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!

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

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?

I know no di Vinci. Who is this di Vinci you're talking about? I heard about DA Vinci but never about di Vinci.
Link anyone? :(

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.

>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.


Agreed!
And da Vinci never sucks!!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
