17 Pictures That…. Wait A Minute, These Are Drawings?


Talk about incredible pictures right? Or… are they. Take a closer look, specifically at the first picture. Well believe it or not, that picture and all of the other ones here are drawn. Mind blown yet!?

This first picture, known as the “Red Head Girl” was created by Portuguese artist Samuel Silva. The picture took him 30 hours to create, and he used seven different ball point pens.

You can check out the rest of Silva’s work below along with other artists Miguel Endara, Paul Cadden and Dirk Dzimirsky. They also use a combination of graphite and charcoal when painting these realistic pictures.
