Approach to creating realistic colored pencil drawings


This is the second largest note in Kenya after 1000 shilling note. The drawing took me approximately 4 hrs and 98% of the time was spent on just the details. I believe that for one to achieve great realism in hyper realistic or photo realistic drawings, one should pay a lot of attention on the details no matter how tiny they are, also light and shadow is quite an important factor. Knowing where your light is coming from helps a lot in creating realistic drawings. It helps one put the light and shadows in the right place and also lighten up small details like on the 500 shilling note, you can see how those small folds are standing out….

Contrast too is an important factor that many realistic artists don’t put much focus on, this can be achieved by mixing colored pencils with markers or paints to increase the contrasts because i believe they have a very high contrast.

Watch me draw that 500 shilling note on my YouTube Channel and let me know what you think on the comments.

Thank you see you soon!!!!

Drawing Harley Quinn


Who doesn’t love Harley Quinn from suicide squad… i love her personality in the suicide squad and i’m really sorry it came out late but the full drawing is now available on my YouTube channel.¬†

I also did one of Will Smith about a month ago, also make sure to check it out.

Drawing Cookie Lyon


Beautiful, smart and super talented. Her role in Empire is what moved me to draw her.
Now I’m working on Hakeem Lyon of which is coming very soon.

Drawing Ivy Levan


For a woman with such an incredible voice and beauty that resembles the stars in the sky can never go ‘undrawn’. Never!

Drawing Winnie Harlow


I first saw her on Eminem and Sia’s song guts over fear. It made me feel confident that there is nothing impossible for a willing hand! With a skin condition, she’s an incredible model of which sincerely speaking i have never seen someone so determined like her before! simply because those who had the passion lacked determination and lost hope because of a small scratch on the face. I think God created us all not to suffer in this world but to aspire, shoot for the stars regardless of who we are. It’s no wonder someone without or with one leg can stand up and become among the fastest people in the world! it’s no irony, wait for the paralympic games and see it for yourself. People who are willing and determined always prove the dictionary wrong that the word impossible doesn’t exist! look at Helen Keller, they proved that so long as God has given you a head with a brain in it you have no excuse not to aspire.

Drawing tribal woman


We live in a world where we are over saturated by different kinds of people who continue to define and redefine culture. It’s who we are, the way of life.
   Another woman drawing! I believe women are the experts when it comes to preserving our culture for future generations.
   I used my own imagination, I didn’t focus on any tribe because i love making art my own way. I hope you love it!

Drawing my favorite childhood cartoons


This were the kind of things that really inspired me to become an artist since childhood, cartoons. As i said, it’s the little things that makes life great and worth memorable. This is what brought me here, and not a single day will it ever slip my mind. That’s why i drew it.

Drawing Harry Potter


I ‘m pretty sure by now anyone above 18 years of age has ever watched or heared of the Harry Potter series.
I was inspired to make this work of art since it reminds me of my childhood,  when I’d read it’s novel during prep time.
