Crystal Splinters City Skies by ~selfhaircuts01 This is truly and incredible beautiful artwork! Absolutely brilliant and unbelievably amazing! It is a great example what you can create a world simply by using the stencils! It is amazing how ~selfhaircuts01 use the lighting to create such interesting mood! Fantastic!

I dont really get it. I can understand it is a shitload of work, and I like the scenery a lot. But this sencil was made from a photo right? Why the fuck do so much work for the result to look just like the photo? Is it just the fun of cutting?

gr. a stencil noob

this is the best thing i have seen on deviant art. do you do stencil design full time or do you have another job aswell. i find it hard to find time to do small low detail stencil. this is beautiful.
