Pencil artist Diego Fazio’s lifelike portraits are so realistic that they’re often confused for black and white photographs. This emerging artist, who is quickly becoming famous on Deviantart, has been teaching himself since 2007. Each piece can take hundreds of hours but it’s paid off through dozens of awards and a Facebook following of over 120,000.
