Fair and Square by Cataclysm-X Fair and Square by Cataclysm-X
Making art with pencils these days :#1:

I had this saved on my computer for a couple of months and I never really thought about posting it until now :D


The idea was to show a windmill pattern by placing the pencils in a shape of a square and rotate it by 45. However, the picture seemed idle and after a few changes on the colour sequence, I noticed it needed something more. I began to flip and rotate the picture until I got this fairly attracting pattern.
Kind of hypnotizing in its own weird way, isn't it?


The pencils I photographed were taken from my marvelous Bruynzeel pencil can which I used for my Perception and Reconcile drawings :eager:


I'm using them for a new conceptual self portrait. As strange as it sounds, people asked me for a new self portrait 8D so I'm drawing one with a twist! You'll see once it's done. C:


Cheers everyone! :heart: Have a great Sunday!

Suggester Says: The colors are abstract and the perspective makes it very ineteresting to look at. You get to wondering how he changed the picture to make it look like it does.

This is really cool! :-)
It makes me think of vibrant floor tiles like for a kids' area. Or something. :-)

I'm guessing you had to put down 44 pencils to make this?
I just want to guess how!

Out of all the amazing things in your gallery, THIS gets a DD?

XD. I mean, It's pretty awesome but not half as inspiring as your portraits. It doesn't show your technique at all...

Thank you for the err.. compliment? :XD:

I actually think this suits well to my little collection of Daily Deviations I've received so far :) I got 2 DDs for realism pieces before, 1 for a stamp and another one for a tutorial I've written. So now I got one for a photograph too (: quite excited about this!!

after I got to read line I totally decided on getting a new avvie with a female this time. People keep assuming I'm Misha (the guy in my avatar)! But I love Misha though... hmm I need to think about this a little more!

lol exactly. I've had guy avvies for the past 5 years. From new to old I had Misha, Sherlock, Misha & Vincent Valentine. Before that I used avatars made of artworks from Luis Royo, and another cat picture :lol:
And now I got my own animated picture haha.

How many different avvies have you had? Or is this your one and only you've ever used? :)

I really like your new avatar! :la: Prepare to get hit on left and right. :D This has been my one and only avatar. It's of an old 20"x27" colored pencil portrait I did 15 years ago. I might put my ugly mug in that tiny box at some point... I don't know :lol:
