Check out these highly detailed and realistic pencil drawings. Each one is sketched by hand and some are so mind-blowing that you may do a double-take before realizing that they are, in fact, illustrations and not photographs.

Designs can then later be scanned and traced if you need the concept digitized for printing, whether you use your own printer setup or an online printing company. Dabbling in a variety of artistic mediums keeps your abilities sharp and your creativity flowing.
