Dylan Eakin is a self-trained photorealistic artist whose work is so staggeringly accurate it’s almost impossible to tell they are drawings.
Photorealistic Drawings by Dylan
Dylan Eakin graduated from the University of the Ozarks in Clarksville, Arkansas in 2013 with a degree focused on sculptural art. He began training himself in photorealism in 2016 because it was cheaper than pursuing a career in figurative ceramics. He lives and works in New York. Very little is written about the artist for us to share with you, so we will let his work speak for itself. For more of Dylan’s work, and to watch the process unfold in video, check out Instagram, TikTok and his Website.

3 WAYS TO BE GOOD AT ART (WITH PICTURES)
Art is part craft, part creativity, and part business. To become a better artist, you need to both connect yourself to experts who can teach you advanced techniques, develop an original style, and figure out how to make the money necessary to support your art, if you want to become a professional artist. If you just want to be good at art in school, particularly primary school, there's less need to think business and advanced techniques. Once you get started, hopefully your art will become progressively better as your talents earn you the resources that will allow you to improve yourself further.
