The Wise One by TsaoShin The Wise One by TsaoShin
I know this looks like pencil but it was actually done with a ballpoint pen. A lot of the lines are rather rough because it was a beast to shade with but I like how it turned out.

The tinting was done with Adobe Photoshop CS2 after the scan. Credit to Edward S. Curtis for the reference photo.

The shading in this is fantastic, and also great lines and details. Aamazing work you did to duplicate the photo AND do it all with a pen O_O

Shading was a beast, I'm sure... Ballpoint is not an easy medium, and not very forgiving... This came out lovely. The textures also catch my attention

The expression here strikes me as simultaneously noble and sad.
