These Are Not Photos, But Incredible Pencil Drawings

Japanese artist Shinichi Furuya can wield all sorts of magic with pencil and paper.

Furuya is a middle-aged salaryman, but as pointed out on Ota News, in his free time, he draws portraits of famous Japanese female celebrities like Satomi Ishihara, Rino Sashihara, and Suzu Hirose. It’s not surprising that his work has been featured on Japanese television. He is quite talented.

Below are the completed works and images (and videos) that hopefully shed light onto his process.
