Artist Draws Two Portraits Simultaneously

(Video Link)

Xiaonan Sun is a self-taught artist who specializes in charcoal and pencil portraits. He's so good that he can draw two people at the same time, one with each hand.

I hope that this video doesn't give Alex a terrible idea about how to double productivity at Neatorama.

While this is undeniably cool, there's no denying that, I'd like to see a non-time-lapse segment to see what he is actually doing simultaneously. As in, are both hands truly working all the time, or is he alternating his focus from one side to another, or perhaps focusing on detail with one hand while filling up some shadow with the other. On the other hand (no pun intended), as a pianist, I sort of understand how this can be done. Not that I'd ever be able to do it.
