Technology brings to surface more and more talented artists who create astonishing digitally manipulated images on every possible theme, illustrating everything that you could possibly imagine. But then we still have the "classics", for whom the pencil and paper are the genuine and compulsory materials in creating works of art.

This is our third post from the "pencil drawings" series posts and it shows 50 brilliant portraits of men created by the technique of traditional drawing, without any digital manipulation. Some of them can easily trick the eye into believing that they are real photos of real people, that's how beautiful and expressive they are. True masterpieces.

(“I’d disagree about the “Jesus of Nazareth” one being on the list. Since its not ultra realistic at all, he doesn’t look Israeli at all, or Jewish in any sense, he doesn’t even look middle eastern, the ‘real’ Jesus was all of those things. Unless its a drawing of an actor who has played Jesus.”

I’d disagree about that portrait since Jesus doesn’t actually exist.)…

so I say, FUCK YOU FRANK!

These is a nice collection of male portraits. I can’t believe Splash is a drawing and not a photo. It’s fantastic.

Most of these are hardly “ultra-realistic.” Hell, a lot of them aren’t even all that good.

Great job! Very well done. The Jensen Ackles drawing made my day. Supernatural is my favorite show 🙂

A very interesting blog post. Glad I ran into it. Felt it was worthy enough to be tweeted on Twitter and sent this link to several of my friends. Thanks for sharing.

I wish I can be a little 50% of your talent to draw. I’m really impressed of your fine work!

Thanks so much, you people got me creeping in my car and drawing unsuspecting pedestrians. I feel like a stalker. 😀

Dear author,
I came across your blog while stumbling. Although I liked your collection very much (its jawdropping), I would like to point out an error. The potrait under the name “India Name” is not actually of an Indian man but of a Nepalese man. I am from Nepal and the hat the guy’s wearing in the potrait is a part of our national attire. So, I would be really greatful if u changed the name.

Sincerely,
Aayush (from Nepal) =)

Those drawings are beautiful , so smooth and well done.
you’re very inspiring, i’d love to have a drawn portrait like that.

My fav is splash, all others are excellent, but the level of detail in splash is way too good.

I think about half of these hold up to the standard of “ultra-realistic.”

Some are quite gorgeous, though. I love “Splash,” “Father,” and the larger portion of “Depp.”
