Drawn Faces Under Construction

Looking at the lines of a tree can tell you a lot about its life, and the same could go for people. David Cristobal is a Spanish artist whose highly detailed wood people are worth checking out. These portraits are drawn realistically, yet the texture of the wood that they are built from makes it become a surreal experience. I almost want to stick my face right up close to their cracks and peak into what's on their inside. Is that creepy?

Stylistic Portraits with a Ballpoint Pen



I discovered the drawings of Milton Lozada while browsing through the artists on the Sktchy app (which by the way has been growing into a really great community). Milton is a tattoo artist working out of South Florida, whose style of drawing really came across to me in the portraits he inks with a simple ballpoint pen. To me, they all seem to be referencing a future we have yet to come across.

He's got a nice collection of work to be seen over on his Instagram feed as well.

The Incredible Analog Drawing Machine





Oh my, I am in love with this project by Tobias Gutmann. It's one of the happiest and most creative things I've ever shared here on DA.

The Face-o-mat is a portable drawing booth that Tobias carried around with him 40,000 kilometers through Europe, Africa and Asia, drawing over 700 faces. The booth itself is incredibly designed and built, from the coin slot and style sliders to the clicking carousel of paper simulating a matrix printer. I want to teleport Tobias and his machine over here and have him draw portraits of everyone I know. So cool, especially his unique style of drawing. Enjoy and be sure to watch the video above.

Famous Floating Heads



Ben likes to draw buildings on fire, space objects from our favorite movies and often times quirky celebrity portraits. Here are some of my favorite by him and I think he's captured their expressions quite magnificently. Can you name all six popular heads in the comments below?

She Doesn't Even Go Here!

Do you remember in Mean Girls, when Crying Girl just wants to bake a cake filled with rainbows and smiles? So many feelings, no place to share them!

Well, these eight lady-pals have a lot of feelings, too. So they decided to collect them all into a rad little zine! Sad Girls features a few of my favourite illustrators, such as Kaye Blegvad and Tuesday Bassen. It's like a cake made of rainbows and smiles, but for your eyes! Haha, maybe not. I don't know. Anyone who's never seen Mean Girls will be wondering what the funk I'm going on about here.

Enough words, bring on the sweet hand-drawn portraits!

Milk Does A Sketchbook Good

Portraits made with oil paint, that is what Soey Milk (an artist from Pasadena, California) is best known for, but I wanted to look beneath all of that and showcase the drawings you'd find in her sketchbook.

I think you'll agree, I found them to be just as dramatic and seductive.

Night of the Drawn Dead

It's the time of year where all our hearts flutter with fear. It marks the return of The Walking Dead and Zombie Walks all over the world, but nothing will prepare your weak heart for Rob Sacchetto's Zombie Portraits. Rob turns your everyday googly mug into delightfully decaying masterpieces, so that even if you sleep with Max Brook's Zombie Survival Guide, you'll still be left shaking with fear beneath your bed.



You can (and should) read the whole process over at Rob's website, but it basically goes a little something like this: First he takes your photograph and draws your likeness with a pencil, which he considers the most crucial part of the whole process. "Likeness is paramount" he says, because "placement, proportion has to be spot on." Rob adds, "It's during this process that I look at light, facial structure and I go about creating a zombie that is still recognizable. I don't use any references, by the way, all this chaos comes from my twisted psyche." He then adds watercolor flesh-tones, which gives it a 'trauma' look and follows it up with ink to highlight all the small details that make his Zombie Portraits so unique. In all, it takes him between 3 to 6 hours to complete a portrait.

See more ghoulish examples below, while you still have a pulse.
