Realistic Pencil Portraits

Realistic pencil drawings, which include a couple of celebrities.

Chinese Artist M. Links manages to recreate people's likenesses, whilst picking fantastic expressions to make for a more interesting view.

Not the typical "Look forward and smile" of years back. The two celebrities mentioned above are: Hannibal and Will (Mads Mikkelsen and Hugh Dancy) from the show Hannibal.

As well as the expressed emotions, there is the play with light and shadow. This further helps sell the realism side of Mr Links's work.

Amongst all of these beautiful drawings, the one I gravitate towards the most is the last one on the page. I am not sure what it is exactly... It might have somethings do with the expression. It emotes, but in a neutral way. One which could be interpreted in so many different ways.

Have a look and see if you can match my words to the image.

Ps. I gave the images some titles.
