This Photo Is Actually a Pencil Perfect Drawing

At just 22 years old, Italian artist Diego Fazo has developed the skill to  create photo-realistic  drawings using a simple charcoal pencil. His latest creation, pictured  below, has drawn hundreds of positive comments on his Deviant Art profile.

Don’t tell me you can tell the image below is a drawing and not a  high-definition photograph, because I don’t buy it. In fact people were so  skeptical this incredible piece of art was drawn by hand that young Diego Fazo  had to put up some photos of the work in progress just to lay doubts to rest.  And looking at his-mind-blowing masterpiece, can you really blame people for   questioning it’s hand-drawn?

Like other  talented artists who started their careers on Deviant Art, Diego is a  self-taught pencil master whose technique matured with the passing of the years.  He started out as a tattoo artist, and developed a passion for creating  photo-realistic drawings. Inspired by the works of Japanese artists from the Edo  period, like Katsushika Hokusai, he managed to capture people’s  imaginations with his precise lines and oriental drawing techniques.
