Hyperrealism art is always a feast for our eyes. It's a type of realistic art that makes us look twice as paintings seem to jump off the page leaving us wondering how the artist managed to deceive our eyes. At first glance, it may seem effortless but after you take a second look, it's quite an amazing art!

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!

This is absolutely amazing except for the fact that his pupils are floating somewhere north of his irises.

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!
