Artist Profile: J.D. Hillberry
Master of Ultra Realistic Texture Drawings
J.D. Hillberry is a multi-talented artist, art instructor, and book author who has been working for over 20 years producing high contrast art pieces. His stunning pencil and graphite portraits have been seen by millions. He teaches workshops and has a book available that demonstrates his techniques.
Drawing Realistic Textures in Pencil (65,000 copies sold!) is one of my favorite books, so when I saw J.D.'s videos, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to feature his art here on Squidoo. Of note - the rips, tears, nails, screws, and masking tape you'll see in his artwork are NOT real, they are DRAWINGS! So enjoy!
J.D. Hillberry is an ENTIRELY SELF TAUGHT artist!
