Self-Taught Artist Will Amaze You With Her Realistic Celebrity Drawings
Heather Rooney is no ordinary self-taught artist. This 20-year-old art student works her magic with colored pencils to create amazingly realistic portraits of celebs. Yes, you know, colored pencils— those things that you were using 15 years ago to color in your coloring book, barely staying within the lines. (It’s okay, it happens to all of us.)
Rooney’s photorealistic drawings have made her a YouTube star with just under 317,000 subscribers. She has drawn everyone from LeBron James Dwyane Wade to entire main cast of Harry Potter, with her drawing of ‘Harry Potter’ Daniel Radcliffe racking up more than 1.6 million views. Her second most popular drawing is a recreation of the famous Oscars 2014 selfie that broke the Twitter record for most retweeted tweet of all time.
