If you like super realistic drawings you have come to the right place. Take your time to admire the exquisite work of Nigerian artist Arinze Stanley. Arinze has some impressive hyperreal pencil drawings in his portfolio. The images look so perfect you will wonder if they are photos or not. At least I was so amazed with all the details and realism of the images that I had to stay focused on the fact that I was looking at drawings. His images look so soft and realistic, it is amazing. The artist works with graphite and charcoal pencils and creates huge portraits that take hours (around 150 to 200) to be completed. From beautiful hair to droplets of sweat and subtle light reflections, the portraits are pure perfection.
It is nice to see the stages of each drawing Arinze publishes. This way you can keep track of the amazing work he creates while reminding yourself that you are looking at a pencil drawing. Check out the images we have here and make sure to visit his Instagram for more info about each piece. Enjoy!
Arinze is a passionate Nigerian artist who is keen to capture and represent the essence of individual life forms and expressions through his drawings.
