Drawing in A Drawing by BenHeine Drawing in A Drawing by BenHeine
Ben Heine || Facebook || Twitter || www.benheine.com
____________________________________________________

This is a full drawing with a surreal touch ^^

The architectural background is inspired by the main hall of the "Palais des Beaux Arts" of Lille, France. I visited this place some time ago.

I'm glad I can finally share this with you. I'm now going to work on some new "Pencil Vs Camera" images. Thanks for your comments and feedbacks.

A drawing in a drawing

A poem by Katie Gabrielle

Many a place
I come to see
A drawing in a drawing
Where zebras
Run free
Cut in two pieces
Or maybe three?
Where does the artist
get his gold stars?
Maybe he learns it
From the zebras on Mars?
Carry on with your talent
And make us all proud
Or blast off to Venus
For crying out loud!

(thanks Katie!)

VISION

Okay, so I can't say much about vision, only because I don't actually know what deviantART means to imply when they say that. But what you have envisioned is unusually excellent. Frankly, I've never seen this [specific] setup before.


ORIGINALITY

You were the original person to come up with the "drawing in a photo" idea [at least I've heard you are], and this is just adding on to that original idea.


TECHNIQUE

Your style is smooth but solid, leaving no extremely rigid spots in the drawing. It seems you've used a mixture of Cross Hatching and Blur shading on this, and is came out well.



IMPACT

I don't know if there was an impact, but that is opinionated, therefore making whatever amount of stars I give you automatically biased. So here's 3. Just above average.



Well, I probably didn't go very in depth, but it was mostly for the rating. Overall I like this piece a lot, whether or not I understand the underlying concept. I would like to ask, however, why the zebra is cut in half? Seems a bit strange.
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
6 out of 7 deviants thought this was fair.

Reminds of the cell -horror movie-. :heart: I found this calming although its a zebra in half but your shading and energy from the actual penship is soothing

I don't know how you thought of a zebra, fitting in with the lines of that architecture, but it was a great idea!
