Hyper-realistic Pencil Drawing of Walter White (Breaking Bad)

I hope that most of you guys know what is Breaking Bad. For those who don’t know, Breaking Bad is one of the most popular American TV series. The main character is Walter White (the one who is depicted in the painting below). He is a struggling high school chemistry teacher who is diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer at the beginning of the series. Walter turns to a life of crime, producing and selling methamphetamine, in order to secure his family’s financial future before he dies.

However, what I want to talk about today is Nestor Canavaro, an Argentina-based illustrator and the author of incredibly detailed painting of Walter Wait provided below. The painting is made on a 30x40cm diameter paper using color pencils. The level of detail of this painting amazed me. It’s really hard to distinguish it from actual photos of Walter White.

By the way, I recommend you to visit Canavaro’s Facebook page where you’ll find more great illustrations of celebrities.
