    This guy reminds me of an artist in my home town who does pen and ink drawings in the street. Things often look deceptively simple when the person doing them is highly skilled.

    thats awesome D: i want one

    K1000 is apparently about US$1.40. A bargain, if you ever decide to go to Yangon.

    I kept wanting the kid to just stop because it was so good. But he didn`t add too much. Very talented.

    All this in 6 minutes... To copy pictures with a pencil, it takes me a few days with 2 hours every day. Maybe it`s because it`s a pencil, maybe because I`m usually not as focused.

    I wish I could be like him, but I rather focus on pencil. I will remember his techniques though.

    In fifty years, when Antiques Road Show asks about the provenance, you point them to the YouTube video.

    Yes, this is clearly Bob Ross incarnated. The kid is about the right age, eh?

    This is hardly art; it`s just formulaic pap. The references to Bob Ross are right on the money.

    If my conversion is correct, you`d pay about $1.25 for one of these paintings... I want all of them, right now. I`ve been looking for new decoration for my room.

    My concern isn`t whether or not it`s like `Bob Ross`, but the paint he`s using. Burma, and other countries like China, are notorious for using lead based paints.

    I don`t know who Bob Ross is (don`t worry, I`ll Google him) but it reminds me of Rolf Harris)

    @Carmium:"This is hardly art; it`s just formulaic pap."
    Really? Then define art. So many Critics so few producing.

    I`m guessing somebody beat me to it, but this is seriously like if someone actually learned everything Bob Ross taught and made a living off it.
