Most of us know what it’s like to fill a page in a notebook or a piece of paper with our doodles and sketches. However, these artists like to work a little bigger.

Sometimes even a typical 8 x 11 in. piece of paper can feel daunting to an illustrator. That’s why the work of the artists featured in this collection is all the more impressive. The works featured in this post are at least poster-sized, large scale illustrations that really make an impact with their immense detail and flawless technique. We can only imagine the intense focus, time, and not to mention the steady hands needed to create these magnificent works.

We encourage you to visit these artist’s impressive portfolios to see more of their work.
