Forty-nineTrips Around the Sun by arminmersmann Forty-nineTrips Around the Sun by arminmersmann
Pencil on board 15” x 32”

Thank to all of you who have commented on this work in progress, I am still trying to get back to all of you. The drawing is finally done. I wanted this as dark as possible without being undistinguishable. The shirt/sweater has a very fine weave but stays pretty much in the dark. The light comes mainly form the window in the back with some secondary lighting form the front. The two-point perspective was influenced by some of Escher’s work , on to the next one….

what is two point perspective?

:iconarminmersmann:

Hard to explain in a few words. One point perspective is the spot on the horizon where railroad tracks disappear. Two point is where the adjacent sides of a shape disappear on the horizon... probably easier to Google it.

To say that I'm impressed would be a lie, to say that this work is wonderful would offend your talents.

wow, once again a fantasticly detailed piece...would work better if the piece was taller for some reason I think (either that, or I'm just obsessed with that kinda shaped piece :p).

seriously, stunning skill you have there

With "two-point perspective" you mean that kinda fish eye effect? I like very much Escher's pieces, but they are mostly a tecnical mystery to me...

The Escher influence here is evident. Great work, as always.

looking at the drawing was pretty weird at the first time. i think there's somethin confusing between the glasses and eyes... but by looking at it a bit longer everything seems to fit. :confused:
