Lately, we've been coming across a lot of artwork that, at first glance, look like photographs but are actually drawings. Take for instance, Samuel Silva's gorgeous ballpoint pen portrait of a redheaded girl or Diego Fazio's pencil portrait of a beautiful woman dripping with water.

Our friends over at DeviantArt just tipped us off to another incredible piece of hyperrealistic art. Seville-born artist Ruben Belloso recently painted this portrait of Poseidon using just pastels. The attention to detail is shockingly amazing. You almost can't believe that you're looking at pastels on wood until you start looking through his work in progress pics.
