Mind-Blowing Photorealistic Pencil Drawings of Cats

Mind-Blowing Photorealistic Pencil Drawings of Cats | Life @ Work | Scoop.it
You don't have to be a cat lover to appreciate this. It's been awhile since we checked up on artist Paul Lung. Over two years ago, we came across his incredible pencil drawings and were blown away by the just how much they resembled photographed. If you can believe it, over the past two years, Lung has sharpened his skills even more which is most evident in his cat drawings.

No only do the cats' fur and whiskers look unbelievably real, the sharpness and clarity he achieves in their eyes are uncanny. Taking on average anywhere between 40 to 60 hours to complete just one piece, Lung is all about the details. Surprisingly, he solely relies on his trusty mechanical pencil to bring each cat portrait to life.

The Ultimate Guide to Body Language

The Ultimate Guide to Body Language | Life @ Work | Scoop.it
We spend our lives learning how to decode other people's nonverbal cues.  While we’re busy trying to decode their messages, they are also trying to decode ours.  There are times when you want other people to know exactly how you’re feeling, especially when those feelings are both positive and reciprocated.  This isn’t always easy to do, especially if you’re not a particularly emotive type of person. At other times, however, you definitely want to hide your inner feelings. To avoid emotional leakage, you may have to work doubly hard. Depending on the situation, you may need to put on your Lady Gaga-style poker face.
