Update: I've made this small animation based on the above image

Just a joke. Bless our Lord! I took this photo from a plane and
also made the rough sketch. I had tons of ideas for the sentence
on the paper, it was really difficult to make a choice... =D

I still wonder... who are we? What's the real purpose of our
existence? Love and happiness are the 2 main words that
come to my mind. But after? Any answers?

See the whole "Pencil Vs Camera" album

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

Limerick

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

There´s a strange man called Cloud
He lives above the crowd,
We thought him God
For he was odd,
But he's just and old man and proud!

Who do you think YOU are, Ben Heine? Playing God, replacing reality with your own drawings? This just about sums up this entire "Pencil Vs. Camera" body of work. The artist dares to challenge what exists by showing what would, should, or could be through imagination.

The composition is simple and I like it that way. It works because it's immediately legible.

The cloud in the photo is perfect. I've always thought that cumulus clouds look regal and standable. The birds are a cute little detail, too. They add a little dimension to the drawing.

Overall, superb work. This is one of my favorites. I can't wait to see more.
What do you think?

Love it!! Its a light joke but in a way i can understand...most of our times we say "who does God think he is to make us this and that"...and sometimes we forget to think and ask if it was the other way around how does God react??

I think you just grasped it so well, i laughed a little by simplicity of the Joke and dont worry, God above sometimes i like to think even he has a sense of humor :aww:

Like always love your work :aww:

I think this one might be my favorite of your Pencil Vs Camera project. I feel like it's fairly simple, in comparison to your other pieces in this album, and that's why I love it. Generally I see Pencil Vs Camera as Imagination Vs Real World. But, one of my favorite things about Pencil Vs Camera is that theoretically, you don't know what's behind the paper. Specifically here, in some realm of existence the little man could be there- he could be God, he could be Cloud or he could just be your conscience- and he's saying, 'Who do you think you are? What are you doing here? Why?'. And I feel like that's what this piece says to me- He could be there, just beyond the paper. It's something to think about.
