Most artists, and most everybody else in the world, would probably put pencil to paper if they were given a pencil and asked to create some art with it. Not Recep Alamli from Turkey, who uses pencils to create some crazy-looking pencil sculptures.

These pencil sculptures are so fine and detailed, they can almost give you a headache just by looking at them and imagining the focus needed to create one of these pieces. Recep, a chemical engineer by day, created these sculptures out of pencils and the graphite in them, which is quite an incredible feat, considering how small pencils actually are. As seen in the photos, he utilizes the entire pencil, coming up with everything from skulls to owls to a miniature female form.

Please check out the photos. Simply amazing.
