NOT A Photo, This Was Created With A Pencil

These are the artistic creations of a 22 year old Italian artist named Diego Fazio. He’s found a way to create photo-realistic drawings using a simple charcoal pencil.

It’s so unbelievably realistic that he had to put up some photos of the work in progress just to quiet the doubters on the authenticity of his work. I can’t blame them, heck I wanted proof myself, ha.

Diego is a self-taught pencil master. 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 peopleโ€™s imaginations with his precise lines and oriental drawing techniques.

Scroll down for a few of his drawings and/or check out his Deviant Art profile, as well.
