Hyper-Realistic Pencil Drawings Look Like Photographs

South African illustrator Jono Dry creates incredibly realistic drawings that could easily be mistaken for photographs. The elaborate details he’s able to achieve from a mere pencil, including skin texture, water ripples and eyelash curls, is remarkable. His drawings would be considered hyper-realistic if they were photos, but as drawings, they are simply breathtaking.
