Because we can't just get enough of photorealistic drawings, here's another dose of some high-class sketch work. Drawing of Russell Thayer by ~nimra is a stunning portrait, rendered with one of the most basic tools in the artist's toolbox - a pencil.

Oh my God I’ve been caught; I have nothing better to do at 54 years of age than the fake people out.

By the way this work has been shown in many museums and galleries including Baylor University, Eastern Illinois Unevenly and Center Michigan University just in the past year. There are a lot of people here at DA who have seen this work in person, before you accuse someone of being “fake” maybe you should get some facts.

Get a fucking life
