All of your drawings are beautiful, and they're all so realistic!

Thank you. These are actually mostly woodburnings. Though I do have a few colour pencil pieces as well. But people often mistake them for drawings and I find that very gratifying. Thanks again for your kind compliments on my artwork. :)

Thank you Mohamd. I have taught it in the past and you can find both online tutorials, as well as books, and written lessons on woodburning sites. I have a few in depth tutorials on woodburner.com and pyrography online.

Wood burning!? At first I thought photo, them maybe drawing... But this really is great. What was the wood you used? and how hot was the 'pen'?
Reply
:iconerikbrush:
ErikBrush Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2013
The wood is Birch. I generally use Norwegian Birch when available. Swedish or Scandinavian birch tends to be a tad lighter then other variants. But any birch is my optimal wood of choice. I also use basswood from time to time or other light conifers. In a pinch I will use pine but only if it is kiln dried. Air dried pine retains sap and when the burner is applied to such wood the sap heats up and bleeds out to form resin and pitch which smudges and messes up the burn as well as gumming up the point of the burner. The pen is a versa-tool by Walnut Hollow and average burn temperature is 950F.

This is gorgeous. I saw it and thought it was a drawing. When I saw it was wood worked, I had to show my son who loves working with wood. He thought it was a drawing as well. His explosion of surprise caught everyone's attention. I love the detail.

I get that quite a bit. If it was my pencil art it would be far more detailed than it is. Woodburning is a bit more challenging. But it's a media form that I really enjoy working in. It's also nice to hear people mistaking it for pencil art. Thank you for the feedback on this piece. :)

Wow, this is beautiful!
I think not enough people try woodburning, my Dad made a wooden chest that was insulated (use it a beer cooler;) ) and woodburned a fishing scene into it. I've always loved that piece! This one is beautifully done and reminds me of that chest he made, good times.. What a wonderful piece, thank you for sharing it!

Thank you very much. It's a really enjoyable media form and I think that it's a wonderful way to do what your father did. Decorating 3-D objects, furniture, etc. I'm glad that you enjoyed this. Thank you for your feedback. Cheers!

Angie I have a reputation in the Pyrographic community as one of the more accomplished artists. I always find that both kind and amusing as well because there are so many fabulously talented pyrographers out there who's work I admire and enjoy. I see a LOT of the work that they do and while I like many of these artists as people and I am always supportive of their work and what they are doing, I am always delighted to see other work of those more unique artists who bring that extra something to the table. You are one of the more outstanding pyrographic talents that I have seen. It is only fitting that you are given the respect and appreciation that I see as fitting for such a rich body of fine art work.

I LOVE PHOTO-REALISM! Any artist who has the talent to pull it off well has my deepest respect.

Thank you very much for your kind feedback on my artwork. :) Cheers!
