French artist Sebastian Del Grosso combines portrait photographs with sketch-like illustrations to create these incredible images.

This is what Sebastian had to say: “Actually this is quite easy if you know Photoshop but a nice idea. Not pure art but the sort of thing copy writers do every day across the world for promotional things. I know because I do this sort of thing myself. All he has done is taken a photo, made another layer copy and converted it to a pencil drawing in part and erased the portions of the original photo to marry up at the edge plus a bit of blending and dodge and burn to give the photos an artistic look. Maybe an hour to do each one.”

The drawings are done by hand on a sheet of paper, scanned then cleaned, before adding them to a photo using Photoshop.
