It's difficult to guess by looking at the mesmerizing drawings by young artist Sarah Esteje that they were made using a Bic Pen, as the high level of detail and realism of each art piece is surreal.

These ultra-elaborated doodles are fascinating as no detail was omitted. Esteje brilliantly captures everything from the texture of these wild creatures' fur to their threatening and sharp teeth; one can see and almost feel every pen line. Moreover, the bold tonality of the pen injects each subject with an incredible energy, which is intensified by the facial expression of the animals.

The portraits by Sarah Esteje are gorgeous and powerful; she artistically renders these beasts without taking away their innate wild side. Stats for Bestial Cobalt Portraits Trending: Older & Chilly
