Pencil Vs Camera - 72

Choose Peace, not violence.

Bringing a 3D effect in the Pencil Vs Camera series.
More of an experimental work for future projects.
You can view the rough sketch in progress here.

Read my comprehensive tutorial explaining how 
I made this artwork on

See the whole "Pencil Vs Camera" album

Note 1: Parts of the paper have been cut at the end to
give a stronger 3D illusion.

Note 2: The thin paper was moving each time I was
adding charcoal/pencil strokes due to a small space
between the wall and paper. That was quite annoying.
Next time I do this, I might put the large paper directly
on the floor so that it's more stable and lets me add
some more details.

Note 3: See how stretched and wrong the perspective
of the drawing looks from the opposite point of view.

What I see is a guy trying to stop the gun while the dove does hold him in place it is trying to offer peace. I love how the wall looks like it is crumbling, although I also see this as a reflection of something more I can't seem to give it words. The gun and dove are representations of something more than what they are, but once again I can't really put into words what I am thinking. To me it's more of someone stepping up to end violence while at the same time you can't really see where it's coming from to stop it. Sounds crazy, but that is what I see in this. You have a reign on the dove while it has a confinement on you as well.

I asume the revolver is your favorite type of gun, or perhaps you find it the easiest to draw, or most recognizable? Either way I can see you have a lot of fun with your art, and that's what keeps artist going, (of course a few "Great job's" and "Nice art's" are a big help too). Becoming a part of your artwork is a really cool and fun way to show your art.
The hand with the gun was well designed and l pops out like a 3D photo. I also enjoy seeing how the hand rips throught the page.
I see the dove keeps you from escaping, a nice touch to the drawing, and very creative. I would've drawn a chain or some, but the dove was impressive.
There's honestly nothing bad I can say about this photo; but if you try something like this again in the future, why not actually tear a hole in the page?

Great idea! Although I have a feeling the poor guy won't make it... Those who fight for peace have to fall always because they refuse weapons even for defence. Which is good. But sad.

STUNNING work, as always! How do you prepare the drawings (in general; not just this) so that the perspective becomes right from the photography angle. Computer simulation? Projectors? Guts?

I like composition, you the gun to move ones eye back towards you. Also you composition all makes motion. You look at you, the dove, and the gun again. Your shading is good to do you have someone model or do you imagine it all in your mind?
