Pencil on paper

I don't really know what to say about this piece. My feelings about it keep changing and the message I take from it seems to vary.

I spent just over 90 hours on it.

Let me know what you think :)

Your work is insanely good!
You're so skilled!!
How on earth do you upload these? They're on paper and board, yes? They must be huge!

I don't understand. How is it possible to scan such large-scale works? What scanner is large enough?

I have it professionally scanned at a printing studio. its a bit expensive but worth it for the potential prints in future.

Oh wow! I didn't know there was such a thing as professional scanning. I will most definitely look into this for future reference.
Thank you so much!

... I'm not sure about the tree... for some reason I both like it, and don't like it. Possibly the "don't like it" thought is because I saw your "The Apple" first, which is an absolutely stunning piece.
But the rocks, they're just amazing. I love photography that shows Zen gardens with rocks stacked in this way, and this captures everything about those.

Bloody amazing work on the stone textures. How big is it and what kind of paper did you use?

Amazing detail on the stones, they look almost photographic ;) Good job and I am not surprised it took 90 hours :D

This is great, Jono! Love the textures and the shadows, and the tree.:clap: Beautiful job. I like the title too. Although I would have called it "Floating Aspirations"=D
