Nutcracker's dash by AldemButcher Nutcracker's dash by AldemButcher
This is one of my best drawings. This birch has formations like eyes and mouth. So on the drawing, this is anthropomorphic undead tree trunk. It's like the dash of the modern busy life.
As said :iconbutterflyfish: , "the drawing seems to speak for itself. I can see a man in the woods who's stuck to the tree and tries to break out, but he can't. Is it just the modern busy life that is represented by the broken tree or is it the destroyed nature that is pointed out in the drawing, too? The mankind destroys nature and therefore itself. Fantastic drawing!"

In russian: на данный момент, это, наверное, мой лучший рисунок карандашом. Нарисовал я его на цветной бумаге, эскиз сделал еще в лесу с натуры. Я замерз тогда и хотел уходить, но увидел поваленный ствол березы, который представился мне антропоморфным. Я понимал, что встретить в лесу такое дерево - большая редкость, поэтому сделал там эскиз и фотоснимок, по которому и рисовал рисунок. С другой фотографии я добавил сюда черного жука. В какой-то степени этот мрачный щелкунчик - жизнь, сжимающая тисками современного человека.

My god, the intricate detail is stunning... Well deserved DD.

What was this done in, if you don't mind revealing? It looks like it was on toned paper, but is the rest just pencil?

it's done on thin yellowish paper, mostly koh-i-noor pencils. Maybe some faber-castell pencils too. The paper allowed to easily do thin lines and details.
