As a result of ultra-thin lines carefully-placed shading, the designs of Ohmori, and also a remarkably steady hand seem as though they're going to jump off the page. They are so immaculate, in actuality, that his Twitter crowd is currently calling him a 'genius' and 'mad' within the quantity of dedication he puts to his portraits. His most recent effort, which has yet to be finished, depicts a nut and bolt, while his 'signature bit' is regarded as a stunning headshot of British model Sophia Blackbrough.
