Thanks for the comments guys and I am still amazed at this artist's talent, in a class by himself, so to say.
Art fans might I also recommend these 2:

This is one of the artists I watch on dA. (Been a member for about 6 years)

Here's another good one. Bereaved

This guy is incredible. One of the bests artists I've seen in a long time. What gets me
is how productive these guys are. It is such a meticulous process and time consuming that
it surprises me to see such a huge volume of work from them.

I like drawing with pencils too, but my drawings come nowhere near the godliness those works of art. Perhaps I need to get more professional pencils than stupid school pencils, I've never really been able to invest that much money into them. Well I know what I'm saving up for now!


A regular school pencil (like a #2) is about between an HB and a 2B. Considering even a 6B (softer lead, and darker) won't even give you true darks, yes, you'd need different pencils to achieve this (and you'd have to keep sharpening them)....which is no doubt why he uses a drafting pencil.

These pencils aren't too expensive..go to your local craft store (like a Michael's) and you'll find them near the painting and art supplies. The EBONY pencil gives nice darks, but you'd need others for softer shades. Usually even have kits with one of each (plus a real rubber kneaded eraser), for under $10.

The kneaded eraser is another key (kind of like play-doh, that can erase, made of rubber)... It picks up the lead, NOT your paper, and can be used for clearing out lighter places, etc.

I wonder what paper he uses (bristol board vellum perhaps, but one that isn't textured....)???

Hey vxn, thanks for the link, very cool! I'm a big fan of dA too! I agree, the time put into these seems quite laborious. I'd love to watch a time lapse session with one of them, sped up of course.
Thanks for the reply!

Peace,

...ben glenn - yeah, he's wonderful - magical...


...i'm a sorta kinda maybe a little bit of an artist... cant draw worth beans but i'm really good at being messy... never had much of an opportunity to work at a technique until a few years ago when i moved here to take care of my mom (alzheimers)... i tried the realism stuff but i just suck at it... did some geometrics that are okay but nothing outstanding...

...one day (out of sheer exhaustion and the need to run away), i just squirted a bunch of different colors (apple barrel hobby paint, its very loose) on a little hard-back canvas and turned it this way and that way and let it run and blend and the next thing i knew, i had something i really liked... i call it "watching paint run"... you know how when you look at fat fluffy clouds you can see all kinds of things?... thats sort of what my paintings are like... the more you look, the more you see...

...a year or so ago, i found a young man online (cant remember his name) who's doing the same thing but his stuff is far more beautiful than mine... he uses house paint - gotta love him... i'm all for cheap... i'll use anything... dry grits = good texture but cream of wheat is better cuz its finer, lol... and salt - talk about making a mess, lol, but its fun...

...also, found a lady (dont remember her name either, lol) that did watercolors but her trick was to put it outside in a light rain (or she made rain with a sprinkler) and let it diffuse the colors... beautiful stuff... i tried watercolors but it doesnt make me as happy as using cheap hobby paints to make a huge mess, lol...

As an artist this is amazing, the amount of time and patience to make every detail is astounding. It can be done. but what i like is he uses one type of pencil, but he would have to use different types of lead to get the values he makes or he just presses really hard, lol Thanx for the post!

Absolutely breathtaking. thanks for sharing them with us.

I struggle to neatly write my own name, let alone dream of being able to draw anything with a fraction of the beauty he produces.

FLC.

My pleasure

Umm, the Escher gallery I have not seen a thread on(might be a good idea), but here are a couple o links, very cool stuff. We had some large(4x6) posters of these works up in art class and I remember upon gazing at them I experienced a sensation of slowly moving. My brain was not quite sure just how to process that thing.

eschergallery.com...
