Phenomenal Graphite Drawings That Look Like Gorgeous Photographs

The following graphite artworks by Malaysian artist Monica Lee have been created entirely by her own hand. No digital effects, no trickery, no shortcuts just an incredible technique and masterful use of graphite.

On the left is the original photograph, on the right is Monica's drawing:

Each portrait takes her anywhere between 3-4 weeks to complete (and sometimes longer if she uses colour), from the initial sketches to the final hyper-real portrait.

I like to challenge myself with complex portraits especially people with freckles or beard

To show the process and inspire a new generation of artists, she's kindly shared footage of the process, which shows the evolution of her artworks, line by line.

Make sure you follow Monica via Facebook or Instagram to view more examples of her remarkable work.
