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).

Critique by TheLadyCurious May 28, 2012, 6:45:41 PM
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.
What do you think?

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!

If I haven't mentioned it before, I will now. I freaking love you and your art. Not in a creepy way -- in a respective way that says "OMG you are so talented that I am insanely jealous." That pretty much covers it.

This Pencil Vs Camera reminds me that music styles come and go but the classics will persevere without the need of flashy ways to remind the public of its existence. Classics in the musical sense become embedded into our social mind.

Love it :)
Imagine is birds changed their song styles every decade, would be crazy! haha.
