I’m impressed by the level of detail in Dave’s drawings – in his portfolio he has several works focusing on military personnel and their equipment, including the inside of a cockpit complete with all of the hundreds of buttons, switches and dials. While it seems that his favourite subject is vehicles and other machines, Dave also explores other textures I his drawings, rendering fabrics beautifully, as well as drawing realistic portraits. His use of highlights on metal subjects captures the shine of such a surface in sunlight, this skill set translates into his portraiture as realistically textured hair, and lighting that emulates that of a professional photographic setting.
