Metal skull by Trichardsen Metal skull by Trichardsen
*** This is not a anatomically correct representation of a skull, it is just a Biker type metal skull.***

This drawing pretty much pushed my limits to the max, 90 hours of intense concentration throughout, well except for the last 30 minutes which was pure blizz.

Done for a friend who ordered it.

Drawn on Canson Dessin paper A4.
4h-9xxb and 0.3 b mechanical.
kneaded eraser
Magnifying glass
pencil eraser

This is a beautifully done piece of work. The first thing you notice right off the bat is that metallic and shiny effect. The artist does a great job of using contrast between black and white to create this amazing effect of shine. However, when trying to create high contrast pieces, it is very easy to just forget the detail work. This artist amazingly combines both hyperrealism with this extreme contrast to create a breathtaking piece. Clearly a lot of time went into this work, with superb technical precision and detail. If you want to learn how to create a shiny effect with graphite, take a look at how this piece uses contrast to create that effect.
What do you think?
