Shaun Mckenzie, who goes by the name of NeeYellow on social media, is an insanely-talented artist who specializes in hyper-realistic color pencil drawings that look like photographs.

The young Australian artist spends anywhere from 60 to 80 hours creating his photorealistic masterpieces, and looking at the degree of detail in some of his works it’s easy to see why he spends so much time on them. To be fair, that is just the average time required to complete a drawing; he has finished some in as “few” as 15 hours, but he has also spent over 280 hours on one of his drawings. It’s painstaking, laborious process that requires mountains of patience is what I’m trying to say.

Shaun has been posting timelapse videos and tutorials on his YouTube channel for about four years now, but he has also built an impressive following on other social media platforms, like Instagram and Twitter. It’s unclear if he is currently selling his stunning drawings or if he takes commissions, but I’m sure there are plenty of people who would pay handsomely for some of his works.


Shaun Mckenzie is just the latest of a number of hugely talented artists who can create photo-like artworks with colored pencils. If you’re into this type of art, check out the photo-like drawings of Emanuele Dascanio, the ultra-realistic portraits of Sheila Giovanni, or the stunning portraits of Alena Litvin.
