Pencil Drawing Art

Postby wolfhnd on December 16th, 2014, 4:21 pm 

I was looking for examples of critters that made art and came across this article on pencil drawings.

My first reaction is that it was not ART but a type of photography that used skill with a pencil instead of film. But then I realized that photography can be art.

Anyway really cool.

I'm a sucker for hyperrealism with simple media. Really liked them.

looking through these I realized the obvious. "They are all black and white." That makes sense if they are regular pencil.
I looked again, there is one with a blood hood. Maybe blue pencil?
Anyway. More interesting is when I was looking a 3rd time wondering if I was seeing color in some of the faces, or it ended up being an optical illusion. My mind knows that faces have color, so it naturally paints them in color.
Looking a forth time I think the faces that have more color to me, are the ones that are most familiar from people I may have seen or known in the past. The people that are unfamiliar looking to me are the most black and white because I wonder if perhaps since I don't recognize them as easy, I can not match them to being a certain race that has a certain color skin.

For another example, the rhino looks very black and white to me, and I think that is because rhinos are grey and I assume in my mind that they would make great black and white photography partially because of that.

I vaguely recall studies done on this and I assume there are countless. I also recall a study one where people listened to voices and could not determine if a person talking was black or white, or whatever the politically correct terms are.

They're so realistic, your mind does want to put in the colour. But, some, especially the portraits, have the mood and feel of B&W photographs, which makes them even more interesting.

With a camera, you can have poor lighting or composition, but accuracy is unavoidable. "Merely" reproducing reality with a pencil is very, very difficult and takes years of patient observation and practice.
These artists all have a terrific amount of skill.

There are probably many videos and books out there, but I started watching this one and find it interesting to watch learning about all the different parts of black and white pencil drawing shadows and lighting. Also learning the steps in which some people draw.
