I've been drawing since I was 2 and am now 58 and I've been a commercial artist. Having said that, these drawings are phenomenal to say the least. As to the question I'd have to say that talent is the most important trait in doing this kind of excellent work. Talent is, however, nurtured by practice and thorough devotion to the finished piece. Once again, unbelievable how truly great these examples are.


I love these, they look giga realistic.. especially number 10, crazy!
