What fun! That must be a quadruple zero brush he is using. I got a kick out of seeing how he smudged some graphite to make the shadow on the lower left corner card.

I have been watching marks videos for a long time as he really has a great understanding of how to convey instruction. Thank you for posting this as I haven't seen this one yet.

The pedantic side of me is saying that shadow in the upper right should have been a darker value.

Still! It was very fun to watch, and he's very skilled.

Why not just paint a realistic pile of dog poop?

Michigan-based author and illustrator Mark Crilley has been working on a series of “realism challenges” on his YouTube channel. In his third installment he tackled the realistic drawing of a torn playing card. Pretty incredible. (via boing boing, thnx brian!)
