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?
