Photorealistic Wax Pencil Drawings by Christina Empedocles

Christina Empedocles uses wax pencils to create these captivating drawings. Not that you’d take them to be drawings at first glance. Christina renders her subjects so flawlessly most people will take one look, declare it a photograph and scream “Faaake!” when told they’re actually drawings. Aside from being incredibly detailed, the play of light and shadow are perfectly reproduced in every wrinkle of the paper.
