as hard" to be all "good" with art. =P I've worked so much on my realism that I honesty am bad with cartoonish style art. :/ Maybe I just haven't figured out a style that I like... I have my quick sketch style, but that is still realism, just without as much detail.

Why would anyone want that as a tattoo? Maybe a less elaborate version or less compact version, but not this version.
