Awe-inspiring Masterpiece Drawings by Gurekbal Bhachu

Prepare to be amazed by masterpiece drawings by Gurekbal Bhachu who is a self-taught artist based in London, UK. His muse? He takes as inspiration celebrities and characters like Eminem, Drake, Morgan Freeman and even Thanos from the Avengers: Infinity War movie. His level of details is what is the most awe-inspiring ones we have ever seen on ABDZ. Take Thanos for example, you can clearly see the levels of details from the color, texture, and highlights. A huge prop to Gurekbal for his incredible work. More Links Personal Site Instagram Via Instagram Dread it. Run from it. Destiny still arrives. Thank you all for being patient with this drawing. I spent much longer on this than any of my previous pieces. I’m still quite unsure if I’m going to include a background as I made some mistakes and they’re quite visible so I kind of want to cover that up. It’s been exhausting but I don’t want that to stop me from going all the way and so over the coming days I’ll make that decision and keep you updated, far more than these past 2-3 weeks of absence lol. Thank you for supporting me and my work, much love as always ❤️ Pencils: Prismacolor Premier (@prismacolor) Paper: Strathmore Toned Tan (@strathmoreart) Highlights: White Uni Posca Paint Pen (@poscagallery) #art #arts_gate #art_supernova #artistic_unity_ #artist #pencil #illustration #drawing #sketch #artistic_nation #spotlightonartists #wip #worldofpencils2017 #instaart #artofdrawingg #drawinganatomyandart #artistic_dome #young_artists_help #art_worldly #art_spotlight #draw #duende_arts_help #artfido #art_realism_ #artistuniversity #gsinghb #sharingart #illustratenow #gurekbal A post shared by Gurekbal Singh Bhachu (@g_singh_b) on Aug 22, 2018 at 9:10am PDT Bruce Lee drawing finished. It only took me 7 weeks to complete lol. In all seriousness, thank you all for your patience with this one. I think I’m slightly uninspired as of recent and that tends to carry through my work the longer I take until it’s complete. I have more exciting pieces planned but I still have the Kendrick drawing to finish.

Though it didn’t have some of the challenges my previous drawings had such as drawing facial hair and wrinkles. This piece presented some of it’s own, most of which being the droplets of sweat on the forehead/skin and creating a much smaller pore texture than I’m used to. It’s become clear to me as it probably has to you that these drawings have been taking me much longer than they did before so I just wanted to thank you all for being patient with me and providing support as well as sound advice, I couldn’t be more appreciative for that. Much love ❤️ Pencils: Faber Castell 9000 Paper: A4 Bristol Board (Winsor & Newton) Eraser: Tombow Mono Zero Blending: Cotton Bud/Q-tip/Dry Paintbrush Highlights: White Uni Posca Paint Pen A post shared by Gurekbal Singh Bhachu (@g_singh_b) on Feb 19, 2018 at 8:17am PST The longest I’ve ever spent on a drawing (roughly 2 months) and I’d say my most detailed piece too but what took the most time weren’t the details themselves but rather the challenge they presented. I can’t tell you how many days it took me to understand the depth of drawing the white hair on his head and not only that but trying to convey it correctly on white paper. Art isn’t just about knowing the limits of your ability and what you can do to improve them, but the limits of the tools & materials you use also. With that being said, I just wanted to say thank you for all the support both here and on twitter over the course of this piece, I truly appreciate that you share the same passion in watching a drawing unfold as I do, much love as always ❤️ Pencils: Faber Castell 9000 Paper: A4 Bristol Board (Winsor & Newton) Eraser: Tombow Mono Zero Blending: Cotton Bud/Q-tip Highlights: White Uni Posca Paint Pen #art #arts_gate #art_supernova #artistic_unity_ #artist #pencil #illustration #drawing #sketch #artistic_nation #spotlightonartists #wip #worldofpencils2017 #instaart #artofdrawingg #drawinganatomyandart #artistic_dome #young_artists_help #art_worldly #art_spotlight #draw #duende_arts_help #artfido #art_realism_ #artistuniversity #gsinghb #sharingart #illustratenow #gurekbal A post shared by Gurekbal Singh Bhachu (@g_singh_b) on Dec 28, 2017 at 7:34am PST Roughly four weeks of work and a lot of procrastination and my drawing of Al Pacino is finished. Even though there are many areas of this piece in which I struggled where I usually don’t, I really do consider this my favourite. I personally think the addition of using a white paint/gel pen for highlights on the pores of the skin is what gives this piece an edge over the others I’ve drawn but I know that this process still requires a lot of fine-tuning. I’m relieved that this drawing didn’t take as long as my last one since I’ve been putting more of an emphasis on details but spending a month on it can be quite straining so I really appreciate all the support and feedback throughout the whole process, it really means a lot to me, so thank you ❤️ For those interested in purchasing a print of this piece, please visit gurekbal.com Pencils: Faber Castell 9000 Paper: A4 Bristol Board (Winsor & Newton) Eraser: Tombow Mono Zero Blending: Cotton Bud/Q-tip Highlights: White Uni Posca Paint Pen #art #arts_gate #art_supernova #artistic_unity_ #artist #pencil #illustration #drawing #sketch #artistic_nation #spotlightonartists #wip #worldofpencils2017 #instaart #artofdrawingg #drawinganatomyandart #artistic_dome #young_artists_help #art_worldly #art_spotlight #draw #duende_arts_help #artfido #art_realism_ #artistuniversity #gsinghb #sharingart #illustratenow #gurekbal A post shared by Gurekbal Singh Bhachu (@g_singh_b) on Oct 20, 2017 at 9:07am PDT Completed drawing of Samuel L Jackson. The longest a drawing has ever taken me; almost 7 weeks. When I mentioned I wanted to prioritise detail in my work again, I didn’t think it’d take this long. The way I uploaded the progress of this piece was also unconventional so thank you all for your patience, I couldn’t be any more appreciative of your support throughout the progress of this piece.

