Hi Allen,

This is absolutely beautiful work.  Well-captured and interesting technique using the markers. 

Hi Terry! Thanks for the compliment :-). This is 97% Colored Pencil and 3% marker underlay.

Thanks Jesse! I appreciate the kind words and I wish you succes with your colored pencils endeavor
I use ( Blue Tack ) for taking colour pencil off the paper. Just dab it on dont rub. It's very good.

Wow, I thought this was real, now that is what I call hyper-realism! Stunning! I can almost hear the rainforest!

Thank you Sandra :)

Your work is amazing!!~~Wray~~


oh this is really nice.. this is the kind of realism I wanted to get with my soft pastel drawings... I have a long ways to go,, and a lot to learn...

Thank you Maria...I feel the same way about my own work :)

oh wow Allen ... when I grow up I want to be able to colour-pencil just like you!

Thanks Carole! :)
