I came across these amazing drawings today on a blog, Oddity Central.  And yes, I said drawings.  Artist Paul Cadden uses graphite and white chalk to make some of the most realistic looking drawings I've ever seen.  I'm just completely blown away by these!  This is the kind of art that makes me feel like less of an artist, and not in a bad way, just in a humbling way.  I could never produce anything close to this, and I find it absolutely amazing!

Please check out Oddity Central and Paul Cadden for more images and information.

 The detail on the water and his wet hair is absolutely insane.

 This guy's facial hair and wrinkles just are amazing. 

The attention to detail on the overall pictures is just incredible.  Look at his jacket and the in focus and out of focus parts.  Genius!
