I Create Hyperrealistic Pencil Drawings Of Animals (19 Pics)


I'm a self-taught artist living in Iowa, creating hyperrealistic animal artwork. For as far back as I can remember, I would draw animals and cartoon characters, which both of my grandmas would hang on their fridges. I checked out book after book from the library that taught you different drawing techniques. I taught myself how to draw, although I do credit, my grandma, for my artistic abilities. ​She herself was an artist and I always say that I inherited my talents from her.


Here are some of the drawings I made. My flamingo took me 42 hours to complete, the lynx took 32 hours to complete and my whitetail buck took 63 hours to complete. You can see more of my work on social media (links are down below).
