Pencil Vs Camera By Ben Heine

Pencil Vs Camera By Ben Heine

Last week while I was on the website, I stumbled upon some cool photographs/sketches by this artist called Ben Heine. He actually calls these beautiful works Pencil VS Camera!. I found them to be so interesting that I wanted to share them with all of you. Although there are only 19 in his collection so far, they are definitely worth showcasing. Hope you enjoy as much as I do.

This is the legendary "tram 28" in Lisbon, Portugal


I took this photo in Belgium. I also drew the rough sketch.


I took this photo in England and also made the rough sketch


I took this photo a few days ago and also drew the rough sketch...


I took this photo in the "Palais des Beaux Arts" of Lille, France (I also made the drawing)


This is a view of Utrecht from the Dom Tower, which is the tallest church tower in the Netherlands, at 112.5 metres (368 feet) in height. I took the photo and drew the 2 sketches


A photo I took yesterday in Poland (I also made the rough sketch). Yes I know, there are no Koalas in Poland but there is one in my mind, struggling against extinction.


This is a view of the countryside in Braives, Belgium. I took the photo and drew the sketch (I wanted to make a very simplified composition on the paper to match the landscape).


A sculpture, a photo, a drawing and friendship, all in once!


This is sort of experimental...


I took this photo in the Belgian countryside


I took this photo near Brussels (I also made the sketch)


I took this photo a few days ago in Poland and also made the rough sketch. The painting on the wall is a reproduction of the "Girl with a Pearl Earring". I really love this painting by Johannes Vermeer but I thought a "modern" version of if would be cool
