We wouldn’t think any less of you if you believed these images to be photos on first glance.


Nestor Canavarro is an illustrator based in Buenos Aires. With colored pencils only, he draws hyperrealistic portraits of famous characters such as Dr House or Walter White. Depending on the size and detail of the image, it takes Canavarro between 25 and 40 hours to complete each drawing. A difficult technique he masters perfectly, paying a particular attention to the skin texture. An impressive work to discover in images.
