I keep zooming in, and the detail keeps coming! It's like something from the Bladerunner movie.

But the most awe inspiring aspect is the artistry in the lines. He's captured the style with such feeling.

And then the most astonishing thing; this modest throw away sentence:

I also did the whole thing with a mouse, no Wacom.

!!!  Impossible!

 @Hokusai Haven't you heard of RSI?

Don't you think we could propose him as the first recipient of the 'Affinity Medal for services to creativity'?

I'm utterly astounded, this is wonderful. How many objects is it?

Ash,

 

Thanks, I'm glad you like it. There are around 68,000 objects, give or take a few hundred.

Michelangelo,

 

Hello and thank you for the compliments! It did take me a long time to complete it. I've been doing vector art for a long time and to be honest with you, I've never had results from any vectorizer that made me say "wow". I didn't try this image with any vectorizer though but I'm guessing that it wouldn't convert well because of the large number of objects.

Excellent! A lot of patience, time, detail, skill and I'm with you completely about the mouse, I rarely use anything else, my mouse and I are good buddies.  Love it to bits. I don't come here often, either, but seeing this has made my visit worthwhile!

Hilary,

 

Hello and thank you for your nice comments. I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one who uses a mouse to draw. I know many serious artists use a pen and tablet but for some reason or another I just never did. I do a lot of my own artwork but even then most of the work that I do is more in the graphic design area rather than the pure artist side so a mouse always made more sense to me. I do draw with actual pen or pencil and paper when I do my own work but once I convert it to a digital format I always use the mouse to work with it. Many people here recommend a pen and tablet so hopefully I will get around to trying it sometime. I love drawing in Designer with the mouse and I can imagine that it is even better drawing freehand with a pen in Designer.

 

Best regards,

Hokusai

I can't say anything that hasn't been said here. I just have to say how impressed I am. This is almost unbelievable!

Hokusai ( I keep visualizing this every time...) , in the beginning, I only drew with a mouse...In the times of Deluxe Paint (and II), Deluxe Paint Animator and Autodesk Animator ( cool piece of software ), it was all about mices... When not even just the keyboard cursor. And even before, a matter of making a grid in paper, draw those tiny squares, and type in the coordinates later (still remember doing that) in code (BASIC or etc). But a tablet does make a huuuge difference. If you need tablets advice at its moment, you could ping me, if wish so.

SrPX,

 

I can see how you would think about that image when you see my posts! I chose my screen name because I'm a huge Hokusai fan. Thanks for the offer of advice on drawing tablets. I'm not ready to make to move away from my mouse just yet. If I change my mind and decide to look into getting one, I'll personal message you first. 

 

Thanks,
Hokusai
