Photorealistic Colored Pencil Drawing Portraits

An artist that is embracing 21st century technology, to allow her work as an artist.
Heather Rooney, started with portraits in high school and has worked hard to get to where she is now.  She gained notoriety thanks to her social media accounts and especially YouTube videos. For centuries artists have resorted to patronage, in order to make a living as an artist, to pay for supplies and for living expensive.  The trick was to find a rich person, or successive rich people that would pay for a commission or commissions.  Now the model has been turned on its head, instead of having one person paying the total amount, you find a lot of people that pay small, different amounts and for each level, you get different perk or reward.  For example: step-by-step progress images, real time drawing videos, q&a videos, drawing tips, tutorials, to name but a few.  It's as true today, as it has always been, finding a way of getting you work seen and having a strong unique style to share, is what is going to get you noticed and allow you to succeed.
