. It's been months, I haven't posted anything because of my sick routine. I started this sculpture last Sunday. But, got to do some work in between and left it uncompleted. xD So, today got time to give it execution. And I am trying to take my Sculpting skills to extreme. So, trying something new everytime. . #sculpture #art #pencil #tea #dawn_dot_com #mangobaaz #pinterest #instagram #flashh_pakistan #arts_promote #islamicrepublicofpakistan #leadpencil #dawninfluencer #gettyimages #divamagazinepakistan #gtmagazine #miniature #travel #storiesofpakistan #artsculpture #dailpakistan #carving #peopleofpakistan #creative #etribune #locallylahore #talentagent #beautifulpakistan #macroart #cup

. So, by the grace of Allah almighty, after extreme wait of 8 months, I have been officially declared as Guiness World Record Holder by Guiness World Record Officials. I have broken the world record of 58 links made by some INDIAN guy and my Record of 75 links has been officially approved. It is all because of Allah's blessing, who made me able to make my people/country proud! I had eyes on this title since 2014, when Youth Festival was happening in Punjab, and I wanted to be a part of Biggest flag painting. But, at that time, I was working as a labor in a shoe factory, and my supervisor didn't give me leave to go for that event! But, Today, I am Individually World Record Holder. Alhamdulillah! 🙂 Thanks to all of my friends and followers who prayed for me and made me reach here. Special thanx to Colonel Aslam sahab, DA art institute, Mangobaz, Ary News, Mag the Weekly and everyone who helped me to make my evidences strong for the Guiness World Record approval. It was hell of a job to make my record approved. I did some mistakes in application's process but my record manager was so cooperative and he guided me in right ways and made me execute it. ALHAMDULILLAH.  Swipe left to see its journey. Link of official record is in Bio. #sculpture #art #pencil #pakistan #dawn_dot_com #vscopk #pinterest #instagram #flashh_pakistan #arts_promote #islamicrepublicofpakistan #leadpencil #officiallyamazing #gettyimages #divamagazinepakistan #gtmagazine #miniature #travel #storiesofpakistan #artsculpture #dailpakistan #carving #peopleofpakistan #creative #etribune #worldrecord #talentagent #beautifulpakistan #macroart #guinessworldrecord

While speaking to MangoBaaz about this, here’s what Ahsan shared:

”It is not an easy process at all. It takes about 6 months. You have to submit an application. Once your application is approved, they ask for strong evidence, consisting of the pictures or videos you have made during the entire process.”

”Being unaware of the application process, I made a number of mistakes. But my record manager helped me through it. On the second go, I was able to upload everything successfully.”

On talking about beating the world record of an Indian, Ahsan stated,

”I originally broke the previously-held record of 50 links of lead. But during my application process, an Indian emerged with the world record of 58 links. Instead of getting dismayed, I worked and was able to break the record with a whopping 75 links.”

. So, I made this Minare Pakistan overnight. 😅 Yesterday night, wasn't feeling well, when I got back home from office at 10 p.m. I thought to complete my uncompleted sculpture which is still incomplete xD. And started working on this one. Started it at 11 p.m. and completed it at 5 a.m. Offered my fajar prayer and slept at 6 a.m. And now em in office again, and yawning xD . #sculpture #art #pencil #pakistan #dawn_dot_com #vscopk #pinterest #instagram #flashh_pakistan #arts_promote #islamicrepublicofpakistan #leadpencil #minarepakistan #gettyimages #divamagazinepakistan #gtmagazine #miniature #travel #storiesofpakistan #artsculpture #dailpakistan #carving #peopleofpakistan #creative #etribune #locallylahore #talentagent #beautifulpakistan #macroart #monument