Extremely pleased with how this turned out. I know I said that I wanted to fill the background with either a solid shade or a pattern but I think a plain background works best here. I have to mention how many were wondering why I decided to draw him and I know his public image gets a bad rep from many people but the truth is, strictly as an artist, there is so much to pull from his discography and be inspired by, I found it fascinating to go back to the music I listened to growing up and now that I'm older, understanding the transition in his work. Each project he has worked on is uniquely it's own and tells a very specific story about who he was at that time and I deeply appreciate an artist's ability to be vulnerable within their work. To add to that, I want to extend my appreciation towards you for the love and support on my work, thank you all so much for the kind words and compliments, I'm forever grateful, much love as always ❤️ Pencils: Faber Castell 9000 Paper: A4 Bristol Board (Winsor & Newton) Eraser: Tombow Mono Zero Blending: Cotton Bud/Q-tip Highlights: Sakura Souffle White Gel Pen #art #arts_gate #art_supernova #artistic_unity_ #artist #pencil #illustration #drawing #sketch #artistic_nation #spotlightonartists #wip #worldofpencils2017 #instaart #artofdrawingg #drawinganatomyandart #artistic_dome #young_artists_help #art_worldly #art_spotlight #draw #duende_arts_help #artfido #art_realism_ #artistuniversity #gsinghb #sharingart #illustratenow #gurekbal @art.realism A post shared by Gurekbal Singh Bhachu (@g_singh_b) on Jun 17, 2017 at 6:55am PDT After restarting and so many hours of work and readjusting, I finally managed to complete this drawing of @badgalriri to the best of my ability. I think the most important lesson for me to take away from this is that, of course not every piece is going to be my best work. The effort I put in, shouldn't go unnoticed to myself regardless of the outcome. Even if I tried and failed, it was still the hard work that mattered. And of course, this is far from failure but I did notice I was unable to put forth the level of detail I usually do. With all that said, I did appreciate all the comments, compliments and suggestions throughout the process, thank you for staying with me and watching it all pan out.

It's over, I've poured my energy into it. But somewhere a long the way is when it was at it's peak, the greatest part of it for me is still in it's progress because it moves from looking nothing like it at all to having depth and form. At any point during that time, I could have decided to approach it differently, there was possibility, and with that comes artistic liberty. Similarly, the same can be said for the character arc of Jesse Pinkman (@glassofwhiskey) in Breaking Bad himself. The options we have and the choices we make are always the interesting parts. Thank you all for sharing your kind words and support during the process of this drawing. It's always appreciated.

Feel free to tag @lanadelrey in this drawing if you'd like :) Have to say that this portrait was a change of pacing from my last two for sure only because I couldn't get the face as smooth as it appeared in the reference and also the fact that it takes a lot less of the paper than the others did, making it harder to squeeze the details in. Thank you all for the support, as always. I enjoy reading your input and support, it truly means more than I can put into words.

First drawing of 2017. Was quite skeptical (as I always am) about how this piece was going to turn out at first because it is one of the more zoomed in portraits I've worked on. What's honestly the best thing about posting my work online is that many of you share the same passion as I do for drawing so I'm thankful for the contribution you all have given along the way. It inspires me to want to continuously get better any way I can. However, never before have I been asked so many times what tools I use over the course of a drawing so I've listed them below lol. I was able to acquire all of these tools from Amazon in the UK but I'm not sure if they are as easy to find in other locations as they are here.

