David Álvarez is a Digital Artist and Animator from San José, Costa Rica. The main theme of his drawings is currently female portraits based on real people, all with a very cute approach and the main focus being on the huge eyes looking straight at the camera.
After 8 years working in the industry as an Animator, he decided to switch his focus to Illustration and Social Media, by posting one real person’s portrait every day and quickly gaining a following of 228K on Instagram in less than a year.
It takes from 4 to 7 hours for this talented 29-year-old artist to finish one of these portraits. He currently keeps posting one of these drawings daily and sharing his techniques as video tutorials on his YouTube Channel.
