Die extrem realistischen Bleistiftportraits von Gurekbal Singh Bhachu


Der in London ansässige Künstler Gurekbal Singh Bhachu bringt es zustande, einzig mit Bleistiften die Gesichter von Prominenten extrem realistisch zu malen. Man muss schon zweimal hinschauen, um zu erkennen, dass seine Portraits keine Fotos sind. Zuletzt hat eine Zeichnung vom Rapper Kendrick Lamar im Netz für Aufsehen gesorgt, auf der Liste der Stars, die Bhachu schon gemalt hat, stehen aber auch Samuel L. Jackson, Bryan Cranston oder Al Pacino.

Obwohl es nicht so aussieht, hat der 23 Jahre alte Bhachu keinerlei künstlerische Ausbildung genossen. Auf Instagram hat er mehr als 52.000 Abonnenten. Denen liefert er stets einen Einblick in seine Tätigkeit: Wenn Bhachu an einem Bild arbeitet, gibt es täglich den jeweiligen Fortschritt zu sehen. Angefangen bei den Augen entsteht so langsam das Gesicht. Dazwischen postet der Künstler immer wieder Tutorials über die richtige Darstellung von Gesichtshaaren oder Schattierungen.

Born 22nd July 1994, Gurekbal Singh Bhachu is a 23-year-old artist from London, United Kingdom. Without any formal art education or degree, Gurekbal’s early work of hyperrealistic drawings focuses on the stature of past and present personalities that influence him, captured through portraiture.“

 

From start to finish: Samuel L Jackson. Hopefully the next piece I embark on won’t take as long although I do feel like I set a new standard for myself. I’m not sure how much more detailed my work can get without the expense of spending more time 😅 Pencils: Faber Castell 9000 Paper: A4 Bristol Board (Winsor & Newton) Eraser: Tombow Mono Zero Blending: Cotton Bud/Q-tip Highlights: White Uni Posca Paint Pen #art #arts_gate #art_supernova #artistic_unity_ #artist #pencil #illustration #drawing #sketch #artistic_nation #spotlightonartists #wip #worldofpencils2017 #instaart #artofdrawingg #drawinganatomyandart #artistic_dome #young_artists_help #art_worldly #art_spotlight #draw #duende_arts_help #artfido #art_realism_ #artistuniversity #gsinghb #sharingart #illustratenow #gurekbal

J Cole. From beginning to end. Just to clarify about what I mean by not going as well as I’d hope it would even though to me this piece is still plausible. Throughout a drawing, when you’re working on the individual features and you’re bringing them together, in the back of your mind, despite how good it looks currently, there’s a certain level of cohesion you’re trying to attain (in regards to the reference) so when you step back and look at it from an artist’s point of view, the gaps in the immersion are clear no matter how small they are, especially when you are playing with such fine details. I can understand if it may seem over the top to you but in pursuit of getting better at any craft, the smaller details begin to make all the difference the higher you attempt to climb, at least in my experience.

Here’s a summary of the Walter White drawing from beginning to end with my some of my favourite work in progress shots. I feel like just posting the final process pictures doesn’t do enough justice to the amount of hard work that goes into these portraits, especially in hyperrealism where I’m steady realising that the number one criticism I receive is that at first glance it’s beginning to look like photography and that the indistinguishable factor that contains nullifies the experience of art, which sadly enough, I completely understand but yet I refuse to accept. I have an immense appreciation of the work that many artists go through to meet their desired end when it comes to a piece whilst maintaining a level of „how did they do that?“ but finding out fascinates me, I don’t understand how it takes away from the experience because for me, it only adds and I find satisfaction in sharing that.

Okay, so I know I’m uploading both my Kanye West and Walter White pieces currently and throwing another upload into the mix is inconvenient but seeing as today would have been his 46th birthday, I can not go without saying how much this man has had an impact on my life. From the music to films and interviews (especially the interviews) sometimes I can’t help but appreciate what he was able to do in such a short amount of time and with everything that was working against him, he still managed to fight passionately for what he believed in. I can’t think of anything more inspirational. With that being said, Happy Birthday to the one and only, Tupac Shakur. Here’s a drawing of him from January of this year :) Pencils: Faber Castell 9000 Paper: A4 Bristol Board (Winsor & Newton) Eraser: Tombow Mono Zero Blending: Cotton Bud/Q-tip Highlights: Sakura Souffle White Gel Pen #art #arts_gate #art_supernova #artistic_unity_ #artist #pencil #illustration #drawing #sketch #pencilsacademy #spotlightonartists #wip #worldofpencils2017 #instaart #artofdrawingg #drawinganatomyandart #artistic_dome #young_artists_help #art_worldly #art_spotlight #draw #duende_arts_help #artfido #art_realism_ #artistuniversity #gsinghb #sharingart #illustratenow #gurekbal @art.realism

After restarting and so many hours of work and readjusting, I finally managed to complete this drawing of @badgalriri to the best of my ability. I think the most important lesson for me to take away from this is that, of course not every piece is going to be my best work. The effort I put in, shouldn’t go unnoticed to myself regardless of the outcome. Even if I tried and failed, it was still the hard work that mattered. And of course, this is far from failure but I did notice I was unable to put forth the level of detail I usually do. With all that said, I did appreciate all the comments, compliments and suggestions throughout the process, thank you for staying with me and watching it all pan out. Much love as always ❤️ Pencils: Faber Castell 9000 Paper: A4 Bristol Board (Winsor & Newton) Eraser: Tombow Mono Zero Blending: Cotton Bud/Q-tip Highlights: Sakura Souffle White Gel Pen #art #arts_gate #art_supernova #artistic_unity_ #artist #pencil #illustration #drawing #sketch #artistic_nation #spotlightonartists #wip #worldofpencils2017 #instaart #artofdrawingg #drawinganatomyandart #artistic_dome #young_artists_help #art_worldly #art_spotlight #draw #duende_arts_help #artfido #art_realism_ #artistuniversity #gsinghb #sharingart #illustratenow #gurekbal @art.realism

Spent all night and morning putting the finishing touches on this @theweeknd drawing so it’s safe to say I’m really glad it’s finished 😅 Work ethic had been slipping towards the end and I didn’t get to upload as many videos as I would have liked to this time around. I’m not sure how many of you feel the same but for me, trying to record the process without making it seem redundant can be quite the task, especially when I feel like I’ve shown the same approach multiple times. Regardless, feel free to let me know what you think and thank you all once again for engaging with my work, hope you’re having a great day 🙂 Pencils: Faber Castell 9000 Paper: A4 Bristol Board (Winsor & Newton) Eraser: Tombow Mono Zero Blending: Cotton Bud/Q-tip Highlights: Sakura Souffle White Gel Pen #art #arts_gate #art_supernova #artistic_unity_ #artist #pencil #illustration #drawing #sketch #artistic_nation #spotlightonartists #wip #worldofpencils2017 #instaart #artofdrawingg #drawinganatomyandart #artistic_dome #young_artists_help #art_worldly #art_spotlight #draw #duende_arts_help #artfido #art_realism_ #artistuniversity #gsinghb #sharingart #illustratenow #gurekbal @art.realism
