Right to the point

Artist Salavat Fidai has taken carving sculptures to an all new level, a miniature level at that.  He carves the graphite from a pencil into incredible works of art.  So stop for a moment and look at your pencil, if your holding a wooden pencil, and think about how small of a surface that is.

 Now think about sharpening that pencil.  How often does that break?  How hard do you struggle to just get a pencil tip so that you can use it.

Its WALLE


Okay, after looking at all of these images, what do you think of Salavat's style?
Is this something that you would like to try, or do you think you would get too frustrated?  What image would you like to see carved into the tip of a pencil?  Do you think there is a subject matter that he couldn't do?

  1. I would not like to try this nor would I have the time or patience to do such a thing. Imagine being almost done carving the pencil, but then accidentally break it. Salavat's style is amazing, but I would not take up the challenge.

  2. I would love to try this. I probably wouldn't have the art talent to pull this off, but I think it would be fun to at least try. Just think of all the relieve when you finish it and it looks amazing.

  3. It is very cool but, I would never try this i don't of the steady hand nor the patience to do this. Just one of those pencils probably took her a few months to do. So i would not do this.

  5. It is very cool! I just don't think I have the patients or time to do this. If I messed up I would want to just throw the pencil or something.

  6. Wow this is stupendous! I could do this with my eyes closed and my hands behind my back though. Just give me a pencil and call me Piccasso.

  9. This amazes me. I don't think I could ever be able to do this however, I would like to try it. After the first few attempts of me not being able to do it, I would probably throw the pencil away.

  10. This is amazing. It looks so unreal. I can barely sharpen my pencil the normal way, so this probably wouldn't be something for me to try.

  11. These look so cool, I would love to TRY and do this. If I tried this I think I might mess up and get mad at the pencils. I think it would be cool to try and do the statue of liberty.

  13. I absolutely love this kind of art. It is so amazing how they can make something like this and put so much detail into it. I don't know how they could have the time and patients to do this, but whoever does is absolutely amazing.

  14. I like these a lot. They wouldn't be good to use for writing, but they're still cool. It would be difficult to get all the details.

  15. These are crazy. I would really like to know how to make this type of art. It looks really cool and I would like to be taught this.

  16. This is really cool. It has to be very hard to do something like this and has to take a lot of time.

  17. I bet the tools he is using are even tinier than the pencil. The Wall-E one was probably harder than the skull. that'd be funny if he writes with them after he took a picture of them.

  18. I have trouble sharpening a pencil to write with, much less carving Wall-E into the lead. I would never want to attempt this method, because I would never be able to do it. I would snap it, and I have quite shaky hands.

  19. I am convinced that the artist in question, Salavat Fidai, is a robot. How could a human possess have the skill to make such fine, intricate details. The Wall-E one is pretty cool though.

  20. This is really cool I think it took time and effort to make the Wall-E. I would want to try this and make a Eiffel Tower.

  22. The talent that you would have to have to do this is above and beyond. This would be something that would be awesome to do, but almost like an impossible task.

  23. I would never have the patients to do this. It looks very difficult and time comsuming. If you make one wrong move you could break the whole thing. If you want to do this go ahead but i wouldn't put my time into it.

  24. I have no idea what these are. It looks kind of difficult to understand what these are. but i like them i guess.

  25. I really like the Wall-E one. these are so creative too! i don't think I would've ever thought to design my pencil like this. I'd probably get really frustrated trying to carve these.

  26. this art is unique and kind of nice. I think there was A LOT of work put in but it seems worth it in the end. the artist probably has a great imagination and steady hand

  27. I've seen art like this before. You would have to have a lot of patience and time to do this type of art. I can't imagine the times that I would mess up doing this. If I were more talented with art, I would definitely give this a try.

  28. It is so cool how you did the black.I would mess up if i try doing this.

  29. I would hate to try this. I honestly think that I would start out and it just gets worse and worse causing me to stop. It would be a time-consuming project.

  30. Dang that takes some true talent to be able to get even a little bit of detail out of something you are making. I think it would take tons of time just to do one.

  31. these are dumb. i dint really like them that muc. i woulnt do this for a project.

  32. I tried to carve my pencil before actually but I could never do it because it always breaks. I admire his patience.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I would be way too impatient to do this. I don't know how he made detail this small. He must have a very steady hand. I am envious.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I really like how much detail he put into these. I would like to try it. It wouldn't turn out very good, but i'd still like to try it.

  35. I can't even comprehend how this is possible. they must be using giant pencils because this just doesnt even seem possible to me with a number 2 pecil.

    ReplyDelete
  36. if you can make your art work look like this on that small of a thing you can make art on just about anything and make it look good

    ReplyDelete
  37. These are amazing. I could never carve an image into the tip of a pencil and have it look right.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I would get so frustrated with this. I'm sure the lead breaks sometimes and then you'd have to start all over.
