Beautifully Photorealistic Colored Pencil Drawings

Time and time again we're blown away by the skilled hands of artists who are equipped with mere pens and pencils. The photorealistic work of artist Amy Robins is no exception. The UK-based illustrator manages to capture every minute detail in the face of her subjects with color pencils. She is especially proficient at recreating the glistening human eye. It's remarkable the way she illustrates even the reflection of one's own eyelashes in the eye's iris.
