Stunning black and white images set the internet alight

These black and white images of models and everyday household objects appear to be the work of a photographer – but there is more to them than meets the eye. 

Amazingly, they are actually pencil drawings painstakingly created by a Japanese artist in a process taking hundreds of hours each.

Kohei Ohmori, 23, has depicted objects including a model vintage car and a screw bolt and shared them online, where he has amassed a huge audience. 

He has also drawn an incredibly realistic depiction of American actress Scarlett Johansson, which also went down well on social media. 

The artist’s brother shared some of his creations on Twitter, where he commented: ‘My little brother is amazing at drawing these precise pictures with pencil. 

‘He was drawing this bolt and nut nonstop, and I could feel a little insanity from him. This one took him 240 hours (still not done). It’s not a photo.’
