This is a photo I took in Lille, France. I also made the rough sketch...

I do not especially support polygamy, this is just a visual idea ^^

Thank you all very much for the constructive feedbacks!

See the whole "Pencil Vs Camera" album

See THIS VIDEO showing 18 Pencil Vs Camera images in
progress (with a small animation and an original music).

Love Is

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

Love is the one way for me
My heart of a burning need
Playing the simple and free
For everything it can read

Itís walking in slow or fast
Making its shine or dark red
Some of its steps shall last
Others are already now dead

Feelings have flicker wings
Some are goods others bad
That of endurence still sings
Others for fun merely had

i'v worked alot in retail in the past, and for some reason i find this hilarious! i didn't think of polygamy or cheating, to me it's almost like the mannequins are banding together in love to conquer the emptiness of the retail world! mannequins unite!

This whole serious is phenomenal, I can't believe how you've come up with so many. If it were me, it would have been just one drawing and that would be it. So kudos to you for creativity and ideas :D

I love this hybrid artistic form you have going on. I think I love it even more because you didn't try to replicate what was originally in the photograph, but instead gave your own flavor to the scenery. I feel this is the best way to show people how an artist's mind's eye works because you don't see just what's given to you, but you play with reality. The cartooning style only enhances this further and the minimalism of the doodles contrasted with the saturation of the photographs beautifully juxtapose. Nice portfolio!

Hey! ^^

Would you tell me if there is a trick that the background and the foreground get both in focus? O.o
I don't know how to take the photo...

Thank you! <3

I love the whole idea of the image- it makes me want to try something like that out. I love how the woman and man are reaching across in the sketch to hold hands. It's beautifuly well done, Hun.

Would you mind if I used the idea? It is...simply lovely.
