Hey all!
So I think that my boyfriend and I have a good artistic system going on. He takes lovely digital pictures, like this gorgeous hummingbird:



and then I take his image and draw it in colored pencil:



here are some close ups...

Digital Picture:


Colored Pencil drawing:


and here they are side by side for a comparison:


I love the photo he took and I think that the drawing came out nicely (it's much brighter in person). What do you think?

Cheers

I love your stylization of it. Watch your ellipses though. Ellipses are never pointy.. just round and aesthetic Smiley

I like it, the drawing is kind of psychedelic.

That is very cool.  I like how you stylized the out-of-focus background.

I like how the drawing seems even more detailed than the photo: that's really cool.

Thanks for the nice comments everyone! I had a lot of fun drawing this and I was pleased with how it turned out. I think the background works very well in that it is bright and interesting but also helps focus your attention on the hummingbird. Thanks again!
