it is not an opinion, and though i know the application of this topic in this particular subject is slightly off, i merely wish to point out that the people that have tried to apply it are not completely wrong though need to expand their knowledge slightly more about it
I know you only said he was a savant, but savants are ( with literally a couple of exceptions ) autistic.
anyway sorry ;-)
Besides, he stuck his fingers in multiple colors and by some twist of fate only one color appears.
And he got the name wrong. Any prodigy would know who he was painting.
Understatement of the century.
Back on the subject though, that kid is amazing. If its real, then I really think that he`s going to be a artistic genius when he`s older. Love the pointillism style too.
Pretty good,better than half the kids in my studio classes and I`m in college. xD
Sure, I don`t see why it wouldn`t be, advertisements don`t have to be fake.
Even if it WASN`T real, my point still stands, people act like amazing things can never happen because they`re not able to do them, and it is OH so annoying.
wish I had a kid like him,
First off, get a f*cking life, stop trolling the boards looking for people who actually go outside once in a while, and realize there could be more to life, and astounding things actually do happen.
Remember the autistic man who could draw that entire city 99.9% accurate after just one helicopter ride? If that isn`t mind blowing, I don`t know what is.
I don`t understand what your trying to prove, other than your a huge prick and no one likes you. The 3 year old or the dad isn`t seeing what you say, so it`d probably be a good idea for you to stop talking.. because you saying:
"Daft. Idiots. Blind. I hate you all, you gullible fools."
Doesn`t give us anything to do but laugh at you and your sad attempt to do.. whatever your trying to do.
Oh noez guys, I`m DAFT.
There always has to be some d*ck who is jealous so they have to deem it as fake. Seriously, do you guys ever leave your house and consider there MIGHT be more amazing things out there than your nightly internet porno runs through the internet? Just because you can`t do something, does not mean it`s fake, it means your a prick.
Do us all a favor, shut the hell up, and die.
Oh, and Donthaveone"I can`t believe you people actually think this is real, you guys can`t be that stupid/gullable."
You spelled gullible wrong, I guess WE`RE the stupd ones eh?
I hate these so-called "viral videos".
If anybody else wants to make a comment about autism, read my other comment on page 4.
If you say something stupid I will come down on you like a ton of bricks.
Get a life and dont be jealous.. Maybe the paper is glossy because it is wet???? Or maybe his dad used that protective acrillic spray coating?
::poo poo poo::
We`ve been talking about this as a HOAX the entire time. Yes, I know what a savant is. A savant is an autistic child, however, and this kid had normal speech patterns, which rule out that.
We`ve all gone over the evidence that says it`s fake fake fake. If you weren`t so lazy to READ the other comments, then you would know that.
And I want to point out AGAIN that if the boy said he was gonna paint Michelangelo, then he would have. Young kids are too picky to mix names up like that. He wouldn`t have painted Leonardo and called him Michelangelo.
ONLY IGNORANT FATHERS WOULD DO THAT. "Hmmm, nobody would notice anyway. Michelangelo, Leonardo, same thing."
It took me three years to get where this kid is; of course now I`m already past this skill level, but with a lot of practise, and I`m 14.
Daft. Idiots. Blind. I hate you all, you gullible fools.
You dont even see the kid actually paint and the camera always move and focus only on the hands.
The trick: The father did all the hard work of outlining the form of the painting and the kid just paint inside the lines. The father probably gave instruction to the kid ( Unless he used the arm of the kid as a paintbrush... is it really the kid arm or a fake? )
Some retouch when the kid is done and voila.
Good editing though, I`ll give them that.
i were laughing the whole time, cause i saw how fake it was, then i read the comments, and people are beliving it...seriously gullible
there is no way in hell that a child at 3 years of age could understand the concept of shading.
poor kid will get insulted because his damn dad faked him
Just stating the obvious...
Nah thats just mean...But seriously, wtf??? It looks kinda fake...Im not so sure that a kid would understand how to shade like that?? Im not saying its false..but hmm im not sure...
