  • Thanks :). I always loved pencils, because you can do so much with this simple tool. But I wish I'd be more patient, because I admire artsits who draw photorealistic pictures and sit in front of them for weeks.

  • Thanks :).
    Yes, you can see my name (and nickname) on some of them. And they are not that good I would steal them ;).


    Here are some pictures drawn with colored pencils. Or do you call them crayons in English? I always wondered if there a difference...

    They're called either "coloured pencils" or "pencil crayons" in British English, I'm not sure if Americans use "pencil crayon" or not. Usually if an English speaker just says "crayon" then they mean these things:



    I think the confusion comes from crayon being the French word for pencil.

    Absolutely LOVE this one. =)

  • Thanks :)


    I would love to draw more interesting stuff, but most of the time I am lazy and just draw fan art. This is the newest picture, inspired by the LOST episode "S.O.S." Ben is my favorite character and the best TV villain ever!
    It's india ink.


  • Wow. I can't put into words how amazing that is. Wow. :clap::clap::clap::clap::clap::clap::clap:

  • Janina, this is excellent in every way.
    I could NEVER draw like that! It's amazing.
    I especially the most recent picture you posted in this thread....
    I really love the way you captured the texture, the facial expression and the shadows.


    10/10! :clap:
