An Artist Drew These With Just A Pencil

Written by

 

Can you believe these were drawn with just a pencil? Paul Stowe is an artist currently based out of Shanghai, China. The artist is well-known on deviantART where he goes by the moniker Paul-Shanghai.

Stowe uses a combination of traditional and mechanical pencils along with erasers, blending stumps/sticks and tissue to create his hyperrealistic drawings. Many of the drawings are based on source images found online. I have listed the sources where available.

To see the complete gallery, check out Paul Stowe on deviantART.
