I'm slightly behind the curve on this one, but I've recently fallen in love with Manchester born, Mark Demsteader's work. His figurative drawings are to die for. Soulful yet showcasing his incredible technical ability, his work seems to focus on the subject's wants and regrets. His sitters always look pensive, almost pining for something. Or someone. The subjects are left wanting. You're left knowing that the artist isn't revealing the entire story. 'Natalie' is my favourite muse of his, but he's also done some beautiful pieces of Emma Watson too.
