This kind of talent just leaves you speechless. While sometime we love to write about cute drawings, this post will possibly make your jaw drop for an inch (or two!). Once you realise that what you’re looking at is not a photography but a drawing you’re going to reach described state of amazement.

Nigerian artist Arinze Stanley uses his talent and amazing skills for making enormous pencil portraits of his subjects. Talent, skills, graphite and charcoal pencils and some large sheets of cartridge paper results in a beautiful artwork that you can see in the gallery. It takes Stanley about 200 working hours to achieve the artwork of this quality. You can see for yourself home much attention he is putting into the smallest details of his drawings, such as sweat drops on person’s face or particular lightening.

Stanly focuses completely on pure realism, managing to imprint into these pencil portraits emotions and drama. Larger than life series of portraits are really impressive, due to their scale and to almost three-dimensional sense that the observer gets while watching them.

In the gallery below you can check out part of the creation process along with the final results of Stanley’s portraits called Larger than life. 

His work is exhibited at Omenka Gallery and you can see more of his works (and pieces in progress) on Facebook.
