Just yesterday, I spent three hours drawing this same Giuliano with charcoal. :XD: And before that, nine hours... I love those curls and the arch of the neck, and the features, but I'm still a beginner and they're hard to capture for me in a satisfying way. How many hours did you work on this, if you say it's 3 months? Seeing this piece is an inspiration... Congrats on the DD.

Hi Kuume, it was around 2.5 months, must have been around 150-180 hours. I was not the fastest at this.. ;) But it was worth it!
Good luck on yours, keep moving!

Wow. I remember a time when I thought four hours was such a long time spent on a piece of art... my record must be now somehere around 20 hours on a digital piece. But it seems like I still have a long way to go. :D Thank you! :D

Oh my, isn't this a small world? :)
Just a few weeks ago, my drawing instructor had a slide of this exact piece up as an ideal example for approaching a still life with charcoals. Out of all the examples he had shown us, this one was by far my favorite.
So image my surprise when I came across this very piece in the daily deviations mere moments ago! :XD:

I'm truly glad to have found your gallery here. You have such a stunning grasp of realism that I can only hope to achieve some day~

This has to be the most insanely hyperrealistic piece I've seen on DA.. or anywhere else. And i've seen many! This completely fooled me, I thought it was a photo.

Anyway, you got mad skills, this is great. congrats on the DD

at first I thought this WAS a sculpture. The detail and the colour is perfect. Every shadow from each curl of hair captures the depth and dimension of the original flawlessly.

For a moment, I thought this was a photograph. I was about to get annoyed that a photo was in the drawings category.

Amazing work.
