Li jingfeng, from China, is a member of the north American portrait society and a member of the French CFA art foundation. I’m glad to this competition took the first place, because like black and white color, so have a passion for realistic pen drawing, its process is slow and accompanied by loneliness, but I enjoy this process, after each picture to see the complete works, before that kind of happiness will let me forget the pain and tired, I will continue to work hard, to explore in the field of realistic pen drawing.
