While some might consider colored pencils as mere art supplies for kids, more and more professional artists are using the common utensils to create awe-inspiring works that are a whole lot more than just childish scribbles. One creative to do so is Australian artist Georgina Kreutzer who creates vibrant, hyperrealistic color pencil drawings that showcase her incredible artistic skill.
From animal portraits to flashy sports cars, it seems there’s no end to what Kreutzer can draw. In one of her most recent pieces, the talented artist uses a combination of colored pencils and watercolor paint to render a giant, purple-hued moon. Rocky surfaces and lunar craters are detailed in a myriad of luscious, cosmic hues.
In other works, Kreutzer creates a series of drawings depicting pairs of men’s Oxford-style shoes. “Shoes are possibly the most ubiquitous design item in history,” she says, “I love sketching them.” From shiny leather uppers to decorative stitching, each pair is so detailed, it looks like it could be lifted straight off the page.
