Here is a drawing created with Sakura gelly roll metallic pens on 300 lb. Fabriano paper.
It is 3.75"x6."
Critiquing is welcome.

Sweeet!! I bet this looks awesome with the right light on it. Freaky freaky tree. :) OR a tree that accidently got a little bit of a shock and it's hair is totally freakin. :)

What a cool looking tree. Looks like he stuck his root in a light socket..hehehe. I agree with the others, I bet this look really great in real life with all the sparklies. Gel pens are so neat.

Hi Axl, Mel, Danny, Sharon, Orchid, Chris and Monica,

Thank you all for looking and commenting.
Unfortunately the drawing doesn't look like it was created with metallic pens.

Only the silver colored pen produces a beautiful sheen.

Pretty. I've seen this same type of trees before here on WC! - was it in acrylics? Can't really remember, are you the same one who did those? I guess I remember the paintings before I remember the names of the artists... :rolleyes:

I think it is fantastic it is a shame that, as artists, we have to go to such extreme measures to protect our work (the signature across the entire picture). Great imagination and colors.

HI captan and Lumina,

Thanks very much for commenting.
I have posted about 12 or more stylistically similar trees throughout the forums of WC.

I am a gel pen addict! I love the way you used the metalics on this one. It would be great to see it in person to get the full effect of all that shine:D

Hi Charissa,
Thanks alot for commenting.

Unfortunately it doesn't shine.

The only color that seems to shine is silver.
