Artist Draws Hyperrealistic Portraits of Animals That Look Like Photographs

Haruki Kudo is a young, gifted artist best-known for his hyperrealistic drawings of animals that look like photographs. To create his artwork, the 18-year-old Japanese man uses only colored pencils but most of his portraits look way too good to have been done by hand. He says that his artistic journey began a few years ago.

“I started drawing about two years ago and I was fascinated by the fun,” the artist who goes by the pseudonym Kudoharu125 on Instagram told Bored Panda.

Despite that he has only 2,600 followers, his Instagram feed is definitely worth checking out. There you will find drawings of all kinds of animals, from cats and dogs to eagles and insects, and they are all done with so much precision.