It reminded me that art is a journey, not a destination, at least in portraiture, because for the most part, you already know how it's going to turn out from the photo you're referencing. Where the magic lies is coming to realise how tone shapes depth, that negative space is just as important as the space you shade in, that by understanding that each component of the face works together and not separately you can get a deep sense of perception. That's the beauty of it and your interest in the progress of it all allowed me to realise there's more to art than what meets the eye. It's the process of creation. #art #art_hyperrealism #_tebo_ #artistic_unity_ #artist #pencil #illustration #drawing #artistic_share #artistic_nation #spotlightonartists #wip #worldofpencils #worldoftalents #artofdrawingg #art_hyperrealistic #artistic_dome #young_artists_help #art_worldly #art_spotlight #arts_gallery #tacart #artfido #arts_secret #artwork_support #snaptweet #artsanity #illustratenow #pashaparvez A post shared by Gurekbal Singh Bhachu (@g_singh_b) on Oct 29, 2016 at 11:32am PDT

Meet Kareen Waris aka Waspa: 11-year-old kid with a tremendous drawing talent

Meet Kareen Waris aka Waspa: 11-year-old kid with a tremendous drawing talent

I think the title says it all basically! Meet Kareen Waris who is also known as Waspa that is currently living in Lagos, Nigeria. What is particular is that he is super talented artist and at only age of 11-years-old. Kareen started drawing at the age of 6 and his drawings are generally focused on portraits as we would call it: "hyperrealistic". If you pay close attention, his drawings almost feel like a photograph. We had to feature his work on ABDZ, and we think he is the youngest artist we have ever featured. That's very unique and impressive! Meet Kareen Waris I want to use this medium to say a BIG THANK YOU to those who have been supporting me in every areas. Special thanks to @oohiolei @osheoluwa @temmytadabalogun @splufiknigerians @splufiknigerians @tundeednut @officialarole @gtbank @waptvchannel @wazobiatvng @emma4impact @vivacityvegankitchen @farabaleafrica @arinze @ayowole_art @olodumare91 you are all part of my succeess Story.

Move the World Mural Drawings by Deck Two

Move the World Mural Drawings by Deck Two

Very cool project title for a mural drawing by Deck two who is an artist from Paris, France. Entitled: Move the World, we follow him on this absolute beautiful drawing showcasing the important landmarks of the World. It's quite stunning and I can't even imagine the level of patience it would take to work on this kind of project. Props to Thomas for his incredible dedication! One of my last mural project in Memphis, Tennessee. A huge 2,6 x 13 meters long panoramic view in the entrance of JKI offices. That mural embraces all the famous places in the world that the company has been reaching through the years. Long days of work to complete this freehand mural with just a couple of Molotow acrylic markers. I chose a small 2mm nib to get as much details as I could so the visitors could stare at the walls to discover all the hidden details. I hope you guys will like it too.

Super Realistic Pencil Drawings by Arinze Stanley

Super Realistic Pencil Drawings by Arinze Stanley

If you like super realistic drawings you have come to the right place. Take your time to admire the exquisite work of Nigerian artist Arinze Stanley. Arinze has some impressive hyperreal pencil drawings in his portfolio. The images look so perfect you will wonder if they are photos or not. At least I was so amazed with all the details and realism of the images that I had to stay focused on the fact that I was looking at drawings. His images look so soft and realistic, it is amazing. The artist works with graphite and charcoal pencils and creates huge portraits that take hours (around 150 to 200) to be completed. From beautiful hair to droplets of sweat and subtle light reflections, the portraits are pure perfection. It is nice to see the stages of each drawing Arinze publishes. This way you can keep track of the amazing work he creates while reminding yourself that you are looking at a pencil drawing. Check out the images we have here and make sure to visit his Instagram for more info about each piece. Enjoy!

Moody Illustrations by Elicia Edijanto

Moody Illustrations by Elicia Edijanto

Since starting Abduzeedo I've come across an infinite number of inspiring illustrations varying in style. Colorful, 80s, 90s, 3D, you name it and we've probably published it and continue to find inspiration from incredible artists around the globe. To date, I have to say that the work that Elicia Edijanto shared on his Behance profile really deserves to be at the top of my list. It reminds me of the game Limbo because of the mood and aesthetics, however Elicia's work has far more texture and personality. One of the things that make the work shine in my opinion is the mix of techniques, drawing and painting with just some brush splatters. Add to that, an interesting combination of subjects, like the friendship of a boy and a bear or other animals and you have a beautiful and moody set of illustrations.

This post is in honor of the late, great fashion designer Oscar de la Renta who passed on today. The Dominican Republic born de la Renta left an indelible mark on the world of fashion and beyond and his influence will carry over for decades and centuries to come.

His beautifully designed clothing has been worn by a vast array of distinguished women and celebrities alike. In this post, we've curated a selection of some of our favorite sketches in hopes to inspire the next generation of burgeoning fashion designers. It all begins with simple pen to paper. Vaya con Dios, Oscar!

Surreal Compositions by Redmer Hoekstra

Surreal Compositions by Redmer Hoekstra

I am a huge fan of surrealism, especially the unreal compositions mixing objects in ways that challenge our imagination. Redmer Hoekstra shared on his Behance page some incredible drawings exploring some of these ideas. Surrealism is a cultural movement that began in the early 1920s, and is best known for its visual artworks and writings. The aim was to "resolve the previously contradictory conditions of dream and reality." Artists painted unnerving, illogical scenes with photographic precision, created strange creatures from everyday objects and developed painting techniques that allowed the unconscious to express itself and/or an idea/concept. - Wikipedia For more information and to check out Redmer's full portfolio visit http://www.redmerhoekstra.nl/
