Quick sketch with the old black Bic pen.
Reference photo: RedditGetsDrawn! I have a choice of photos of my wife to be...please can you draw her for our anniversary?
Another quick sketch in ballpoint. Really tough to keep the shading in check with a ballpoint.

Sketch with Bic ballpoint.
Reference photo: Please draw me! Most recent pic of my new hair and feeling sexxay!
Ballpoint sketch. The shadows are a tad on the harsh side. Should have probably held back on that.
Reference photo: I got all dressed up for this event and I ended up with just this one blurry photo. Please excuse my unintentional resting bitch face.

Quick sketch with a Bic ballpoint pen. Didn't put too much effort in rendering the hair because I just didn't have the time. Actually, no, I just didn't want to possibly mess things up.
Reference photo: I would love to see this old photo of my mom drawn!

Ballpoint pen sketch. I actually don't mind blurry pictures. If the likeness is not there, then it's no big deal.
Reference photo: All I want for Christmas is to be krumpus.. Can someone draw me, please! :)
Mostly ballpoint sketch. I dug out the old washable marker for the hair (less work on the pen).

Loose scribble-style sketch executed with a Bic pen. Love to do those.
Reference image: Hi Reddit! My grandfather is a cartoonist. I found this picture of him drawing for a friend he met in India while stationed there during World War 2. I would love to see what you guys can do with it!
Here's an animated gif thanks to depthy.me:

Ballpoint portrait sketch. I went for a clean look with tight line work. It's about as clean as it's gonna get since I have a tendency to restate a lot and dilute the lines. Remember that this is a ballpoint sketch so there's no room for error since you can't erase (Why would you want to erase anyway when sketching?)
Reference photo: This is me from a fun photoshoot. Please draw me? :)
Sketch in ballpoint pen. There is supposed to be some hair there but didn't have the guts to do it.
Reference photo: Would anyone like to draw me and my colourful hair?

Quick ballpoint sketch.

I drew a rudimentary depth map in depthy.me and saved the animated gif below. Another nice time waster.

Full disclosure: I had made an earlier attempt, but I made the huge mistake of going a bit crazy with the shading. The shading is not the only problem, just saying. Paper is long gone but scan will be there forever, I think. That's the power of the ballpoint pen. You screw up, you start again because you can't erase, and you get something completely different the second time around (slightly better, I think.)
