When we ran across this artists website we were astounded at the realism that J.D. Hillberry gets from his Charcoal and Pencil Drawings. He offers drawing classes and workshops (which we will be visiting) as well as his work for sale.
From J.D. Hillberry’s website “Each original drawing is rendered on white 100% acid free paper or watercolor board. I use a combination of charcoal and pencil in each piece, which adds texture and depth. Even with all of the techniques I use to speed up the drawing process, some of my original drawings can take up to 250 hours to complete.”
