Amazingly complex pencil drawings by Scottish professional artist John Fisher, which focus on ultra-realistic portraits of people and animals, as well as landscapes and buildings.

At first glance, the most striking thing about this beautiful photo & # 39; s is the incredible detail.

You see almost every hair on the beard of Clint Eastwood, every ripple of the water the labrador is in, every tuft of fur on its back. The images look like high quality photos.

But amazingly, the pencil drawings by Scottish professional artist John Fisher are in fact complicated, focusing on ultra-realistic portraits of people and animals, but also on landscapes and buildings.

In fact, they are so lifelike that John was visited earlier this month by two officers from his local marketing standards department on one of his drawings. An anonymous complainant said it was not a pencil drawing, as John claimed, but must have been made with an app – and would therefore qualify as selling art under false pretenses. & # 39; To say I was surprised would be an understatement & # 39 ;, he says. & # 39; But I invited the ladies to show how I worked. & # 39;

John, 36, has been drawing since he was a little boy: & # 39; mainly wee dinosaurs, then doodling in my school jotters & # 39;

When he left school, he studied graphic design, but did not pursue it as a career because, ironically, it & # 39; too much computer work and not enough personal input & # 39; .

A career as a chef followed. His previous job – working weekends at his father's bistro in northern Scotland – meant four and a half hours of commuting every way from his home in Ayr. But it left him the rest of the week to draw.

Since John started working full time as an artist a few years ago, his success has grown. There is a regular flow of commissions thanks to its Facebook page. His works are drawn with a variety of sharp pencils on fine-grained warm-pressure watercolor paper. A portrait in A4 format can take John 15 hours and sells for hundreds of pounds.

His & # 39; trick & # 39 ;, he explains, is to focus on the smallest visible details, usually captured with original photos & # 39; s. & # 39; Many artists do not look for the small defects or stains, but prefer to focus on the tones and folds. I look at individual hairs to add layer upon layer of realism & # 39;

What about that visit of the marketing standards? & # 39; One of the ladies was holding up a self-portrait I had done and I said, "Look at your fingers now." They were smeared with pencil.

& # 39; They were convinced and said that no further action would be taken against me. & # 39;
