I'm Shaik Salman Afreed, an 18 years old guy from Hyderabad and I am pursuing my BBA from Indian business School. The art of drawing with pencil has been part of my life for over 5 years. Drawing in the style of realism is what I love to do, to recreate LIFE as we see and know it with just a simple pencil is exciting to say the least. Working on a drawing for many hours is so relaxing that to this day I still have a hard time putting my pencil down to take a brake. At an early age I started drawing from life...as the years passed and my drawings became more detailed I drew from photos. Details are key to realism so patience is significant, working a small area to near finish before moving on is a personal technique of mine.
