Pop culture is all around us and something that is hard not to love. This is especially the case with the iconic pop culture characters that people get drawn to for various reasons. Some of us like how relatable they can be, while others just think they look cool.
Pop culture and its characters have also been a great source of inspiration for Samet Turkan. This Istanbul-based art student creates pencil drawings of all your favorite iconic pop culture characters, and saying they’re impressive would be an understatement.
What makes Turkan’s works so great is the fact that he pays a lot of attention to the details. This makes the final result so close to the source that you’d think it’s a sketch of an original.
Turkan shares his drawings on his Instagram profile where he already amassed close to 50k followers. Each of his works is posted in the same frame as the reference, enabling you to compare the two.
In a recent chat with Bored Panda, Turkan revealed that he came up with the idea of sharing his works online after receiving praise from his teachers and friends. The internet loved it, and the positive reaction prompted him to start producing content on a regular basis.
