    Link: Leonardo di Vinci Sucked Compared to This Artist - OK, maybe Dru Blair isn`t as great as di Vinci and the Mona Lisa, but this guy creates an incredibly lifelike portrait.

    He didn`t make up a person, he worked off of a photograph. Additionally, there are new technoligies, tools, and techniques available today that Da Vinci did not have access to. It`s impressive, but it`s no Da Vinci.

    Seems like repost...either way, old and seen before. Also, this is not art. Da Vinci created art, where the final product was something amazing. This on the other, the final product is the same as taking a picture with a camera, being the making of it is amazing. I guess its cool, but I would like to admire the painting more than the painter

    @WHOISIT

    The progression captures look contrived, You can see the follicles in the skin, the step by step looks like a pencil and eraser used on a photo. I mean, if it`s not fake then why is there fringing (an artifact from photography) along the edges of the earrings?

    I don`t know. I couldn`t say for sure unless I was standing with him when he made it (or photographed it) but if you put a gun to my head I would have to say fake.

    it`s real, ita a form of `hyper-real art` used through a process of `air brushing` fine amounts of colour onto the surface of a canvas through a stencil. Its amazing but to those of you stating its and painting, it is not. It would be close t impossible to recreate that image on such a scale of realism had it been painted in the traditional sense with a paintbrush.

    haha, it`s funny to me how you can even compare Leonardo da Vinci to this schmuck.

    Don`t get me wrong here, but this guy can do photorealism, wooooot! How about I just take a good picture?

    Oh yeah thats way too easy.

    This guy is good, yeah that`s true. Is he better than da vinci? no. In fact, f*ck no.

    Leornardo da Vinci is not great because of his paintings, he`s great because of the fact that he was a genius.

    He was an inventor 100`s of years ahead of his time, and an innovator too. All I ask is that for the respect of art, don`t compare this guy to one of the greatest minds that has ever walked this earth. :-)

    It looks to me in the stages that he took a photograph and worked backwards.. there was a post of this a while back of the movie of them doing it. But there was a large part missing. I`m not saying they aren`t great artists, it was a great pic. But it went from `person-created-on-photoshop` to `realistic-life-like-image-with pores-and-folicles` with him jsut doing touch ups. Not prepared to believe it til I see a full video.

    1) It is real.
    2) It is a repost on IAB.
    3) It`s also on Digg.

    4) I`ve lost all respect for Snopes. Have you seen the debate forum? 2 pages of "Why does it have some elements of a photograph? Like the halo around the ear?".

    It was painted from a photo. He says it was painted from a photo. He mentions the make of frigging camera.

    Glad to see the experts are on the case. Jeez.

    He used a photo for reference, so basically he is a human photo copy machine. So whats the point? That he has no imagination and only technique. What a waste of time. Try to create something instead of emulating it.

    And for the Davinci portion of the debate.

    In favour of Da Vinci:
    1) Da vinci didn`t have an airbrush.
    2) Da vinci didn`t have a digital photo to work from.
    3) Da vinci was an inventor too.

    Against:
    1) This is probably better than what Da vinci could have done with an Airbrush.
    2) Da vinci didn`t dedicate his career to Airbrushing techniques in photorealism.

    It`s cool... but what`s the point? There`s no creativity at all... it`s no different than what professional air-brushers do to photos of models and celebrities. Still pretty cool, though, and I admire his dedication.

    And Wango: He DOES create things too.

    While we`re handing out orders for things people should be doing. "Create don`t emulate". Try reading the frigging link before commenting on it.

    In particular the points where he talks about:
    "Technical exercise" "The point of photo realism is..." "My other works include..." "Things that can`t be done with a camera..." "The room for art in photo-realism..." Etc.

    It takes two goddamn minutes to read.

    I know I come off as high and mighty, but drat it irritates me when people are that willfully ignorant. I`m not asking you to do months of research. I`m just asking that people read the thing the frigging talking about.

    Ugh.

    If you`re an artist and you`ve ever picked up an airbrush, you know how easy it is to make photo realistic work. That`s why you don`t see it in art galleries. Anybody can do it. Dru Blair is the extreem end of the spectrum as his work is absolutely perfect, but then spend 50 hours on a painting and tell me you couldn`t do the same. DaVinci applied home made paint, with home made brushes to buildings with imperfect surfaces. He was a genious. Dru Blair is o.k. by comparison. Doubt he could do what the maestro did.

    I went to a public art highschool, and they brought in as a guest artist a photorealist painter once and his stuff was amazing this guy`s is kinda ... boring. Da Vinci was on the cutting edge of art and technology for his time period however many artists are currently at his level these days, we are advancing on his advances (as well as getting into throwing paint on a canvas and calling it art which is just ridiculous if you ask me) He is a legend because of the advances he made not only in art but also because of his ingenuity regarding all things mechanical. ... >.> ... essentialy this guy is no da vinci but he is good at what he does. I could go on but I really don`t care that much.

    I would like to get my hands on Da Vinci`s doodles. Apparently they were amazing and half of them still haven`t been figured out yet. I have to agree, he`s not like Da Vinci, he`s nothing like Da Vinci! Yes they are both artisit, but Da Vinci was also a genius, a creator and inventor and years and years ahead of his time. He was also one of the best cryptologists (I think that`s what they are called... they make codes and cryptic things) IF this is real (and I highly doubt this is, I would want to see a time lapsed video before I believed he made this realistic pic) he is very talented, but he has nothing on the big guy ;)

    I dunno, guys.
    I think Da Vinci and this dude really aren`t comparable in the least. They`re at two totally different ends of the spectrum.

    Besides... this is like the opposite of creativity.
    I wouldn`t really consider it `art`, per se.

    I`m not getting in to the Leonardo debate because this guy is clever not an "artist".

    One thing gets me, if this is real, which I suspect it is ("hyper real"LMAO)why the F**k didn`t he just get a really good camera, take a picture and blow the print up to the size he wanted it - would have taken a lot less time.

    Bollocks! I call complete shenanigans on this! I`m sorry but its fake! It`ll be revealed as a hoax in 20 years or something.

    As for Da Vinci... yeah, he didnt have computers and photos to work from and quite so modern technology, plus he was also an inventor, if this guy can make such a masterpiece using what was available during Da Vinci`s time, THEN you can compare them.

    Until then, you can`t!

    Wow some people are gullible!!!! Haven`t you ever added an effect to a photo, using illustrator or photoshop? Reverse that and you have exactly what he has done. A real artist would have worked evenly laying down layer after layer, starting with block colour across the whole page. This guy, if he really was a painter, would not have finished whole sections then moved on to other sections ie finishing the face before even starting the rest. Sorry but I work all day with real Artists and it`s kind of annoying to see a schmuck like this given even a tiny bit of respect. Photorealism is also not the aim of a true Artist. It`s about going beyond copying to find something deeper.

    Yeah re-post. Crazy skills but completely pointless. If people want an exact photographic representation of something they take a PHOTOGRAPH. This isnt what great art is; iti s a lesson in techinical exactness; there`s little creativity involved.

    Ok, I have to admit that I am inclined to think that this guy faked the whole thing with Photoshop. The progression images don`t look right at all.

    Even if it was real why would you want a painting that looked like a photograph? Art is meant to mean something and it should be a statement of some kind. Da Vinci was a master this guy is not.

    Art is meant to make you think. If you showed this to anyone, all they`d say is, "Wow, that`s a nice photograph..." <_< Sure, it`d be a good conversation topic, but chances are they won`t believe you, and it`s not going to provoke any worthwhile thoughts.

    Looks shopped to me. Anyone can put pencil drawings and piece them together with photos in photoshop. Even if it is real, I`d rather do what I just said then go through all the trouble of making it by hand with airbrush.

    Photorealism is CRAP. He has the skill and no the imagination. Not amazing at all. And it`s a photo. Are you all that blind? If someone told you "the moon is made from cheese" would you believe them?

    "Against:
    1) This is probably better than what Da vinci could have done with an Airbrush.
    2) Da vinci didn`t dedicate his career to Airbrushing techniques in photorealism."
    You moron, that didn`t even exist during his time! He couldn`t possibly have done that! Plus, how do YOU know about what da Vinci could or could not have done with an airbrush, you prick?

    Listen to this crap:
    "Art: (my definition)

    Art is the selective re-creation or conversion of reality by the human mind into concrete imagery according to an artist`s metaphysical value judgments. Real or imagined concepts are filtered and altered through the human mind to the artist`s hand to create an image or sound that did not exist before. The reason photography does not qualify
    as art is that the process removes the filter of the human mind as an interpretative element. Although photography requires technical skill, in the final analysis it is only a mechanical recording of reality. "
    1. Photography IS art. Ignorant asswipe. It is the art that helps you fool minds into believing your crap, sadly.
    2. Concrete imagery? Ever heard of, hmmm, KANDINSKY or POLLOCK? They painted their own view on life, a diverse and beautiful, never-before-seen art.
    3. And, by your definition, you just classified yourself as being as creative and unique as a blank piece of pape

    Why paint a picture of a photograph in 65 hours when you can just TAKE another picture?


    Jeeeesh. Even scanning it would take less time!
