I know there's been a similar thread and lots of you will just knock it, but I thought these pencil drawings, done by a young man, are just amazing.

I read the comment underneath and one said "This is not art, the man's a human photocopier" That made me think about it, altho he has exceptional ability all he is doing is copying and did he do that from a scanned copy. If so the statement is not far off the truth and isnt that remakable. The images are great but I would have liked them just as much in the origenal picture

Stunning stuff.

I don't read the comments. I just liked the drawings. I wish I were half, or a quarter, as talented.

Hmmm! Superior to the stuff I used to produce with a 50mm Elmar and Ilford HP3!

I joined an art club, where i met a former police court artist who did this sort of stuff, brilliant and gifted man.

Beloved has just shown me this in the Mail - they are amazing and he has a real talent - I can't even draw a straight line with a ruler!!! He's certainly got my vote!!

...I wish that I could take photographs as good as these drawings.

On a similar note, many years ago I visited a "bird garden" near Pathos.
I call it a bird garden, they were all in cages,
I recall a room devoted to coloured drawings of the exotic birds.
.....more stunning than you could imagine.

So much talent I could weep for the lack of it.

I cant stop looking at them, to me there is something quite unique in his drawings.
