Coffee Break: Hyperrealistic art

Would you believe that this is actually an image created with just a pencil?

Italian artist DiegoKoi (Diego Fazio) is a self-taught illustrator who started out as a tattoo artist.

Another set of amazing hyperrealistic work, such as the one above -- are actually paintings by some really talented artists such as Italian painter Roberto Bernardi.

Similar to DiegoKoi's art are portraits made with ballpoint pens. Illustrated above is Samuel Silva (VianaArts)'s "Baby cradled in Dad's hands" on deviantArt.
