Incredibly Detailed Animal Illustrations

Iain Macarthur is an artist from Swindon, United Kingdom who, at the young age of eight, became an art fanatic through cartoon shows and comic books. The Batman series started his obsession with drawing fantasy characters and when he grew older, his style matured to include more detailed illustrations of realistic figures and faces. Cartoons still inspire him, as well as lighting, people’s facial expressions, eyes and different forms of patterns and shapes.

At a solo exhibition in Los Angeles at the PhoneBooth gallery, Macarthur showcased his animal pieces. He used techniques like geometrical patterns and nature elements to construct their faces.
