At first glance the image above seems like an ordinary photograph, however, this is actually a drawing done with ballpoint pens. The artist responsible for these images is a Portuguese man called Samuel Silva, surprisingly he is not a professional artist but a lawyer and draws these amazing pictures just for a hobby.

Some of his works take about two days to be completed and he uses just eight different colors of pen for each drawing.

According to Silva’s page on the net deviantART, he was always interested in drawing and began making more elaborate works with pens in high school. According to the Portuguese, “Ballpoint pens are as underestimated as they are a powerful medium.

It’s not about what you use, it’s about how you use it.”
