Amazing Portrait Drawings of Famous People by Dino Devic
A 33-year-old artist who never went to art school surprises the world with his breath-taking, amazingly realistic portrait pencil drawings. Dino Devic, a Croatian amateur artist from Zadar said that he got his talent from his father, and that’s exactly what one needs besides hours and hours of invested time to draw such amazing pencil drawings – supertalent! His pencil portraits thrilled the Croatian public, and thanks to the internet, world-wide audience, too.
"There’s a special, intimate bond between me and those portraits. When I’m looking at the image of a person I’m drawing for more than 20 hours - when I’m done with drawing, I have a feeling like I know her. The portrait of Al Pacino is my favorite until now; I was very attached to ithe drawing and had a difficult time saying goodbye to it." (Dino Devic, Croatian artist)
Ever since he started drawing actively, Dino made numerous drawings of famous people, family members and friends, love couples and other pencil drawings of people by order. His realistic drawings are so breath-taking that they were exhibited on the other end of the world (Croatia – Dino’s homeland – is the neighbouring country of Italy) in Lee’s Gallery, Minneapolis, USA.
If anything is true right now, then it’s the saying "A picture is worth a thousand words."
