The fact that he freehands this without any reference points, is just amazing. I have to use a light grid over the photo and the paper, just to be
sure I'm getting the proportions right...because if you are even slightly off on a person, it will not look like them. (you can see this in his Adele
drawing, which while impressive, isn't the same caliber as his other work....no doubt due to him spending far less time on it.)
Its very nice work and I'm sure most people would struggle to get this amount of detail, but when drawing in monotone pencil it is somewhat
easier to produce these results. The addition of colour is a whole other ballgame though.
No doubt. I would not yet ever be able to achieve the same degree of realism in a color painting or drawing, as I can in black and white...no
