You get really suspicious when you see the pictures made by Diego Fazio and are told that they are not actually captured by camera. Known to the Deviantart users as DiegoKoi, this self-taught Italian creates his unbelievable paintings by using a pencil only. A 22-year-old Diego first started as a tattoo artist, but along the way realized that he actually preferred drawing the bodies themselves rather than on them.

Diego must’ve also had a hunch that there will surely be lots of skeptics out there, and made a smart decision to also photograph his work still in progress. In the photographs you see him working on the portraits, that usually take around 200 hours to complete. “Sensazioni” is just one his portraits, be sure to check the rest on his Deviantart profile!
