The fact that Linda is self-taught makes her capturing of such realistic imagery with only a pencil all the more remarkable, and the more accurate the detail she achieves, the happier she is with her work

Life-like Pencil Sketches of Linda Huber


This incredible American artist has been drawing with pencil for over four decades, and her focus always is on making her work as realistic as possible. She attempts, with great success, to capture moments in time with the maximum of realism in her portayals.

She loves what she does so much, when sketching with that camera of hers, that she finds the process of creation very relaxing, no matter how much time she spends doing it. She started early in life drawing from life, and of course became ever more proficient with the passage of time.

The problem turned out to be that, as her sketches became more intricate and detailed, the time needed to complete them grew, so gradually she turned to working as she does today, taking her subject matter mainly from reference photographs.
Every single work can require anything from 20 to 40 hours to complete, and the fact that Linda is self-taught makes her capturing of such realistic imagery with only a pencil all the more remarkable. She finds detail the key to her success, so the more accurate the detail she achieves, the happier she is with her work

Patience is Linda's most significant virtue, getting each small area perfect, before moving on to the next, her own personal preference. She always finds portraiture a rewarding challenge because of the variety of unique personality features.
Linda though, is equally at home making sketches of inanimate objects. actually being very fond of drawing various material textures, finding metal and glass both extremely interesting to work with and having great fun drawing them.

She has been deservedly, getting commissions for her stunningly realistic art, for over ten years now, from people both across the USA and globally, enquirers having requested that she draw everything from cars and pets to loved ones, her art-work featuring in books, advertisements, many websites, and various art galleries.
Linda is well aware of facial anatomy, knowing that the quest for realism demands individual details be spot on.

Getting the balance of light and shadow right also helps define the shapes of subjects, and when it comes to faces, the exact light in each eye, the texture of every hair, and even skin pores are important to the final image. Linda claims that, when drawing extreme details she works only on a tiny section at a time, forcing her to focus.

When it comes to artistic ability and talent, Linda Huber is a truly gifted woman, her staggeringly realistic art-works giving incredible pleasure to every viewer, because she always manages to capture the very essence of the subject matter, lending an extra dimension to the gloriously detailed images Linda creates, what she achieves with pencil simply not something a mere photograph could possibly convey. Such is the stunning artistry given life by this extraordinarily capable and visionary artist, an immense talent whose works will hopefully be appearing for many more years yet.
