How much art can one squeeze out of pencils and the occasional dip of water paint? Quite much, as demonstrated by Ruben ‘WestSide’ Ramos. Sometimes known as ‘xoramos661′ on the internet, he draws amazingly realistic drawings of skulls, people, comic book characters and gems – sometimes at the same time ! The colors are very vibrant, a good feature for anyone drawing comic book-related objects. But the really impressive stuff are all the crystalized skulls and diamonds. They look almost “more real than reality”, so to speak, a certain achievement in use of color, contrast and perspective. Though personally, I just love the pocket watch with the evil eye. Wish it was an item on Etsy.
Ruben is a self-taught artist, drawing anything he can lay his eye upon. As you can see in the pictures, he mostly uses pencils, but doesn’t shy away from enriching his drawing by other means, too.
