Artists have been using pencils to draw and color for ages, but some decided that pencils also work great when creating some of the most magnificent sculptures.


Show Full Text

By combining colored pencils, putting them together or carving them, these artists transformed them into various magnificent art pieces: a gorilla, a teddy bear, a couple hugging, a miniature bust of Barack Obama - all seem to look as abstract objects coming to life. You have to look very closely to realize, that they are, in fact, made out of pencils.

Take a look at these fantastic pieces of art and submit your own pictures of pencil sculptures. Don’t forget to vote for your favorites as well!
