This is a pyrograph burned by hand into a poplar panel. 38x60x1 cm 2013
truly impressive work !!!!
Congratulations on a well deserved DD. I love the colour and texture of this masterpiece which appears to be an ancient relic ... amazing!
Just when I was starting to feel a bit of confidence in my artistic ability.... #I'mNotWorthy
Seriously though, this is absolutely amazing.
Gorgeous! When I saw the title I thought it was a photo taken from a Roman artifact at a museum.
Wait...that's not 3D? Holy...that's scary good!
That...that is astounding! It looks like it could be carved onto the side of a Greek temple!
Oh, wow, amazing work!!
It looks so 3D it's scary! Incredible work! I've never seen pyrography work like this..
This is so beautiful! Congrats on the DD!
God that's beautiful....
Oh my goodness, that's astounding! It looks just like a carving.
Simply astounding in its beauty, my friend
Well done with the DD!
Wow. I totally thought this was carved. If you burn the wood to deepen the color, how do you bring out the highlights?
Absolutely amazing piece!
Amazing and stunning detail! Love the pose/position.
awesome piece!! well done getting the dd!
Spectacular example of what pyrography can be... the best I have seen yet... Congrats on the well deserved DD!
this is a drawing of a sculpture of a dying warrior from the eastern pediment of the temple of aphaia in greece...
thanx, zakon! i really had no idea where the original statue was resting. i had a photo taken of this (copy) base-relief hanging on a wall in an art gallery a few years back. so just to make it clear to you: this is not a drawing, this is a pyrograph (Pyrography - pyrographer) just like in Photography - photograph - photographer. Basically it's the good old wood-burning, but just done... differently. different tools, different technique, different approach. the image was burned into the wood by hand, using soldering iron type tools. unfortunately, still no PYROGRAPHY ART SECTION in Deviantart... that's why you see it in the woodworking - craft section ))
the only reason I pointed out that there IS an actual statue of a dying soldier as pyrographed by yourself is because I'm amazed by how little people know about art... they see something resembling, or in this case depicting, an actual piece of classic greek sculpture and they say "omg this looks like it came of a greek temple"! hello! it DID come of a greek temple haha
what also amazes me is how professional artists know so little about art... I see cartoons, video games and whatnot set in ancient greece or rome and naturally they show period architecture and sculpture sorta how we see it today... they never show how greek and roman architecture and sculpture was in fact painted in quite vivid colors... you could say it was quite kitschy hahaha
people should study art history more... especially those who fancy calling themselves artists...
oh and about pyrography... well you technically DID draw the picture in the wood hehehe... only you didn't use a pen or a pencil but a tool suited to your art technique... no offense meant to your art, of course! it takes a hell of a lot of skill to do what you do!
I study etching and printmaking and I use all sorts of methods of drawing the motif into different kinds plates for printing... but when people see the print, they usually think it's a drawing so I have to explain to them how it's made... well, I used to explain, now I just let it go if they show complete lack of knowledge in art haha
^--- what this guy said. not to take away from how good it is. but give the source yo
Whoa....it looks 3D!
Now THAT'S impressive. A truly rare piece of excellent art.
This looks good, but never heard of a Pyrograph before how does it work??
- Congrats on the DD, stunning work!
Have a nice day!
Congratulations on the DD!
That is beautiful!
I would love to see the workflow! However you do it, you do it very well.
I thought it was a carving at first. sigh.
Not gonna lie, I think burning this image into a piece of wood is just as impressive.
The depth on this is pretty darn impressive.
