Sunday inspiration

Happy Sunday!

Today's inspiration comes from Marcel Kiss, a 22-year-old self-taught Slovakian artist who creates amazingly realistic pencil drawings of Hollywood stars. Kiss, who has been drawing for only three years, spends between twenty and forty hours on each sketch, working to make every detail as lifelike as possible. I wish I could draw half as well!

The video I've posted below shows how Kiss created a portrait of Rick Grimes, a character from The Walking Dead. If you'd liked to learn more about Kiss, check out this short YouTube video, which features several of his sketches of Hollywood stars. Enjoy!



Wishing you all a creative and inspirational Sunday. ☺
