Poses and Expressions in Pencil Portraits

Pencil portraits full of expressions.

Indonesian Artist Nas "Tukang Gambar" Is our go to guy when we want see likenesses which emote.

Nas alternates between classic looks, extreme ones, funny and thought provoking ones. Examples of what I have just said, can be seen on the artist page or on our preious posts, in the link below.

The ones I gravitate towards the most are: The calm and composure of the person composing the handwritten note, contrasted with the collapse and despair of the person with their head in their hands.  Extemes of emotions at play.  Especially when viewed together.

There is a happy ending to this post though, as the last image includes a big smile.

Ps. I gave the images some titles.
