After seeing so many unbelievably amazing drawings that look like photos come across our desk, we felt as though it was finally time to put those, along with some new ones, all together in one post. In the past few months we've seen a resurgence of photorealistic art but instead of paintings, like we saw with artists like Alyssa Monks, Gregory Thielker or Diego Gravinese, these are drawings. Created either with just pencil or ballpoint pen, these incredible works of art show that it doesn't matter what tools you use, it's all about your God given talent and/or carefully honed skills.
