The Eighth Wave

By JanBoruta
I shouldn't post it here because of bad quality :(

Comissioned image; 50x70cm; HB, 2B, 4B graphite pencils. It shall be considered my tribute to the magnificent Aivazovsky. He painted the famous "Ninth Wave". :)

I didn;t have any time to scan it and put it together, so I had to use a camera :( I had to heavily manipulate the photo to achieve the effect similar to the real-life piece. Eat me.

Tom :)

They're going to destroy all their sails, leaving them out in that kind of weather! :o
The detail in your ships never ceases to amaze me..

Chciałam pod niektórymi Twoimi pracami zamieścić jakiś comment ale zajełoby mi to tyle czasu, że pozwolę sobie napisać pod tylko tą, że wszystkie zamieszczone ostatnio są GENIALNE. Pozdrawiam :)

It's stunning! Thrilling emotion! Love those black waves and clouds! Very mysterious too. Brings the book Treasure Island to my mind.

Tomu sa hovorí sila ceruziek! Má to fakt ťažkú atmosféru, drsné kontrasty a celkovo si to zaslúži +fav :D

It's amazing to see such violence and power in a pencil piece. If I had any comment to make, it would be to demonstrate more wind with the pennants and flags.

If this is bad quality, I can't imagine to think oh how much better it is in person to see.

I like the picture :) It's a bit rough, but it fits with the idea. And your storm looks just great, it's a breathtaking view :nod:

Thank you :) What do you mean by "rough"? The quality of the photo or something else? :)
Svera's avatar
I mean the pencil strokes. They seem a bit harsh with the ship, but maybe that's just me. Or it is your style :) But as I said, I like the picture as it is :nod:

I think that the photo ate much of the initial quality, in real life it all looks proper :S
Svera's avatar
I know what you mean, it's the same with my pictures *sigh*
