Well, first off, if you are using low-quality ballpoint... don't.
I use eithe A.) Art Pens. They a=come in all thicknesses for any size drawing, ect. .5, .7, 1, 3, 5, and the list goes on.
But, since I usually don't carry them around, I use fine point rolling ball gel pens... they are Pilot Precise V5 or V7 (V5 is smaller and better to get all the details)
When I'm in school and I doodle on index cards, these are the pens that I work with.
Maybe this will help?
If there was a Stickam up we could go more in depth >.>

lol I use the v5 when I'm on the go and don't have the proper supplies with me. The pen is rather cheap, but very effective. The colors are nice and strong, and the blacks are black

I have found some "Black" pens to actually produce a very very dark blue or purple....

It's kind of cool to see others using the same tool,

So do I. I stopped for a while because they used to smudge but I found some that don't.

Yeah. The pens cost (where I live) $18 for 12 pens. Sometimes they can get bitchy, and I have to wait a couple of hours before I can pick it back up again (this usually happens when I leave it open, and I think the ink on the rolling ball dries and the ball gets stuck, idk). But mostly they are loyal and trustworthy.
I usually use the v7 when I'm doodling on a large piece of paper or filling in sections of black, and I don't want to waste my v5's xD

I have found some "Black" pens to actually produce a very very dark blue or purple....

I hate when that happens. Thats why I can never bring myself to buy the cheap rolling ball ones. The ink comes in a dark grey, but you can tell it isn't near black.
They make alright when you actually want to shade your piece though because the ink will get thinner and lighter as you decrease the pressure.

I have a sharpie pen but I don't recommend it. Like the v7, I use it for shading large areas of black. Unless they have some crazy fine point that I don't know of, the lines will bleed and be tooo think to make anything out when drawing small. :/

On another note, Happy Thanksgiving to alll of you in America ;)
I won't be back till Monday so until then, ciao!

Although I don't recommend Ball points either, I have gotten some good pictures and effects from time to time. But you really have to find a good one. I'm partial to Zebra pens since they work pretty well.

I had the worst thanksgiving ever. My daughter caught pink eye from her brother who had it a week ago, my son caught the flu from my daughter who had it a week or so ago, my food was cold because my daughter wouldn't sit down and stop running around the resturaunt my in laws decided to have thanksgiving at, my husband is being a JERK and I'm seriously thinking of leaving him, and everyone was staring at me the entire time(no doubt thinking about how fat I got). I hate the holidays.

I hate it when you plan on going to bed at 1am but then you zone out and when you come to it's nearly 2:30am.

Also, happy birthday Peglay.

Juxtapoz.com

Yeah Juxtapz is pretty spiffy, I haven't read it in awhile but it's nice and oriented toward the contemporary artist. WAY back in 8th grade my art teacher told me about Juxtapoz but the nudity/sexuality of a lot of the work was a bit much for me at the time.

Good news on the stolen wireless, lol.
