Rajacenna Draws Celebrity Portraits Rajacenna is an 18-year-old self-taught artist from the Netherlands who draws the most realistic portraits I have ever seen, using only pencils. I’m a big fan of realistic drawings, and I’ve previously featured amazing works like the pencil drawings of Paul Lung, the ballpoint pen portraits of Juan Francisco Casas, or Cristina Penescu’s detailed scratchboard masterpieces, but at only 18 years of age Rajacenna is in a league of her own. Born in 1993, she started modelling for various Dutch companies when she was only 4, and at 5 years old she made her first appearance on television. She only took up drawing in 2009, and although she had never taken any art classes she produced some stunning pieces. When she first started drawing, Rajacenna would complete one of her pieces in about 20 minutes, but the more her skills improved the longer it took her to finish her increasingly detailed masterpieces.

How to learn Blender 3D in under 24 hours | Blender Until the day when desktop holography becomes a reality, 3D will remain the wholly grail of the graphics world. But 3D can be a very technical craft. And each 3D program has its own idiosyncrasies, making it all a bit daunting. I cut my 3D chops on many programs that are now long dead and forgotten. Why choose Blender? Blender has many qualities that include years of steady development, a prized commodity in either commercial or open source projects. For example, Blender has video editing, camera tracking, compositing, and even game creation tools all built right in. Naysayers may complain it lacks centralized support, since there is no commercial publisher with a help staff. The other knock is Blender's much smaller market share, which means there are perhaps fewer companies looking to hire Blender artists. None of this is even an issue if you run your own shop or are just doing your own thing. My first hour with Blender: installing and learning the interface Hour 15 and beyond…

The Doodle Art of Sergei and Vyacheslav Savelyv Sergei and Vyacheslav Savelyv are two twin brothers with an extraordinary talent for doodling. They uses colored pens and pencils to draw what seem like endless circular doodles and create incredibly detailed portraits of world famous icons. Sergei and Vyacheslav Savelyv have so far displayed their wonderful artworks only in their home town of Petrozavodsk, in Russia’s Karelia region, but I think you’ll agree their talent deserves worldwide recognition. The creative duo who works under the name “SaveL” have an impressive doodle portrait portfolio of famous celebrities like Johnny Depp, Robert De Niro or Antonio Banderas, all created with ordinary pens of pencils. Their technique looks a lot like what many of us used to do on the back of our notebooks in school to check is a pen still worked, only their loops form very detailed images. I was able to find their official site (savel-art.ru), but it was down at the time this article was written. Reddit Stumble

Digital Circlism Portraits by Ben Heine Using an original technique he calls Digital Circlism, artist Ben Heine creates detailed portraits of celebrities like Eminem, Bob Marley or Elvis Presley. A Belgian artist born in the Ivory Coast, Heine is most famous for his Pencil vs Camera series, which was covered by many of the major online media outlets, but his Digital Circlism portraits are equally, if not more impressive. Using a sharp round brush in Photoshop CS4, he applies thousands of circles on a black background, until he creates a colorful, realistic portrait. You might think he uses some kind of automated process to apply every circle, but that’s actually the most remarkable thing about Ben Heine – he adds every one of the circles individually. A new technique, developed by Ben Heine himself, Digital Circlism could certainly develop into an important artistic movement. Photos by Ben Heine via benjaminheine.blogspot.com Reddit Stumble

GoAnimate for Schools Jason Sho Green's Mind-Blowing Doodle Portraits Jason Sho Green uses a simple ball-point pen to create incredibly intricate portraits that are actually made of other smaller drawings. Whether we’re good at it or not, we all like to doodle, but American artist Jason Sho Green has taken the pastime to a whole new level with his amazing doodle portraits that look like modern-day mosaics. Seen from a distance, his works looked like detailed recreations of his subjects, for which he uses shadows to outline the fine characteristics of the face, but as you approach them you realize there’s a lot more to them. Jason actually uses a ball-point pen to “assemble” his portraits from various doodles, including images of people, animals and fantastic creatures. If you like Jason Sho Green’s doodle portraits as much as I do, you might also want to check out Sagaki Keita’s artworks made from thousands of drawn whimsical creatures. via My Modern Met Reddit Stumble

Franco Clun's Drawings Look Like High-Resolution Photographs Italian artist Franco Clun uses only pencil and paper to create these incredibly realistic portraits that can easily be mistaken for photographs. Believe it or not, he’s a self-taught drawing master who has never studied art… I’ve always found hyperrealism fascinating, and the collection of articles on this amazing art genre that I’ve posted on Oddity Central throughout the years is proof of that. And as if his insane ability to capture every little detail of the human face in his detailed portraits wasn’t enough to make you love him, Franco Clun also wins points for choosing some of the coolest characters from today’s films and TV series, like Dr. Photos © Franco Clun Reddit Stumble

Paul Cadden's Hyperrealistic Drawings Made with Graphite and Chalk Paul Cadden is a Scottish-born hyperrealist artist who creates painfully realistic artworks using only graphite and chalk. I’ve posted some pretty realistic drawings in the past, like Rajacenna’s detailed celebrity portraits, Juan Francisco Casas’ photo-like ballpoint pen drawings, or Paul Lung’s pencil artworks, but the pieces you’re about to see are on a whole other level. Using simple materials like graphite and white chalk, Paul Cadden is able to replicate complex photos down to the tiniest details. Whether it’s the countless wrinkles on an old man’s face, the smoke from a lit cigarette or the water dripping from someone’s face, he makes it look unbelievably realistic. “Although the drawings and paintings I make are based upon a series of photographs, video stills etc, the art created from the photo is used to create a softer and much more complex focus on the subject depicted, presenting it as a living tangible object. via Deviant Art Reddit Stumble

The Photo-Realistic Pastel Drawings of Ruben Belloso Adorna Ruben Belloso Adorna, a young artist from Seville, Spain, has taken the art world by storm with his incredibly detailed portraits of real-life and fictional characters drawn exclusively in pastel on wooden canvas. Painting hyper-realistic works of art with oil paints requires great talent and skill, but drawing them with pastel sticks and crayons seems almost impossible. It appears the word “impossible” is not in Ruben Belloso Adorna’s dictionary, as the young Spanish artist manages to create stunning photo-quality masterpieces using only pastels.
