Ballpoint pen is just a normal stationary item for many, but in the hand of skillful artist, it turned to the ultimate artistic tool. A Ukraine based artist, Andrey Poletaev’s created a series of Cityscapes which highly required technical skill and sharp eyes on composition. The self-taught artist mentioned most of them took about 200 and 300 hours. To get her desired depth, light and contrast, she works with as many as 10-20 layers of monochrome ink. Poletaev is also kind enough showing us some of her drawings layer by layer, from start to finish.
