1: NOT BEING ABLE TO USE A RUBBER
This mean that you concentration has to be higher. This is great therapy as your focus will at an all time high
2: YOU DON’T NEED TO SHARPEN YOUR PEN
This is very time efficient and great for sketch on the go. You don’t need to take so many things with you. Like the rubber, sharpener etc.
3: BEING ABLE TO CREATE MULTIPLE TONE
Again you don’t need to get a pack of pencils to create light to dark. You can now do it with this simple tool.
4: LOSE THE FEAR OF MAKING MISTAKES
When you realise that mistakes are a part of the journey and that you are only sketch, the fear of making a mistake start to fade away the more you do it. This is something that has really made me a better freehand artist.
5: THE BALLPOINT PEN DOES NOT SMUDGE
I feel like this is one of the best things about the ballpoint pen. Not having to worry about smudging and getting ink all over your work.
MORE THAN JUST A PEN
