    What This Artist Creates With Just A Ballpoint Pen Will Astound You

    http://www.viralnova.com/realistic-p...n%202015-05-08

    What if I told you that the pictures below aren't photographs, but drawings?
    Enam Bosokah, an artist from Ghana, creates amazing portraits that look more like photographs than sketches. All he uses is a pen and some paper. Amazingly, though, the realistic drawings rival the clarity of high-resolution photography. Check out his work below.
    Bosokah studied art in school, and has since pursued his passion for hand-drawing powerful and realistic images.

    Each of these portraits takes between three and eight days to complete, depending on the resolution and other aspects of the reference image.

    He begins with an outline of his subject, adding cross-hatching for shading. Then he uses methods such as pointillism to add certain details.

    Bosokah sees the face of each subject as a "window" through which he's "able to capture the full being of a person."

    The Ghanaian artist said that what inspires him is his "quest for sharing the emotions of his subjects."

    I'll never look at a ballpoint pen the same way again -- wow.

    Death thought about it.
