Light Bulb still life by skrob Light Bulb still life by skrob
finished work.

i really like how realistic this came out.the picture is off brightness but i cant wait to get a real decent picture from school.beside this, i really like this piece and I still can't understand how it was quickly done compare drawing from photo reference which takes like 40 hours for getting almost the same result of realism than this which took me about 30 hours and probably have more realistic value to it.

ill be definitely doing more of those.

tools: pencil h6 to b8,blending brushes,q-tips, tuff stuff stick eraser,14x20 fabriano hotpress smooth watercolor paper and my hand;)

when you draw from life, your looking at the details that your feelings are attracted to and those detail reflects the feelings if your heart is filled with kindness, then your mind will attract those kindness details.its like the law of attraction.what you feel comes back to your life.basically the energy of life gives you back what you feel.I could have drawn a completely different light bulb but my attraction made me draw what i wanted to see because of my ways of life.the details of this drawing defines how I am in real life because of who i am.there were so many details from the real object and no way i could have drawn everything from what i've seen but I accidentally chose those details that made since in some way but that way was the reflection of this energy of my own action in life.Its like reflecting your life and the actions you've created in you entire life time and everything judged itself by the law of is similar to a photographic image but no way a camera could create this image because a camera is only a machine without true energy of life and has no heart to create a law of attraction what so ever and there for it gathers all information bad and good because its not human or is not spiritually created like we are.that's what i think makes the differences of truth and false energy of life.

"Today I decided to look up my deviantart page and i was wondering how come i've got so many comments all of the sudden and the weird thing is that, I was talking to my friend about daily deviantion for artworks and now I've got a Daily Deviantion for this work.Thats awesome!I never thought I would get one on this light bulb because i didn't spend has much time on it compare stuff I usually drawn from pictures but I do like this piece more than my "Wine Glass with water"because of the realistic value.By saying that, this light bulb is my favorite piece that i I've done.The wine glass doesn't even come close compare my this art piece for realistic values.I do thanks every single comments for this work and I truly appreciate every single one of them. Its like Christmas day!. What a surprise!every comments made my day.I read every comments with great meaningful appreciation."

a special thanks for my teacher Fabrizio Santori to give me a reflection assignment and support and the students ofcourse.

My sincere thanks and appreciation for deshrubber for this wonderful given Daily Deviation.

It looks so real, just like a black & white photo! Truly masterful. And that's a compliment I reserve only for the best. :squee:
