Sure, I have some talents. I'm a pretty decent cook, I can play the guitar, and I'm eerily skilled at Jenga. But compared to the Argentinian illustrator Néstor Canavarro, I'm a talentless hack. A hack, I tell you!
Don't be fooled by these beautiful images. They're not photographs. No, these are color pencil drawings. I. Know. Néstor drew the following art with his bare hands. And what did I do with my hands today? Comparatively, nothing. Check out some of his incredible drawings of our favorite celebrities and characters below:
How is this level of talent even possible? Look at those details in the hair and skin. Has Bryan Cranston seen this? Someone, quick! Get me Bryan Cranston on the line! I have something he needs to see.
Watch out, Indie! Are those snakes? Wait...no. They're just colored pencils.
Robert De Niro
I can just imagine De Niro saying, "You talkin' to me? You talkin' to me? You talkin' to me? Then who the hell else are you talking... you talking to me? Well I'm the only one here." I would promptly respond with "No, I'm not talking to you because you are merely a drawing," because I won't be fooled that easily.
If they eyes really are the windows to the soul, then Néstor Canavarro just furnished Al Pacino's house with some beautiful, double-paned bay windows. I'm jealous.
It looks like Evangeline just put on a fresh coat of chapstick around those gorgeous chompers of hers.
Oh I'm sorry, did you say something? I was lost in Albert Einstein's gorgeous, flowing mustache.
Dr. Gregory House
Even House would be impressed with Néstor's work. Or he would at least be grateful for the accurate representation of his beautiful blue eyes.
The closeup photos really make you appreciate the amount of time and effort that must have gone into drawing these illustrations. I swear, if you look at these from afar they look like actual photographs. Néstor has got some seriously undeniable skill.
