I have a soft spot for photorealistic pencildrawings... I can't believe how good some of her work are, the girl with the big glasses , the leg-letters... She is also one of the few I know that has several different styles she is equally good at, even though I left out some of her "computerized" drawings that I don't like so much. And oh, she has a website with nothing on yet : www.jocandraw.com

great stuff. she definitely has an eye for color..and the fact that most of her work seems to be lacking in strong lines yet it's perfectly defined, it only makes it more intriguing.

thanks for bringing that in, angie!.

This work is great too. Did she work with pictures which she took or it's just draw?
