Artist Uses Simple Pencil To Create These Hyper-Realistic Pet Portraits (49 Pics)

As much as it’s hard to believe, these incredibly detailed realistic pet portraits are not photographs but in fact hand-drawn pencil drawings. This art style is called hyperrealism and as you’ve probably seen it at first glance, it resembles a cute photograph of a pet but after you take a closer look and focus on details, you realize that it’s actually a very realistic drawing in black and white. Hyperrealism requires an incredible amount of work, skill, and patience but we can totally say the result is definitely worth all of this!

Helen Violet is a Canadian artist, based in Toronto, and as of recently, she has been working with hyper-realistic sculptures and making drawings with mostly just a single pencil. From a young age, Helen has been studying Fine Arts and mastering her skill in realism through various mediums.

Bored Panda reached out to the artist to inquire more about her work.

“I have been passionate about both art and animals since a young age. I knew I wanted to be an artist by Grade 1!

I was always fascinated with detail in both nature and in art. This led me to practice realism throughout my life. Getting lost in detail is therapeutic to me, and I find it so rewarding once a piece is finally complete after many hours of hard labor and love.

I didn’t know I would be working as a pet portrait artist, however. I made my first sculpture for my husband (then boyfriend) of his chocolate Labrador, Lucy, back in 2015. I was always fascinated by sculpture, but I thought it was beyond me. I decided to give it a go anyway, and I fell in love with the material.”#2

looks kinda guilty…1Reply

“Though I loved sculpting, I still longed to draw in graphite (my first love!). I have a strong passion for art, and it is my life’s ambition to continue to master my skill. I have no clue what I would be doing otherwise. Art allows me to live in the moment.

As I work on each piece, whether drawing or sculpture, I allow myself to get lost in the details, while always keeping in mind the personality I am trying to capture. This way, I can achieve realism without losing emotion in my work.”#4
