Douglas McDougall has been described as a geographer of the human face and psyche and his latest series entitled 'A New God' features some amazingly hyper-realistic drawings of an eccentric bearded man made from charcoal and paper.
The bearded man in these portrait drawings is named Theo and McDougall refers to him as the "Devil's advocate out to confront new age society's ails." McDougall also compares him to the likes of Frankenstein of Golem, from the Lord of the Rings.
Douglas McDougall grew up in Glasgow where he started drawing at a young age. McDougall now uses the mediums of charcoal and graphite on 200gsm Snowdon Cartridge to create his portrait drawings. The detail in this drawings is impeccable and very impressive.
