These awesome photos were done by Ben Heine. More pictures after the break.
This is absolutely amazing… how did you do that? So clever! Maybe you should consider paint on your hand as well (just kidding). But seriously very astonishing, thanks for sharing!
yeah truely amazing
Nice Work. TFS!!
Did you make a photo of the hand holding a piece of white paper and then photoshop the drawing onto it later?
Ha, that’s exactly what I thought too. But nevertheless, it look great!
no idea, i guess that’s how he did. in some of the pics, the hands look like photoshop
Very nice (esp. the 4-eyed cat makes you dizzy), would make a cool demo material for Microsoft Research SecondLight project (search for it on YouTube)
Really cool. I love that illustration-style of drawing.
very cool this pencil eheheh
i like your hand
In some pics, the hand looks like it’s been Photoshoped in.
And for instance, in the one of the atom monument (spheres), there’s a clear shadow under both hand and paper, meaning either the photo was taken of the hand holding the paper over a printed photo, or for some reason, the hand had a drop shadow effect added to it when placed digitally into the shot. This would also mean that the drawing could have been traced (carbon copied) from the original picture, answering how in the hell you get such perfectly matching perspectives between photo and drawing.
Nevertheless, this series is very fresh and pleasing to the eye. Great for some ad campaign (like someone mentioned before). A very graphic and appealing concept.
Adding to my previous observations. Notice that the trolly’s power feed (vertical bar that looks like an antennae) is present in both picture and drawing… so, the train stood still (with passengers) while the guy drew the picture? Don’t think so, again, drawn OVER a print, not in a real environment.
Third picture, how in the hell is he holding the paper so perfectly that if fits seamlessly with the background city, when it seems to just be magically attached to the tip of his thumb.
The lighting on the goat comes from behind it, yet the hand is illuminated from the front, you could argue a flash, but then the goat would also be affected by that light source.
Again, maybe the point is just the final effect, but then this should be under Photomanipulations and not under Photography. Just a suggestion.
I felt somehow dizzy after staring a few seconds at the cat with 4 eyes….
Oscar Blanco – oh for goodness sake! However this is done it’s great whichever way you look at it. This work doesn’t need disecting just go with the flow and enjoy it for what it is.
its really vry astonishing,,,,,,,,,
I cant take it. I ride a bike. Everyday. I love it. Its not cool or uncool. It just is. If you filmed my commute you would puke not because its crazy or dangerous but because its boring. Neu Freds strike again, argghh!
Great list, thanks for the sharing.
It’s hard to believe that these are not phtoshopped. Awesome work
Absolutly blowing pic! I only can’t do anything..lol
Between Pencil and Camera pencil is so good.Pencil make picture most attractive.
