Human photocopier : PENCIL DRAWINGS BY AN ARTIST WHO IS ADDICTED TO DETAIL


PENCIL DRAWINGS BY AN ARTIST WHO IS ADDICTED TO DETAIL

bright eyed girl, drawing, photorealist by monica lee

 

Monica Lee has been a digital artist for 12 years, and she has finally decided to pursue her dream job as an illustrator. She effortlessly pencils complex portraits of freckled girls and guys, many of these art pieces taking 3 to 4 weeks to finish. Some of her drawings are based on pictures by other artists; for example, the girl with glasses by Marteline Nystad. Lee mentions to me her admiration forphotography, and that her father works in this field. “I grew up appreciating the value of photographs. That’s why I prefer the photo-realist style compared to other styles. And recently, I came across the work of Dirk Dzimirsky and Paul Cadden. Their realism works with just graphite pencils totally blew me away! And I want to be able to do that.”
