Pencil VS Camera - Sketching to Improve Reality

Some of us like to take photos, others like to sit down and sketch what they see instead but Ben Heine, Belgian painter, likes to do both, then combine them with spectacular results. He been taking photos and drawing almost since he was 10 years old. The basic concept is to take an existing image, lay a torn piece of paper over it and let the pencil and creativity flow. This crossbreed of photography and sketching isn’t exactly new, yet through an extremely creative mind and an artist alike, it is taken to an entirely new level. Enjoy!
