Jose Vergara (a.k.a. Redosking), a 19-year-old artist from Texas, is drawing close-ups of the human eye with the sort of hyper-realistic level of detail that one would ordinarily expect from experienced masters.

Samuel Silva, a 29-year-old Portugal-based attorney, describes his artwork merely as a hobby, and Bic ballpoint pens – as only one of the mediums in his creative work. It takes time to believe that his drawings are not actually photographs, and then to absorb the information that they were created using only 8 different-colored pens.
