Colored pencils art by Heather Rooney

Heather Rooney, 23 year old self-taught illustrator specialising in photorealistic colored pencil graphite drawings.  She is incredible in drawing. Her channel seems pretty new but she’s got A LOT of videos. She started drawing from her high school itself.  Later on she challenged herself to draw photorealistic drawings and continue improving her techniques. She spent majority of her time in drawing portraits with color pencils. Being in the age of growing social media platforms, she decided to share her lengthy process online through time-lapse videos. She began drawing and filming portraits of people that a broad audience would be familiar with, including celebrities, athletes, and public figures. Along with her studies as an art student, she continued doing this throughout her college career. This generated a large global audience for her work, with over 1 million subscribers.
