    Robin Williams Portrait

    As a quilter I found it fascinating to watch how the artist uses light and shadow to create the three-dimensional look. Very talented young lady!

    Wow!!! She is AMAZING!!!
    Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today.

    Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything, but you still can't help but chuckle when you see one tumble down the stairs.

    Looks like real live flesh. You can almost see his pores and feel his "almost 5 o'clock" shadow. Amazing

    Wonderful. It is still hard to believe she is drawing that.

    4:52 at that speed. I can only wonder how long this actually took. It was fun watching the change of the color of the pencils. I greatly admire people who can do this.

    I found her process fascinating, the way she completed one section then moved on to the next. What talent.

    I thought it would be the eyes you would recognize first, but it was as soon as she put detail on the nose

    I don't understand how anyone can draw a picture of someone and make it "really look like them". I am always amazed at how a police artisit can draw a person on paper from someone's "description". Truly amazing.
