This Time Lapse Portrait by Elfan Diary Shows His Progress

For a lot of us, a time lapse portrait video is a great way of getting to understand an artist's process.

So much of the time, people who aren't involved in art simply look at the finished product and think about its final meaning and appearance, neglecting the process(es) that went into making the piece. There is often painstaking time and precision that goes into works of art and, just as often those processes are as interesting to know about as the art itself.

With this in mind, here is a time lapse portrait video from Indonesian artist Elfan Diary. In this video he works with Fine Color markers, a Sakura Pigma Micron pen and standard Faber-Castell colored pencils to create a beautiful portrait.
