Artist Heather Rooney draws this basketball star portrait of Lebron James with only colored pencils. The portrait looks like it could have been a photograph. Her attention to detail is undeniably apparent in this video. It is almost unreal how close she comes to drawing a realistic Lebron James just from colored pencils.

There is no doubt I wish I had her artistic abilities, but I know that my rendition could never look as realistic as hers. The finished product is flawless, especially since Lebron James is not the easiest person to draw. There is a lot of attention that needs to be taken into when drawing this basketball star, although she makes it look effortless. This is her step-by-step video to show everyone how exactly she draw the basketball star portrait.
