Filipino artist sketches five portraits of One Direction stars at the same time
Incredible footage shows how a talented young artist can sketch five portraits at the same time.
Junel Salido, 20, uses five pens tied to a wooden stick to draw celebrities and local personalities on pieces of paper.
But instead of focusing on just one portrait per sitting, he can make five all at once by seemingly co-ordinating the movements.
Video shows how Junel sketches each member of the One Direction boy band simultaneous.
Junel said he learned to do so by mimicking online tutorials where artists drew pairs of illustrations at the same time. Once he mastered the technique, he honed his skills even further by increasing the number of sketches.
The artist, from Agusan del Sur province, the Philippines, said: ‘I shade the drawings together so I can finish them all simultaneously. It’s confusing sometimes, but I’ve gotten used to it.’
More people took notice of Junel’s art after he posted timelapses of himself sketching on social media. The portraits sell for P300 (about £4.50) to P1,200 (£17.5) each, which Junel uses to fund his schooling.
He added that his next goal is to sketch seven portraits at the same time.
