Pencil Vs Camera - 10

© Ben Heine || Facebook || Twitter ||

NEW: Prints now available!

This is a photo I took from Montmartre's hill in Paris, France. I also
made the quick drawing on paper showing a tyrannosaurus holding guns :D

Thank you for the positive feedbacks!

See the whole "Pencil Vs Camera" album

>>> Review from THE DAILY MAIL for this picture: "A dinosaur goes
on the rampage... but city dwellers have nothing to fear from this pencil
drawn monster"
(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)

Random features:


A poem by Peter S. Quinn

I had to shoot my way out
Because people were getting rough
They say I move too much about
Like a gangster getting tough

I only wanted some France food
But they said I wasn't polite
They thought my attitude was rude
And eating folks caused a fright

I know I’m only a little dinosaur
And I’m merely a tourist here
My clumsiness is in peace not war
And we ruled once everywhere


All I am saying
Is give dinosaur a chance
The little fellow is just playing
He wants to see you dance

He’s much for the rumba beat
And wants to see you all hop
He’s got the guns and big feet
So dance, dance on - don't stop!

Much talk is about his robbery
But he only stole some apples
He needs to have foods for free
So he can do more wiggles


They say I’m a mere joke
A Ben Heine’s pencil stroke
That might not be telling a lie
Though I have a different alibi

I was sent from gangster’s dinosaur
Since their town isn’t safe anymore
They are attempting to come back
Through a time machine walk

This is just the beginning of the end
I’m the 1st one to Earth send
The guns are just extra kick
Next comes my fiancé Ms Dinosaur

i knew it! dinosaurs are real!
this is so funny mr. Heine, the city is so calm and peaceful, until the dinosaur comes with the militaries guns! okay, im getting silly.
the idea of the dino coming back and wanting to rule the earth again is funny. T-Rex was the biggest carnivore back in the day. is that a meteorite in the background? uh-oh he better run before extinction comes and gets him.
all and all mate this is not only a very well done peace, but it is also a good laugh. keep up the good work!
love ya mate, Yami

It's a dinosaur with guns in Paris, complete with a poem. I could end my critique there, but there's a hundred word minimum and the system won't let me.

The photography isn't as good as some of the others in this series, but in the end, I had to choose this one to leave my critique on. I will say that it's a fantastic idea which you usually execute well.

In any case, the dinosaur is drawn really well. Tyrannosaurus is one of the most difficult dinosaurs to draw, in my opinion, and guns are especially difficult. The mark around his eye looks a little weird since you didn't give as much detailing to the rest of his body, though.

I have to say though, you need to blend the edges of the hand a little better. It looks somewhat shopped.

And as for the idea, it's possibly the best thing I've ever seen conceived by a photographer, and for that, I thank you.

All in all, I love this picture! Keep up the great work.
