So nice — a domestic dinosaur…
…who also happens to love Fabuland animals! ;-)
After I tweeted and dribbbled, I decided also to blog about a simple drawing experiment of mine. Here it is — the Flying Cloud clipper ship:
Flying Cloud (my drawing with a Rotring 0.35 mm pencil, an eraser and a simple ruler).
I used as reference the famous painting by Antonio Jacobsen:
Antonio Jacobsen: Flying Cloud, 1913 (the painting is in the Public Domain).
It all started with a couple of lines on the paper… (I know that my drawing has many flaws but making it was a lot of fun!:-)
In the next GIF file I tried to super-impose the two drawings:
The original painting and my drawing.
I love ships, and especially sailing ships.
I think that the clipper ship is the most perfect ship ever invented by man. Of course, with the coming of the steam engine, clippers started to disappear, but even today, they are still as perfect and beautiful! :-)
