Can't turn back time by shimoda7 Can't turn back time by shimoda7
...no matter how bad we sometimes want to


this one took me longer than i thought it would. especially designing the minute hand. it incorporates the word Aevum which is Latin for Time.
the whole composition is done from scratch, except the shape of the clock surface which is based on a ref. photo.

- graphite on paper
- 14" x 11"
- about 25 hours
- wips on my website

hope you like it


edit: added watermark. see also [link]

I really like your design for the minute hand too, at first I couldn't see the letters but then it suddenly became clear. Awesome job :D
