These photorealistic Oriol Angrill Jorda illustrations look as though people have planted their faces on a photocopier and hit the "print" button. However, viewers should know that these astounding images were actually drawn using nothing more than a graphite pencil. It’s eerie how much information Jorda packs into each picture as strands of hair, chin stubble and fingerprints are readily visible.

Being able to imagine how a person would look being squished on a level surface is already a difficult task, but for Oriol Angrill Jorda to then draw such images with amazing precision speaks of this Spanish artist’s incredible talent.

For those with a keen eye, Jorda also includes a stylish dark outline around certain areas of his subjects in order to create contrast between where the skin ends and the background begins. Though not realistic, it's visually appealing. Stats for Flat-Faced Graphite Drawings Trending: Older & Warm
