Italian Artist Emanuele Dascanio

The amazing detail in this work in progress caught my attention immediately. Working in charcoal and graphite pencil, Emanuele Dascanio creates an image so stunning and real it makes one believe that you could reach out and touch the subject as though it were a living person. 





















The finished portrait below is the amazing result of 300 working hours drawing in charcoal and graphite.

Loving both to paint and draw, Emanuele cares only about the content of his image. The subject of his work is simply the means by which he expresses what he wants.
