  1. Wonderful images. The color drawings are beautiful.
    My mind is churning overtime speculating on how he gets these things to line-up so perfectly. There has to be a technique beyond just good drawing skills.

  2. These are really great. The first caption says, ‘Belgian artist Ben Heine blends photography and pencil sketches to create imaginary scenes. He explains: “I find a location, do a drawing, then take a photo to combine with the drawing.”‘, but it seems he must have the photograph first and then lay the paper over it, to get things to line up so well.
