Making of Drawing in a Drawing by BenHeine Making of Drawing in a Drawing by BenHeine

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 have 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.

Well, I don't have a premium membership, so unfourtunately I can't write a REAL critique. However, I can write a short one here.
First off, the peice is amazing. I love your style of drawing, and how you make the zebra with a silhouette first. You're very good with drawing the edges of torn paper (I suck at it) and the shading is phenomenal. There's a good show of your progress here, but I would suggest, in the middle when you first made the silhouette, you could have erased a few more lines on the zebra to make it more obvious that's what you did, or typed in steps.

I did not realize how hard your work was to achieve this effect!

It is great that your art is about as good as your photography, EXCELLENT.

Maybe (just maybe), you have what it takes to be a modern day Michelangelo, or Picasso? You can freely express your mind to paper. And you have no fear of telling others how you did it. A mark of a true artist.

Keep doing what you are doing. Don't let inspiration die. Not everyone will love ALL of your work. But I think they will love most of it!

Your dA friend, Gary (I will get there in time. I just hope there is enough time!)

what do you make your drawings with? is that just ink and regular paper, or is it a digital illustration?
