Shaun Mckenzie, A.K.A. Neeyellow

Recently featured by George Takei on his always-interesting Facebook feed, this is the astonishingly photo-real drawing of artist Shaun Mckenzie, A.K.A. Neeyellow. Using only Faber Castell Polychromos colored pencils on Stonehenge paper 250gsm, Neeyellow is able to replicate photos in the most incredible way. I can remember my first attempts at painting where I tried to train myself to see all the different colors and shades in everyday objects, but he sees things I can’t, no matter how hard I try!

I wasn’t able to find out anything about the young artist, but judging by his skill, I imagine that will change soon.

In the meantime, we’ll just have to be content with the time-lapse videos of his works in progress.

You can follow Neeyellow on his YouTube channel and on Instagram and Facebook.

  2. That’s very impressive. The ability to recognize exactly which pencil is right for that specific area of the portrait is pretty astounding.

  3. Wow! So impressive! I watercolor, and usually don’t capture such detail.

  4. Unreal! I would love to know what kind of erasers he uses (DOES he use erasers?!?) and what kind of pencil sharpeners. I’d also be curious to know just how many different shades are in his arsenal of pencils! This is inspiring me; a pencil was always my favourite drawing tool. But this? This is insane. These are the Mona Lisas of pencil drawings!
