The Making of a Jedi

Today I decided to give ballpoint pens a try. First, I sketched out a rough pencil drawing of my favorite Star Wars character, Yoda. Slowly and gently layers of color were scribbled upon each other to make texture, shadows and darker tones.

I had a lot of fun working on this but it took quite a bit of patience to fill in the larger areas. Overall, this took me about 15 hours to complete.
