Although my art is far from being hyper-realism, I hope to, one day, be able to put the time and effort into making work like Emanuele Dascanio. He uses a wide range of lights and darks in his drawings to bring emphasis to certain points. Each part of the drawing, from the tone of the face to the tone of the shirt and hair, is completely different from the rest. This creates a piece of work that not only visually pleasing, but also allows the viewer to get lost in the drawing. My artwork does not have as much variation in tone, which is one thing that I need to work on. Also the level of detail that Emanuele puts into his drawings is astounding. This might be do to the fact that he uses a much larger sheet of paper than I do. Take a look at some of his great hyperrealism drawings here: https://www.virtualgallery.com/galleries/emanuele_dascanio_a1675915
