Power of the pen

Artist CJ Hendry has taken the art of the pen to a new level.  Or at least I think so, maybe you will disagree.

She has drawn such a lifelike version of a basketball that you think she has taken a photo.

What do you think?  Do you think it is even more impressive if I told you it was done in a technique called stippling also known as dots?

Does it feel more impressive when you see the scale of these boxing gloves?  If you want to see more of her work you should look her up, she has an amazing collection.  What object would you draw if you had her talent?

  2. I would love to be able t make life sized drawings of tractors. The coolest thing would to give a drawing of an old put-put to my grand parents. The next coolest thing would to be able to make a whole farm scene wrap around the interiors of different rooms.

  4. This is something I definitely love. It is so detailed in shading and making it look so realistic. I love how the artist is able to make their art work so big, it is not on a little piece of paper. I like how they made an object a lot larger than it actually is. I also like how it is this brings out the shading because they didn't color it. I definitely think this is a great piece of art.

  5. The scale is super impressive, especially because it is done with stippling. If I was as good at this as she is I would make a realistic portrait of someone.

  7. I don't really like the fact that I don't have her talent, but with envy I am impressed. The scale of the objects creates an overwhelming feeling of "woah".

  16. How do people make art like this? That's hard to make with all of the detail and texture and 3D effects involved

  17. I like this girl, she's sporty and she's good at drawing sporty stuff. I really like how its so big and still so clear. Its hard to believe that the spots on the basketball are flat.

  19. I like this picture a lot for a couple of reasons.For one basketball is my favorite sport. I like how much detail there is and how big it is.

  20. This is super good! She did such a good job with detail. I would never be able to put that much detail with just a pen. I actually didn't think it was a pen at first because it was so detailed.

    ReplyDelete
  21. that is a lot of detail with a pen! that would be crazy hard to do. My hand would fall off just doing one of those. those are very impressive. i thought that that was with like paint or fine pen

  26. She is a really good drawer that would take a lot of concentration that I don't have. She made the basket ball look very real, she really emphases the grip of the ball.

  27. She made both drawings very life-like with the 3-dimensional features and added very nice texture.

  28. The basketball is so incredible and the fact that she did it all with pen and was able to make it come alive like that is beyond me. Props to her for her talent. I wish I could draw like this.

  29. This technique looks time consuming but could turn out very life like and cool. If I had this talent I would do it to something like nature because it looks real. She is very talented.

  30. This looks like it would take forever, if I had this skill I would draw my friend Kazia in 3D. Because she's sitting next o me right now. Her attention to detail is amazing, she is goalz.

  33. The size and scale of these drawing are amazing and doing that with a pen seems impossible. If i had her talent i would draw a barn when the sun is setting, the detail she put into this is incredible.

  47. This is very impressive. You can tell he used a lot of detail. This must of taken a lot of patient to this which I couldn't do.

  48. If I had her talent i would probably draw landscapes or people, because they are some of the most difficult things in this world to draw. Its really amazing what she can do with a pen honestly, she gets everything perfect down to the last detail, the basket ball must have been especially hard to draw.

  51. These are really good! And its in pen?? wow! Tats what's really blowing my mind about these. The basketball would've been very hard because of all f the details and all the little bumps. I wish I could do something like this.

  58. This is really cool. She did a extremely good job. I think doing something like this in class would be a good idea. Although mine probably wouldn't turn out as good as hers have.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Doing something like this in class might be really fun I think. It is really impressive how she did this. She had to put a lot of details in two the basketball and boxing gloves.

    ReplyDelete
  60. These are indeed, very impressive. It is impossible to tell that this is a drawing. Must be very time consuming.
