…Oh…my…God…

That is seriously the most amazing thing ever.
At first glance, and even still, I don't believe you, just because how amazing it looks.
I mean, I believe you, but it's just so photo-realistic.

Bloody hell these are good. He has to be using photos as reference though because the detail is so amazing. The hair is so realistic. It's very hard to distinct these picture from actual black and white photographs except that the skin on the people seem a bit oily.

I wonder how long each “photo” takes.
Those were my two cents.

I've been working on some pencil drawings myself.

Here's one I made of my newborn son:


Billy vs. Tree – The epic struggle of boy versus tree.
Sonic Colores – It looks like it's going to be a good game because I love how the way it makes me grow.

Looks like a bottecap theif to me humorman. I would watch that little bastard like a HAWK if I were you. :gem:

Yeah, they're great pics! :)
People get really adept at recreating photos. There's this Chinese guy in the outdoor markets here who sells stuff like that. Mostly it's celeb pics.

I can understand that, though. After a certain level of photo-realism, you can't help but wonder (especially from a publisher's perspective), why not just use a photograph? I can't think of any publishers that would publish these types of images (apart from, say, art magazines and the like) if they could publish the photographs that were used as reference for substantially less time and money.

That's true. pics in this style aren't much use to modern publishers.

BUT these sort of pics could ern the artist a decent amount of money if they sold the originals :)
That's where the value is with these sorts of pics. The subject and style is extremely accessible so hey wouldn't find themselves short of buyers. You don't even need to show this stuff in a gallery setting to get the right customers. -You just have to know your market really and this has a different one to the publishing scene.
-As Inky says.

I can't imagine seeing these in galleries. Yeah they're good, but most galleries are stuck on modernist and more trendy/conceptual styles of high art. This guy would do quite well at art fairs though.

The only part that tips me is the texture in the skin. Especially on that last one, the pencil shows through a bit. But anything with humans is incredibly hard to reproduce realistically because it's about one of the only subjects we know and see every day.

It's the background details that make it obvious to me ^_^
In the animal pics that's not a problem because the BG was a carfully set up gradient in the ref photo, so that's not so hard to reproduce. In the human pics the BG is more varied and the artist didn't put in the same amount of effort… :(
Still it's excellent work :)

-lba, you know there are galleries for everything man.And I mean everything.

I know there's a gallery for everything out there. But it can be incredibly hard to find them sometimes. I have a heck of time finding places that will accept my work because it's “graffiti” styled, and graffiti and street art aren't “legitimate” styles of work in a lot of places just yet. So with certain things it's easier to find alternate places to sell your work and so I would just connect something like this to art fairs or other places rather than a gallery. That's all I really meant by it.

Photo-realism has been an artistic movement for 20 years now? I remember the works I saw one Philadelphia museum back in the 1980s. The sculptures with goose pimples visible on the model's skin (it was a nude and man did she look cold and miserable)

I used to do similar photographic pencil portraits, but it takes forever and lots of practice. I didn't keep up with it and since then my pencil style has gotten a lot “looser” and impressionist.

I don't consider any abstract portraiture art. It's scribble as done by a six year old in Kindergarten Art class and should be tacked up on a school bulletin board or a parent's refridgerator not hung in an art gallery.
