Pencil Vs Camera - 17 by BenHeine Pencil Vs Camera - 17 by BenHeine

____________________________________________________

NEW: Prints now available!

Another illusion... Sort of an introduction to another series entitled
"Chess Art" with some optical illusions, strong perspectives and
vanishing points... I took this photo a few days ago and also made
the rough sketch. Thanks for your constructive comments!

See the whole "Pencil Vs Camera" album

>>> Review from THE DAILY MAIL for this picture: "Illusions:
Art, imitating life, imitating art... the artist claims his technique is a
"new visual invention"
(Kerry McQueeney, The Daily Mail, Sept. 2011)

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

Grasp the Mental Game

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

Life is like a chess play
One by one they move:
Pawns to a Queen – away
Make attack to improve!

Square to square advance
Grasp the mental game
Give the King his chance
Have a patience to be tame

Carefully observe adversary
Wrong move can’t be adjust
Chess art is like all military
No one out there really to trust

I love how you put your hand in the Pencil (not the photograph). I cannot write a real critique because I don't have a premium membership. But I am going to say that I love the way you do these Pencil vs Camera things. You make it work because you are a great artist and photographer. You know just where to put the piece of aper where it lines exactly up with the real world. And do not think of this as a critique because I am not a true artist.

Escher would have LOVED you.
I cannot give a fair critique, as I am not an artist. But I do enjoy good art. Unusual art. Fun art.
You have captured the essence of all three in your medium, so instead of my critique, will you accept my praise?

Love this one! Actually I love all of the ones like this that i've been going through!
Somehow though, I love this one the most. lol. Maybe it's the curve of the walls, the happy feeling from the guy waving 'hi', the simpleness of it all or just the optical illusion sort of look. Either way, it's great and I love it!
