A natural ability and strong desire to draw surfaced early in J. D. Hillberry’s life, one of the amazing pencil drawing artists. While growing up in Wyoming, he began developing his own techniques of blending charcoal and graphite to give a photo realistic look to his drawings. J. D. uses this monochromatic medium to focus the viewer’s attention to the drama of light, shadow, and texture without the added influence of color. Throughout his career, He has tried to push the limits of realistic expression with drawing. After moving to Colorado in 1989, Hillberry began experimenting with Trompe l’oeil drawings. Traditionally, this type of artwork is done with oils, but he has successfully rendered images so realistically. They fooled the eyes into thinking that real objects are displayed in a shadow box frame. Working out of his studio in Westminster, Colorado, J. D. Hillberry continues to expand the public’s perception of drawing.
Brian is one of the amazing pencil drawing artists that deeply interact with the pencil to create talented art pieces as we see below. He talked in his site about his talent and said:
“My name is Brian Duey. I was born and raised in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I attended a public school in a small village called Grandville where I was first introduced to Art. I was never serious about it growing up but discovered a love for it in my early 20?s. I was inside the house one day and decided to get out a pencil and draw. I immediately fell in love with it and wanted to do it all the time. With every drawing I do, I get a little better. I developed my own techniques and tricks along the way. I strive to produce realistic looking drawings and add my own conceptual ideas too. I often get asked if I ever took any art classes. The answer is… no, I am completely a self-learner.
My work has been published in books and greeting cards, on CD covers, and in various magazines. I have been doing commissions since 2005 and I’ve done work for clients all over the world. Most of my commissions come from the United States, the UK, and Canada but I have shipped works as far away as Ireland. My work has been featured in galleries in the United States. In 2007, I was asked for a portrait of Britney Spears to be featured in an art gallery in Hollywood, California. This event was covered by MTV and gained me a lot more exposure. I don’t plan to slow down anytime soon with my artwork. There are plenty of opportunities that a waits. One of my goals for the future is to get an instructional drawing book published”.

Cesar represent a unique technique of pencil drawing. Cesar’s drawings do not only show the talent behind his art work, but also, it interacts with the environment around it as we will see in his artwork below.
Henrik artwork gallery on Deviant arts is a really interesting experience to learn and enjoy his experienced use for the black and white art to show the details and the shadows. Henrik works implement different color techniques and skills.
Her work is remarked with the soft lines and the excellence analyzing for the light and shadows and how the object got affected with it. Personally, I like her horses and portrait pencil drawings.
