The work is stunning Armin! Sorry I haven't been around for a long time, but life is throwing me curves lately. I am super busy taking care of my elderly father. He needs me so much. The sad thing is that I haven't found the time to draw in so long. But looking at your art always makes the artist come out from under my skin. hehe

Love always,
Moni

Moni sorry to hear of your situation, i went through it myself the last few years and it was agonizing for my dad and somewhat for me, drawing once again saved my spirit and mind. Good luck with all of that

A comment from me probably won't mean a thing to you, but you are totally out of this world; I think it will be great if you can share with aspiring artists tips, techniques, tutorial or anything coming from you. How about a book? anything! you are living legend...insane just insane!!

I'm very obsessive and it is an addiction, i know when this is done and the first day of not drawing will drive me nuts and ill have to start a new one that day, its my nature, good bad or indifferent. Ive mentioned i have OCD i take medication for it, this is an offshoot of it

thanks

I like your work, but I do have a question though. If the photograph is better in terms of quality, then wouldn't there be showing more contrast and noises on the textures of the tree?

nimra Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
i guess i don't follow you question? The photography is a close to what the real drawing looks like as possible, that's why i have such an expensive camera and lenses and i still have to adjust the tonality and noise in PS to look like the work. also the white is to bright on my monitor here at work and looks perfect on my monitor at home, and that you cant do anything about. hope that helps

Armin, my most dedicated friend. You know that I have been following in my style many things you have shown but this is definitely a project I will abstain from. This is not only complex, intrigueing, challenging ...... but scary in its complexity as well. Very well done my plf (pissed looking friend).

Wow, the working trance must be heavy. To make work like this, which is such a slow process, must really help your concentration when doing encaustics, which is such a quick thing, getting brush to surface before the wax has cooled. Great work.

You look a lot different than I remember. Great pic. I don't know if I'd ever have the patience to work on something this size. I listed you as one of my influences at my art show at the local museum.
I've been a fan of your work since I was on the drawing forum at Artpapa years ago.
