When it is a Really Cool Charcoal Drawing!
I have always been into art in some form or another starting with photography at the age of 12 or 13. I also took my art GCSE a year early and passed it but never really felt I was any good.
But when I see true talent I just have to share it.
Recently, one of our members at ATP Members wrote to me and asked if I could help promote one of his friends who was an artist who specialised in drawing people. Now I have seen many drawings of people and through my own pathetic efforts as a youngster, I know how hard it is to get right.
Regardless, I said ok.
I sent a photo of my kids to him in Malaysia and a week or so later, I was told the sketch was done and in the post. When I received the drawing (charcoal style) I was gobsmacked! This is the photo:
This drawing was a pure work of art and so lifelike it took my wife and I some convincing to prove that it wasn’t just a Photoshopped effort. The charcoal coming off on our fingers was the first give-away that this was real. You can see the sketch below but please bear in mind that I have a rubbish scanner and this is not the full image.
I cropped the photo to match the sketch which was too big to fit in full on my A4 scanner. The representation below is good but nothing compared to seeing the sketch in real life…it really is amazing.
I have the photo in digital format and could print off as many as I like which tends to diminish its value. However, a remarkable sketch like this that took a talented person thousands of miles away more than a week to finish is to me, worth a lot more than the digital print. We are going to get this framed and hung on our hallway wall for everyone to see.
So, duly convinced and true to my word, I am promoting this guy as promised. For a sketch like this of two people, he charges around £76 delivered anywhere in the world which is a steal as far as I am concerned. If you would like more details, in the first instance, please get in touch with me and I will pass your details on.
