When you think about illustrations, most of the times you might picture in your head a super colorful image. But not always a colorful illustration will be the prettiest... pencil illustrations can also be rich in beauty and details. But in both cases, black-white or colored illustrations, the beauty will depend on the artist's skills, and here you can see some beautiful pieces by talented artist Mall Licudine, from the Philippines. Although she also makes colored pieces, I must say that I really enjoy her black-white artworks. But these are only a few of them... so please, check out her portfolio for more! She'll definitely enjoy your visit. I hope you like it. Cheers! ;)
It's really cool to see how some artists can explore different mediums to the extreme ways. I never thought that colored pencils could be a good media for realistic portraits until I saw the work of Mario Freire, it creeps me out a lot. You can see more outstanding colored pencil drawings at Mario's DevianArt Gallery.
