Sanil Chitrakar, whose second name literally translates into an “artist” in his mother tongue, is so unbelievably good in drawing that his talent is now keenly followed across the world. His fans include one of the most familiar sporting personalities of our time, Brazilian footballer Ronaldinho Gaucho who last February posted a tweet about Mr Chitrakar on his Twitter account.
As if this scribe needed more convincing about the Japan-based artist’s fame, Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos retweeted his short video just this afternoon as southasia.com.au was interviewing him online. The 53-second video shows Mr Chitrakar working his pencils to draw a sketch of the Real Madrid captain. Below video shows how the 35 year old brings the legendary player to real life. Right in front of your eyes. With mere pencils.

Just as the Spanish captain, Ronaldinho also tweeted the Nepalese artist’s video on this twitter account on February 7 drawing nearly 1500 retweets.
