Artist Samuel Silva's Incredible Photorealistic Ballpoint Pen Drawings (PHOTOS)


The Huffington Post  |  By Hallie Sekoff Posted: 08/23/2012 8:25 am Updated: 08/23/2012 9:19 am




Look closely... it may be hard to hard to believe but the images below are actually drawings made by Portugal-based attorney, Samuel Silva. Silva, who describes his art as a “hobby," uses standard ballpoint pens for many of his drawings, sometimes working on a piece for over 45 hours. Scroll down for more images.

For his “Redhead Girl,” based on the photograph by Russian photographer Kristina Taraina, he used seven different colored ballpoint pens which took some 30 hours to finish. To create such vibrant colors, Silva “cross hatches” in layers to give off the illusion of additional hues and depth.

L: Silva's drawing; R: Taraina's photo

For Silva, ballpoint pens are just one of the many mediums he is attempting to master. However, he writes on his DeviantArt page: ““It’s not about what you use, it’s about how you use it.”

His work bears a resemblance to Paul Cadden's astonishing drawings; both artists display incredible attention to detail which challenges even those images captured by the click of a camera.

Even the ones that aren't photorealistic are still GOOD drawings.
