There were many photographer around Angkor Wat and other ruins, but some painters were there too.
Drawing is great job as same as taking photo, otherwise may be more significant than taking photo.
It took more than one hour for him to finalize, the final output was great masterpiece and quite same as photo.

Great job! I like that you used your medium to capture another. There are many photos of the Angkor temples; I like that you decided to try another angle. It's a fresh and interesting photo.

a unique capture for this place .
your focus at drawing and the hand with blur background present artist skill clearly and make this shot interesting .
Is this place Angkor Wat or Angkor Thom?( Drawing look like statue at Angkor Thom may be )

as a painter I much appreciate this shot as you captured two kinds of art... and an artist's work :)
Very interesting, original photo! And I like the composition.
One hour for a drawing... it's little! It sometimes took me several hours.
P.S. it took one Russian painter 20 years to make a picture... a real masterpiece, though :)

I like this a lot, the focus on his hand & the drawing...I think this was taken in the Bayon temple of Angkor Thom & the origin of the face is controversial...could be Avalokitesvara or King Jayavarman VII. In my opinion, cloning of the out of focus part of dress on the right could have drawn our attention to his main action. Good work!
