20 Hyperrealistic Pencil Drawings

From Photorealistic Celebs to Life-Like Animals

— April 7, 2013 — Art & Design
Hyperrealistic pencil drawings are quite an artistic feat. It is hard to believe someone can produce something so realistic with only a pencil and paper. It just goes to show the incredible talent that humans possess.

A popular subject for these talented artists is celebrities and famous people. Part of the reason for this is because these notable figures' likeness is so readily available for all to see. This easily made comparison ensures the artist can properly prove just how realistic their images are as there.

These hyperrealistic pencil drawings take an incredible amount of meticulous patience to exact. A lot of times artists will use a large canvas in order to effectively include every intricate detail.
