Hyperrealism is awesome, and artist Heather Rooney shows us why with this portrait of Daisy Ridley as Rey.
The 22-year-old created the work with colored pencils and a sh*t-ton of raw talent, beginning with a light pencil sketch and adding layers of color while blending to create depth and detail. Interestingly, she works in sections—bringing each to a high degree of polish before moving on. It’s amazing to watch.
Hit the jump to check out a timelapse of its creation. In the end you’ll likely still have to tell yourself it’s not really a photograph.
