Every once in a while, something on Instagram makes us stop scrolling and we just end up staring at our screens in awe. Whereas we like to think we’re talented in some ways, one thing we absolutely cannot do is draw. Sure, we can scribble you a stick man and draw on our eyebrows (#onfleek) but if you asked us to paint Zoella or doodle Dodie Clarke then we’d be hopeless.
Thankfully, a ton of you out there are incredible when it comes to art and take to Instagram and Tumblr to show off your skills. We could list so many fan art accounts that we love but today we’re going to focus on the wonderful work of Samanta (AKA Samantalesiak on Instagram)
A self taught artists, Samanta uses her Instagram account to show portraits of celebrities and YouTubers alike. From the early stages to the finished masterpiece, Samanta has deservedly earned over 5,000 followers and had her work liked by everyone from Joe Sugg to Sprinkle of Glitter.
Here, we’ve picked some of our favourites pieces of work by the talented Polish lady.

Want to die of cute? Of course you do! Here’s a sketch of Baby Glitter.

And also the friendship between Troye and Tyler.
It’s not all about the big YouTubers, we love this drawing of MsRosieBea!
