Mechanical pencils, or ‘sha-pen’ for short in Japanese, are something that we’re used to seeing in our pencil case. Normally people use mechanical pencils to write, but there are artists who use a mechanical pencil as an unusual painting tool to create mind-blowing illustrations. On pixiv, these illustrations are gathered under the tag ‘sha-pen no honki’ (シャーペンの本気; the power of mechanical pencils) and the tag ‘sha-shin’ (シャー神; the god of mechanical pencils).
This time we bring you some impressive and outstanding illustrations drawn with mechanical pencils. Be surprised and enjoy every last detail of these illustrations!
