    I really admire this artist

    I dont know if deviantart links work on here, but lion83.deviantart.com is so outstanding!! I want to be able to draw that realistic someday. I especially admire how well he draws the hair, whenever I draw it I just draw a few lines and do some darknening so that it somewhat looks like hair. Something that needs to be worked on alot

    Ohhhh...OW! FD...dude! Don't!

    This guy is painstakingly reproducing photographs. Moreover, they are photographs which -- as I'm guessing he doesn't have access to Jessica Alba or Johnny Depp -- belong to somebody else.

    He's done a fantastic job of mimicking a $49.95 inkjet printer. Isn't there more a human can aspire to?

    then why dont you? just get a black and white photograph and copy exactly what you see. not much creativity involved.

    I know it's not the most creative, but it still seems remarkable to be able to recreate a photo that well. When it comes to the artist I admire the most though, you guys probably know already since I've mentioned him enough times

    Even better would be to do exact copy of photo, scan it to computer and print on photo paper of the same size .

    Oh, I think that would be dangerous, Farvus. Like holding up two mirrors in front of each other and wiggling your fingers.

    I think the exercise would probably suck your soul out right through your eyeballs.

    Gotta hand it to the guy though, he's got some excellent graphite control and patience to do these. I'm envious of that!

    Only gripe that i have is that he's wasting alot of potential. He's spending more time duplicating rather than leaving his own mark.

    I think the artist can still be admired for their skill.. sure, it isn't "art" as we know it, and I do prefer work that shows far more soul than this, but wow this artist demonstrates just what the human can do. And I do think it is something to aspire to. If I could reproduce something as perfectly as that, I would love to know what art I'd make on my own!

    Why not just get a Charles Bargue book and do the exercises, you can then end up doing the same thing

    You want to be a human Xerox machine? Anyone can copy a photo with enough patience and use of griding. It's not like it's a complete mystery, I knew someone who did a beautiful photo real piece of work, he wasn't an artist normally and had never drawn before but he copied some photos painstakingly in pencil and just kept working at it until it was at the same level as the link you showed. Guess it just goes to prove, if you're willing to spend enough time on something, then anything is possible.
