    The Plant: Artwork & Imagery

    - From the Great Jungles to the Vast Plains to the Ethereal Mountains -

    Hi,

    this is sorta my introduction to these forums. My name is Benyamin, I'm from The Netherlands. I used to have a pretty nice collection of the crazy monsters amongst the peaceful leafs. About ten years ago my collection was at its peak, and my special interest for the tropical species led me to have some interesting plants that I took care of with a passion. Circumstances made me stop with the hobby, and now, ten years later, I feel like taking another shot.

    Even though my conscious mind wasn't occupied with thoughts about these beautiful plants in that break, my subconscious mind was; I had dreams of jungles and woods where I was looking for these plants, or just wondering about, and often I found some scattered in my dreamscapes!

    I used to own a camera and take pictures of a lot of stuff; also my carnivorous plants, but unfortunately it broke a long time ago; one of the most common errors for that specific camera that coincidentally wasn't supported by that company - haha. I feel like having my camera fixed to snap a couple of pictures again. What isn't broken is my pencil. I used to draw when I was a bit younger and lately I've picked that up as well. The combination of nature, drawing and photography is a magical thing to me.

    So, in this thread I will share some artwork with you guys, for now just drawings. In the future photographs of my collection and set-ups as well. I am thinking about selling/trading some of this stuff in the future if people are actually interested (not offering right now). Otherwise, no worries, it's fun to me and I can just make some drawings for family, friends and/or my room.

    Feel free to post pictures of your favorite plant(s) you want to see a sketch off!

    * In May I'm going to build a highland terrarium in my room, I have some cool ideas for a set up and I'm looking forward to show ya'll and create artwork with it as well!

    Have a great day, one love

    (note: I work with photoshop as well to give cool effects to my sketches)

    Currently taking these photos with the camera on my phone, soon with a good camera

    25-4-2016 - This will by my lowland area. There is a boiler in that room which keeps the temperature up in the winter. Just gotta figure out proper humidity/additional lighting in the winter, and all the good stuff. For now this is my main growing area so I'm mixing it up. The temperatures of spring allow for that.

    * Added an image of a Tepui (it's a mixture of my sketching and photoshopping)!

    If you're like most people on here, myself included, it won't be too long until it's "out of hand."

    That last Drosera is tokaiensis, definitely not intermedia. Very interesting art style, it's not something I've seen before.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Hey, I looked it up and you're absolutely right, it's not an intermedia. I guess my knowledge is a bit rusty. It definitely look like a tokaiensis, are you 100% positive it is? Then I'll tag it as such. Thanks