LEONARDO IS A FAMOUS ARTIST TOO DUMBASSES."Michelangelo is an artist, just like this kid! That`s why he likes him! Teehee! 8P"
Any of you ever hear of Leonardo Davinci? HM?
If any of you ACTUALLY LIKED the Ninja Turtles, you would know that they`re all named after famous artists. Yes, even Rafael.
I`m done being a bitch if you`re done being idiots.
Do you realize that the kid sticks ALL 5 fingers into the paint and kind of dabs them on when his full body is in view, but when only the hand is visible, he uses one finger?Do you realize that it doesn`t show a single inch above his hand to his wrist? That`s because it`s being held.Do any of you realize that a three year old hasn`t developed the perception needed in order to utilize shading when drawing? Nevermind even making the exact shapes with still-life references. A three-year old is barely in the stage where he can make a triangle, nevermind a fcking Leonardo.
THIS IS ALL A PROMO FOR THE NINJA TURTLES.
Also, since the kid said he was gonna draw Michelangelo, he WOULD`VE drawn Michelangelo. Kids are picky about that stuff. Clearly, the dad drew Leonardo, being the ignorant dick he is, because he thought it was Michelangelo. You don`t think this explains everything?
STOP PRAISING LIES.kthnx
That`s really good!!
But yeah. I think it`s fake too. ><
but he needs a haircut:-?
You never see the kid and the arm at the same time. Its a fake baby arm.
THIS IS RETARDED.
sorry guys, look for yourselves
I`m afraid it looks like they`ve spliced in some footage of a kid doing some finger painting with some footage of an arm ( an adult arm ) doing the real stuff. But I would be happy to be proved wrong.
Incidentally, from some of the comments I`ve seen here, some of you think that all Autists have some sort of gift. That`s not true at all, it`s just that that`s the only place you find those things.
Ok, my bad. Sorry for that BUT why O why can`t child that age be that good?? There are a lot of miracles in this world. A lot of people here LOVE the word Photoshop or Fake or whatever they want to say. There are plenty of people and children out in this magnificent world that CAN do this sort of thing and continue to be amazing while they are at it. So the child a small miracle and I thought that post was dumb. NOT the person was dumb, that was my fault.
Glad someone mentioned it, that was the first thing I noticed (as I know nothing about painting, but some about TMNT.)
holding ... back ... urge ... to ... be mean ..... ...........aaaaahhhhHHHHHH!!!That comment was dumb and so are you! You saw it with your eyes! Are you blind???
I guess that paint might not bleed as much as a normal paint, however I still doubt that he was able to do the entire thing by hand.
The paper used in the final scene reflected the light in the rest of the room. This means that it is coated with a plastic like substance on the surface. This type of plastic however is hydrophobic meaning it does not adhear to water based paints. Given the distenct increase in shading during the last shot reltive to the other scences I beleve his father just printed that on a printer.
Yeah it`s true but I am confused. I don`t think that was water based paint. It seems like non-toxic pastel paint or what ever you want to call it. This Stuff
Other then that, that is amazing.
I`ve got to say it`s an overextended commercial if anything. Children develop things we think of as natural over time. For instance, object permanence isn`t an intrinsic idea, that`s why babies are often enthralled by "peekaboo". Is it possible for that child to have developed the necessary faculties to do this? Sure, but it ain`t likely.
I can`t paint in the lines.... WITH A BRUSH>!
I noticed that...
To be honest, it strikes me as fake and that poor kid is being fooled into thinking he is a genius. Oh the repercussions!
Bloody genius it is then!
the thing about talented autistic kids theyre called savants and we need more of these. socializing kids makes them like every other typical retard we need more savants!
(Just kidding. Awesome painting, I can`t do that. :))
No offence to the kid, that was awesome. As soon as he moves onto better subjects, I want one.
Michelangelo is my favorite too. =3
hahajkidunno LOL @ pudleofcrud
i guess great minds think alike
He even knew how to use values and contrast o.oamazing!
Makes me feel bad for my parents, I can`t do diddly.
Michelangelo the artist or the ninja turtle? I think he could end up being either one, or both.
curious to see what he can to at age 20
