Brussels-based photographer Ben Heine‘s series “Pencil vs. Camera” puts up a fine show. Images/illustrations created by pencils are superimposed on a photograph-backdrop to add certain elements to the image.

The amazing masterpiece you see here, didn’t just take talent to create, but also perseverance and patience. Artist Joe Fenton spent nearly 10 hours everyday, working his 0.5 mechanical pencil for a full 10 months. After all that work, he completed his work Solitude that stands 5 ft high and 8 ft across, and totally awesome. Solitude includes different religious references in its framework, and stands out as a masterpiece in the impressive line of works from the artist.
