The picture shown was drawn by Juan Fransisco Casas using a few 14p BIC ballpoint pens. Most of his ideas for drawings come pictures he has taken during nights out with friends. This drawing, which uses liquid media, because it is done with pen and paper, shows looks extremely realistic. The man's facial hair as well as the hair on his head looks so real. The folds and wrinkles in his shirt also give the image a realistic look. The artist used different values to show shading around his forehead and glasses. This choice of media seems to be perfect because he used such intricate detail. I don't think it would have looked as realistic if another type of media was used, for example charcoal or crayons. The pen gives the image a smooth, natural tone and the blue highlights of the pen kind of give the drawing more depth.
