We are living in a time where creating digital art seems to be the first choice for many artists. So its refreshing to discover an old-school artist that has put Illustrator, Photoshop and CTRL-Z aside, and armed themselves with only a graphite pencil and paper to create the amazingly realistic pencil portraits you will see below.
All of the drawings are from Russian artist Olga Larionova, and you should check out her gallery on Deviantart for some more fantatsic portraits.
