Doodle: BRB Dreaming by lei-melendres Doodle: BRB Dreaming by lei-melendres
Details
This was a project for TITUS PENS [link]
for their weekly feature of artist who could use their pens
to create amazing artworks. Check out their page!
The features gallery included famous artist from the
Philippines and the artworks were, well you tell me. ;)

To check out the posted feature artwork which is typically
the clean scanned version, click this link -> [link]


Meaning
The title "BRB Dreaming" meant two things, one is that
"BRB" stands for black, red and blue which is the pattern i
used for the lines. This is to portray dreaming and seeing
only 3 colors (which is pretty awesome if it would actually
happen to me
)

The other is the literal meaning which means, be right back,
i'm dreaming. When I draw my works, I get this feeling of
being sucked into my drawings and experiencing it first
hand. That's how i see the complicated flow of lines and
elements i put into it.

The Experience
Honestly, my experience of using ballpoint pens was
terrible. Aside from the limit in thickness wherein you'll have
to draw several lines to create a thick one, strokes wasn't
smooth and i encountered lots of misplaced lines. Due to my
tight schedule, i had to finish this doodle in two days and
i've gotta say, worst experience on doodling yet. The feeling
was like doodling 3 artworks all at the same time without
rests and my hands hurt like they're going to bleed anytime.
(that's why i placed a thumb on the left side that says "i'm
hurt
) mr thumb felt like a rock the next day, i could barely
use it. haha

But i gotta make it clear that the Titus pens weren't the
problem at all, in-fact, if I could rate these pens, I'd put it on
my top three ballpoint pens. The problem really was in the
shortage of time to finish the whole artwork.

Still, this was an experience i'll never forget since the final
artwork was really satisfying, :)

ACTIVITY! This composition features a variety of different characters doing a number of different activities, making it a busy piece that draws your eye and keeps it to unravel and analyse, discover and imagine! The use of three colours pulls the composition together, making it chaotic but central, in keeping that unity of design, you have avoided the common mistake of randomness which leads to dissonance, the death of many a good idea. The different textures in this work should also be commented on, for the flowing lines create a path for your eye to follow, while the spikes and checkers among other graphics make it not completely uniform and break up the sameness.
What do you think?

I'd post a critique, but that would imply I have any idea on how you could progress from there. It feels like you made the most of these three little pens, and the final artwork is probably as close to perfect as you'll ever get with pens.

I mean I'm not into the whole "kawaii" and "swag" stuff, but this here is a finely executed piece of art.

I find ballpoint pens to be really awesome tools for street-sketching because of the pencil-like lines they create and the vibrance of colour if you're using them right. They're great for shading, not so much for work like this where you'd be much more suited to using fineliners, felt tip or brush markers.
Really, they're just the wrong tool for this job : ).
You did really well though- loving the drawing of a pen at the top!

I like the "Dream Machine". It just shows how many possibilities there are. Great message. As for the artwork, I am speechless. The colors blend so well it looks like the 4th of July. Or maybe because today is the 4th of July? Anyways, great talent and doodle.

the best drawing i've ever seen .. i love how you draw the three pens on the top , it's showing how with only three pens and a very big imagination , you can create a whole world where even your dreams can come true , i also loved that dream machine ^^
and also how the three lines getting out of the pens are connected to all the characters somehow <3 , i also thought about it like three pens drawing a road in the dream world with so many stations to land at . but i don't think that's really the main thought of it ^^; ..
it's actually hard to notice every thing in the drawing from the first sight , it's so complicated to explain .
well i'm not as good as you to judge your drawing , but in my opinion it's so so good , i can't find any wrong with it ^^ ..
( i actually wanted to write a critique , but i didn't find much to say , and i've never wrote a critique before :( , i don't know if the whole thing up there is a critique , but i just wanted to share my opinion ^^; )
