Emanuele Dascanio is masterful at hyperrealist art. The video within post shows how time-consuming and detailed his shading technique is. All of the greyscale images in this post are charcoal and graphite drawings on paper, and the colored ones are oil paintings on boards. And an extraordinary one to mention is “Father” (at top), this Jesus looking man is actually Dascanio’s real dad.
