post for the public who is interested in knowing more about the art of drawing and what to look for, when you look at :-)

there is a difference between hyper-realistic drawing (fig 2) and detailed drawing (fig 1). 
As you can notice in the first example, the artist (not me) goes for technical excellence to the point of reproducing perfectly a photograph. I personally am in awe when i see such work but I dont understand the point of it. After all, one could easier take a photo... Hyper-realism is seldom an invention, it often copies pixel by pixel a photograph (never a life model). 
When it comes to hyper-drawing something that doesnt exist and fooling my eye into believing it's actually a photo, that's a different conversation.

by the way, this posting is not to judge or evaluate anyone. I just think a large section of the public is not aware of these things. For whichever reasons.

Back to my drawing (fig 1), detailed drawing intends to keep you always alert that what you are looking at is the result of a hand passing over a sheet of paper, while holding a pencil. This way of drawing gives me an immense pleasure, as it allows me/one to deal with "the shadow problem". (to mention of of the reasons)
About shadows volumes could be written, and they should, as little info is available.
Shadows have a direction. 
On one particular surface, there could be 2 or more shadows of different directions.
Two superimposed shadows add, in opposition to light behavior. 
Light separates objects (the borders between objects are more visible), shadows unify them so it's very difficult to paint/draw in shadows and give depth to that area. If one doesn't, the whole area looks flat.

I love shadows because they always reward the patient man...

Maybe you should get some knowledge about pronouncing the names of the old masters whose examples you use in the videos. It really shows you've never been to an art school or watched a serious program on art, let alone having a basic general education.

+buff hooper And In-grez for Ingres .... Bruzhel for Breughel ... the actual information was quite extensive, interesting, and rather generous all things considered: but if that's the voice they use on their lessons, it would drive me mad within an hour....
