Daaaaaaamn is right!

Wow.

How long has he been doing that?

What I find interesting is that it took him 7 hours to make a reasonably good simulacrum of a picture… and then another 63 to make it look real. Getting through the uncanny valley is *hard*.

But – what’s the point of that

Draw a photorealistic dragon! That would be cool.

Oh exploitable…

Now all he needs to do is draw a picture of Limbaugh blowing Cheney and the circle will be complete.

I’ve got a magic box that can do the same thing, faster than the blink of an eye.

But still, it’s pretty cool they can do that with an air brush.

A lot of photo-realistic art is basically copying from photos. The amount of impressive this is depends a lot on how much photo-reference was used.

Straight copy of a photo: meh. Why even bother?

Based on multiple photo sources, none of which look exactly like the girl in the photo: Quasi-cool.

Done with no reference to photos: Impressive. But honestly still, why even bother, other than as a technical exercise, when you could achieve the same result from a photo and half an hour in Photoshop?
