The world mourned when comedy legend Robin Williams died recently. Here was a man who made many of us laugh on multiple occasions, and yet he ended his own life after suffering from depression.
Nothing can remove this cruel irony, but seeing someone pay tribute to Robin Williams by spending hours drawing a photo-realistic picture of him may just lessen the sadness.
This is a bewildering talent. The end result could easily be mistaken for a photo, which is why it’s so interesting to watch the whole process from beginning to end.
I’m not sure this is a skill that can be taught. You either have an eye for detail or you don’t. And I’ll be honest I lack the patience required for this kind of thing.
