Vincent van Gogh drew thousands of images to better his skills and to fulfill leisure time. He completed over 1,000 drawings, which are known of, from 1877 to 1890. Van Gogh saw drawing as a necessary task to build a foundation as an artist and to study form and movement. However, as he describes, in many of his letters, he also used drawing as an outlet for his depression. The following except about Van Gogh’s drawing comes from a letter Vincent wrote in 1880, at the age of 27, to his brother Theo.
“Well, and yet it was in these depths of misery that I felt my energy revive and I said to myself, I shall get over it somehow, I shall set to work again with my pencil, which I had cast aside in my deep dejection, and I shall draw again, and from that moment I have had the feeling that everything has changed for me, and now I am in my stride and my pencil has become slightly more willing and seems to be getting more so by the day.

31-year old artist with a degree in airbrushing demonstrates great talent with many different art mediums, among them being oil, water paint, acrylic, paint pens, charcoal, graphite and pencils. Trying 3D drawing, according to him, was just another way to push his own boundaries. Despite all the many personal projects, Ramon also runs JJK Airbrush company, offering some “kick-ass airbrush designs”. And for the last time – yes, all of the pictures below are actually 2D!
