One talented Russian artist certainly knows how to amaze people with her realistic drawings. Alena, also known as _litvinalena_ to her 163k followers on her Instagram account, captures people's faces just by looking at them and only using pencils to create amazing drawings. She focuses on the tiniest details in each portrait so these pencil drawings may look like printed photos but well, they aren't.
Alena specializes in painting people of different ages, shapes, and colors. She masterfully brings out the best features of each person making their portrait drawing unique and forever memorializing the person in it. Most of her beautiful paintings are custom portraits which take her up to 10 days to make but she also paints famous celebrities like Neymar, Keira Knightley, Dwayne Johnson, Marilyn Manson, Matt Damon, and many more!
As the artist introduced herself to Bored Panda, she's a Moscow-based self-taught artist who's been painting portraits for over 8 years. Well, we can certainly see that these 8 years of hard work have paid off as it's hard to separate her unique artworks from real photos!
