I have no problem with someone doing something they enjoy. That is beside the point.
My issue is with this particular form of photorealism being called art. I don`t doubt that a lot of technical skill is required to work Photoshop et al to any degree of competency. But it lacks in flair and soul, it`s cold and sterile.
I didn`t call him useless either, that`s your word not mine. He is however an exhibitionist. Tell me please what else he was doing with this video if you discount show-boating.
I only call this pointless when talking about whether it is art or not. I have always believed that art should have a message and a point otherwise it`s just wallpaper and not art.
I do accept however that what qualifies as art is subjective and thus difficult to define and agree upon. My opinions are not everyone`s and that`s fine with me. Anyone who puts their work out there however should expect to be judged critically, it`s all part of the game.
Art can also be about asthetic beauty which that bloke`s endevours lacked. And those pictures you are talking about would presumeably be of a classical nature and when I say that I mean works in oils, pastels, acrylics, etc. Those display true craftsmanship, no ctrl+z fall back, no filters, no layers, no prepared colour pallettes just pure skill and knowledge of the craft.
Also I don`t care that I annoy you.
I don`t care about the hours he put in. What`s the point of it other than to show off? Again if you want photo realistic pictures, and this is just an idea, buy a freakin` camera and take a photo!
@ antman "Embrace the hours of work he put in" what the hell? Nobody puts work out there and expects universal praise or if they do they are kidding themselves.
That you can go on the computer nowadays and start messing around on Photoshop and BAM!, you just made yourself a picture of Uncle Bucky.
And it fails.
there thats my rant for the day. i fell way better
Dudes a shameless show off.
If you start using "pretty" girls, it gets boring.
I also don`t consider it any less "art" than anything else, it`s just a mroe modern medium.
Oh, and to the person who said to make it "painfully beautful", if you make something too perfect then it ceases to be realistic.
I don`t udnerstad those two lines either, though. :P
Or maybe since I can`t do something like this I DON`T fail at life.
PS, I always skip ahead on these. I get ADHD when it comes to videos on the internet.
I was wondering that too. then i looked at the picture on his website and it turns out that those are strings attached to the sunglasses sitting on his head. The video does not do the picture justice. you have to see the full size image on his site. it, and all his other work, is absolutely amazing.
if youre going for art though, painting drawing and sculpting seem like more appreciatable. maybe because its harder to fix mistakes or tougher to call photoshopped... i dunno
I myself would rather take a photo. More realistic with all that painful computer work taken out of it
I was hoping no one said it first ^_^
I wonder if this is a real person?The nostrils look strange to me for some reason. o_o`Better than I could do, I guess.
