Pencil Artist of the Week: Lisandro Pena

Since last week’s pencil artist was the master of creating cartoon cats and chihuahuas, we thought it fitting that this week’s pencil artist be a master at capturing animals in their natural form. His name is Lisandro Pena, and he is a pencil artist from Canada that excels in recreating the natural world in graphite. And with subject matter that ranges from siberian tigers to pine cones, it seems that there’s nothing this artist can’t tackle.

More than anything, it is Lisandro’s ability to recreate textures gives his pieces their photorealistic quality. From the different types of hair on a tigers face, to the grain found in a pine cone, every texture is faithfully reproduced. It’s no surprise, then, to discover that Lisandro spends upwards of 400 hours working on a single drawing.

Lisandro’s website features a gallery where visitors can view all of his past work. It also features a “Live Drawing” section where visitors can watch Lisandro draw Monday through Friday from 1:00PM-3:00PM EDT. If you can’t make to one of his sessions, you can also check out his YouTube account, where he posts time-lapse videos of his creative process.
