You Won’t Believe How This Artist Accomplishes These Incredible Drawings
This picture is impressive enough. The drawing is exquisite.
But get this–this is not a typical “rendering.” Instead this is an example of Pointillism, normally associated with colored dots and Impressionist painters such as Georges Seurat and Paul Signac.
Originally the term was meant to be derogatory, but now we appreciate the skill, not to mention patience, that it takes to fool the eye into believing it is seeing line and various shades (or hues in the case of the Impressionist masters.)
This drawing by Xavier Casalta is titled, Autumn. It contains over 7 million individual dots!
This young 23-year-old illustrator is accomplishing something not many of us have either the skill nor the patience for. He estimates “Autumn” took about 370 hours to complete.
