Yes, I know this is not doodling. This is drawing (by Tokyo based artist SHOHEI) taken to a whole new level. I've never seen detail and shading done like this using only a ball point pen. Simply amazing. Watch it three or four times, and then share it with everyone you know.

Oh and I strongly suggest you watch this in full screen mode.

Those are incredible! I love using ball point pens too. I don't think they get enough props, hehe :D

I love a black biro too...the potential for a random splodge is hard to beat.
