Pencil Vs Camera - 66 by BenHeine Pencil Vs Camera - 66 by BenHeine

Music, music, music... Here is a bird with some electronic power :)
I took the pic and made the sketch as usual. I was sitting outside
of a restaurant in Lisbon, Portugal. Several birds came and moved
from one chair to another hoping to draw my attention to receive
some food (I gave them all my bread). If you wish, you can also
view the sketch in progress and some preparatory photos here...

See the whole "Pencil Vs Camera" album

>>> Review from THE DAILY MAIL for this picture:
"A bird blares out music from a boombox around his neck: Ben
begins by taking a picture of an everyday scene then covers part
of the shot with a sketch - transforming the bland backdrops into
intriguing scenarios"
(Matt Blake, The Daily Mail, July 2012).

Update: See this video showing 18 Pencil Vs Camera
images in progress (with a small animation and music).

You work is so amazing. I love the bright vibrant yellow and blues. They contrast nicely with each other. The dark blue sets off the yellow beautifully. The birds are so cute! The detail in the feathers is just mesmerizing! The bokeh in the background is outstanding! Give the entire picture a magical, whimsical feel to it.
I love the pencil drawing too. It's sweet and comical. And brilliantly drawn. Makes me smile. The lighting on here is great. I like how you caught the bokeh circles on the paper as well. How do you do that?

On a side note, I don't use the stars to rate art. I disagree with the idea of using a star system to grade art. I think art is like poetry, it means something different to everyone.

Beautiful work. I love the concept, excellent execution.

To deal with this photo, I have to write a critique on what I would think about this, and what the photo is.

Vision: As in my critique on "Pencil v.s. Camera - 65", the photography's all the range. There are two birds in this picture. The pencil drawing of a bird looks very realistic. Background and props are in perfect order.
Originality and Technique: With a camera like Canon EOS, there is absolutely a 100% chance of taking photos like these. You are much more skilled in combined photography and drawing.
Impact: This is what I really like. Conceptual photos are much more the type. I still am very impressed.

Keep it up, Mr. Heine!

I'm afraid possibly unlike the other 35,020 people who have viewed this I really do not know what to say. I am simply "blown away" by the talent in front of my eyes. What a wonderful artist you are and what a fantastic imagination. I could view your work all day. Thank you so much for sharing this with us on d.a.
