NEW: I'm now making music, please JOIN ME ON SOUNDCLOUD!

Sometimes, you find the key to your problems in the dark moment.
There is always a magic door and a key near you. The light and the
solution aren't far. Sad events can be a source of enrichment too.
The bird I drew isn't an eagle or a parrot, it's a crow. (If you wish,
you can also view a detail and the work in progress here...)

Prints/posters of this artwork now available!

Also purchase a bigger jpg version to have it as a wallpaper!

You can find several interviews about the Pencil Vs Camera
series and about my other concepts as well at this link.

The above picture is dedicated to Caroline, the model.

If perfection exists, then this photograph personifies it.

Either I haven't been exposed to a lot of art or I have seen it all. Whatever it is, I am left truly mesmerized by this stunning monument of creativity.

The background is bright and vibrant. The architecture is cheerful and so are the indigo clothes worn by the lady. But as far as she is concerned, I notice despair and sadness.

But the mighty pencil comes to the rescue. The piece of paper introduces us to hope, to a silver lining, to the light at the end of the tunnel.

The colors fade away but the message only becomes more prominent and brighter.

And suddenly, I feel like one of those two small beings pointing towards the end of despair, the bird.

Visual Art can be beautiful but to be so outstanding, it has achieve an ethereal level of creativity. This photograph does.

HA!
IT'S NOT PERFECT! THE TOP OF THE RIGHT LEG DOESN'T QUITE LINE UP.

HOW DOES IT FEEL TO COME THAT CLOSE TO PERFECTION, AND THEN LOSE IT ALL?

This piece first off is truly stunning work of photography. The drawing itself is also very well placed, and the colours contrast very nicely. At first, it's easy for our mind to connect these two in just one scene, but then later on we realise it's actually a great work of mind trickery. Which, is quite hard to capture with a combination of photos and art.

First, I'll start off with the vision aspect. The paper itself is very well placed to the slightest detail, almost fitting in with most of the landscape (save for very minor details which aren't very crutial to the piece). The colours are vibrant and warm to the eye, which is nice against the grey image. The only reason why I marked it four stars instead of higher is because of the placement of the hand, which is a little bit awkward in the scenery (and hence why I could even make out the illusion from afar). The hand could have been toned slightly differently to fit in with the background, but that's pretty much my only hint on this piece. The vision itself though, shows mastery of skill.

Then, originality. This piece is quite original because even though there have been many paper vs camera pictures, none have this creativity I feel.

Technique is aboslutely fantastic. I know it's been done before but with skill and imagination it's somewhat mind-blowing. Very true to the principles of photography and art, your technique is pretty much mastered. Great job there. :]

This piece has a lot of impact in both how the colours are set out and how you can really get a 'bam' effect once you stumble on to the picture. The blues at the front go very well with her dress, her red hair goes well with the background, the background fades into subtle colours... all this makes for a truly impressive impact.

Sorry about the length of this, but I really thought this piece was superb and deserved a long critique.

Well, absolutely brilliant idea, The concept is GREAT!
I do give you an applause for that, though, also your talent is big, and you have a great model.
Also, you must have a great camera.
Well, so I have spotted some mistakes, the finger seems to have an odd blur, and the had does not seem to blend.
Also, the drawing needs some details at the right wall, and the "shield" on the middle wall, on the paper, seems too small.

I must say, the concept is great, the idea is excellent, though, you have skills, and everything you need, BUT, you lack some details, it can be improved by looking at the background, and not only looking at the point of focus, because that can easily change.

You are an great artist, and I love your work, though, you can always Improve.
This is still a masterpiece, nothing is perfect.

This is extremely breathe taking! I absolutely love it!!! The picture without the the drawing would be amazing but with it, it's unbelievable!! The lighting is amazing, the drawing is amazing! It's just..WOW! The only thing is I wish the the lady's knees were slightly bent so they don't look stiff, the lady's face had more of an expression to match the surrounding events, and that the hand holding the picture didn't look so photo shopped in, but it's just fabulous and I'm absolutely in love!!! This completely original and a great masterpiece! This belongs in a museum!! Keep up the amazing work!!

I would like to highlight the Originality of this amazing project "PENCIL VS CAMERA", this is a overture that give us the photographers a new way to interpret the photography, a new way to combine the real world with the imagination.

This picture particularly caught my attention first of all because the perfect execution, the expression of the girl, the colours of the dress and her red hair make a perfect combination with the background, and obviously the great concept that gives the design overlapped in the photo.

This work requires a big amount of creativity, great talent and moreover a beautiful model.

This work is beautifully detailed, one of my favourite of your 'Pencil Vs. Camera' works.

The pencil strokes are so straight and fine, it appears your work isn't even pencil. The drawing is so smooth, clear and tidy, in comparison with the rougher bricked area of the photograph, this is a wonderful juxtaposition.

The model is also dressed wonderfully, her hair clashing nicely with her clothes, and her shoes blending into the wall as she appears to attempt to walk up it. I like how she appears rested and relaxed even lying on hard uncomfortable ground.

The choice of bird is dark and forboding, yet in your case it is delivering hope and salvation. This is also a great spin off the norm.

A beautiful work, and I love what you have done with these already fantastic photos to create your own surreal spin and include a deeper meaning.
