Drawing With Realism
I'm in love with this series of drawings by artist Marcello Barenghi. The Italian based illustrator has a tremendous talent when it comes to portraying objects realistically in his drawings. When Barenghi was nine years old he was fascinated with Leonard's Mona Lisa and tried to reproduce it. It seems like Barenghi's found his calling in realism! (ABOVE) This deck of cards is all about shading and detail. You can really see the age of the cards in the way that Barenghi drew them. It's amazing how Barenghi was able to make this deck of cards appear 3D. What do you think of Barenghi's work?
(1) This teapot is super realistic towards the center, Barenghi was able to achieve this look by the reflection drawn in the center. I really like the simplicity of the teapot. You can really see the technique.

(2) This Rubik's cubic is out of this world. When I first saw it, I honestly could not tell it apart from a photograph. I love how the green part of the cube has a gloss finish.

(3) The dollar bill is insane. It looks like the real thing, kind of scary. Definitely a good idea to manipulate the shape of the dollar and not draw it flat.
(4) The eye is probably my favorite. It's not only very realistic, but uses a beautiful selection of colors and shading. The color of the eye is so bright and vivid.
