Rampant Beard


Well-known member
This is a time-pass 4.5" x 6" pen and ink sketch, using an inexpensive back ink gel pen, and based on a reference photo of a person whose identity I do not know. I had saved the image some time ago, since I found the flowing white beard a challenging subject, and wanted to try it some day. That day arrived a couple of days ago.

Success Balaji. I think it's fun to see if you can do something a little more challenging in pen and ink. Drawing a white beard with a black pen definately qualifies. I love how it came out.
Wow! Such wonderful work, Balaji. We don't know who the gentleman in the reference is, but I'd like to think he'd be very happy with this wonderful rendition of his image! Great stuff here.
