    i can think of 3 suggestions

    A) mixed photo
    B) photoshop filter
    C) real bad painting dude

    dont worry, i get this alot. i litterally plucked the colours and zoomed into a 4000x5000 n something resolution image.... and it took me like.. forever. you have no idea., looool


    my painting style is pretty hard brushed.. and not every efficient. however that lady painting in the 3rd post took me a day. it was my speed test ..


    thanks to all the positive feedback, i know there's some real talented people here, . -- my brother worked for creative assembly for about 3yrs, he's very good and tells me off alot..

    but im here to improve ¬

    those life drawings were drawn from a photo book i have about 3 sketchbooks of model life drawings which were like base practice, -- i use those principles for all my work, so i try my best to get proportions and things right..

    when i get some time i'll post more stuff up¬

    The photo realistic ones look like you just ran Topaz Vivacity (in Photoshop) really hard. You've got a uhh, really wide spectrum of styles, I guess.

    There are jpeg artifacts in the first few images that show they aren't so much studies as they are you painting/tracing over a re-sized photo, which is not just a bad way to represent yourself but also violates someone else's copyright because you are claiming these as original work (a big no-no). You have solid drawing skills, as shown in the last few figure drawings, why not practice more fundamentals (life drawing, color theory, anatomy, design, values) to get away from the tracing and produce some more original work?

    i cant seem to decide wether the artwork you post is really yours or not. im sitting here thinking your pretty much tracing photos. and the rest of the artwork im thinking wow did he copy these aswell from some other artist. be honest show us who you really are

    I tried this on one painting. Somethings don't match up on this one.

    Real Photo: http://images.allmoviephoto.com/2006...le_III_001.jpg



    But the one with the the man in the hills is a Topaz Vivacity filter like these:

    http://www.topazlabs.com/vivacity/effects.html

    Just because some have filters..I am still 50/50 if they are all real paintings or filters.

    hey dude, please PLEASE make a full tutorial on your painting, (especially the first 'photorealistic ones' because (forgive me for saying this) but it looks like a photo just filtered or whatever in painter or photoshop.
    bro if these paintings are really of your doing, then u are a dope artist!
    VERY VERY COOL Especially the top few of tom cruise....

    you guys crack me up.


    i dont have a tutorial, i dont have some fancy effects, i dont have some drop down windows and filters, gadgets and gizmos or a giant japanese robot pen.

    i painted like traditional artists do, YES.. original artwork, took me 2 weeks to a month on each. Lilycat pointed out the original photos, you know why? because i painted original photos.

    there are 4 paintings that contain photo patchwork, and i will tell you where.

    matte painting is atleast 70% photo, and the games industry use photos when painting concept environment work, i on the other hand just wanted to save time.

    -----
    photo patchwork
    ------------

    Airport.
    the only photo blend is the distant sea behind the harbour platform. the rest is called.... hard work.

    woman holding gun.
    there is an axis where the door and the drainpipe is where i patched some photo 'extract', and painted over it with brush strokes to blend it in.

    tom cruise holding the gun.
    the blurred area with the gun is photo patched and so is the lady's elbow.

    tom cruise and the helicopter.
    the foreground floor is photo patched, the rest is not.

    ------------------------------------------
    Zero photo blends (that means NO PHOTOS)
    ------------------------------------------------


    Landscape on the hill,
    Lillycat, you are way off. i spent 3 weeks painting this by hand.

    Tom cruse face.
    2 weeks, traditionally painted by hand.

    waterscape (under water)
    3 weeks, traditionally painted by hand. YES EVERY SINGLE RIPPLE to the point where i almost drowned painting this picture.



    that clears that up i hope.

    I'd say youre not off to a good start having to defend your work like this.
    But you can understand where they're coming from Im sure, the leep in styles and effort. I mean compare the #4 and #5 post to the others, I would think theyre probably old images, because there is just such a leep.

    But over all Id say, this sort of thing should not be in a portfolio, this is like sketchbook stuff (which i'd say your work is in the wrong category; considering youre here to learn as well, sketchbook is a great place for feedback.). In most places they even say " we do not want work from photographs in the portfolio" and that sort of jargon. I mean if you went into an interview with this, you'd be under a lot more scrutiny than whats going on here.

    I hope this doesn't discourage you and I hope you start a sketchbook, because I think thats where you should be. Keep on working, if the hinted allegations towards you are wrong, you could be something special.

    wow, ... should i really make my work any worse just so people can feel better? what a bunch of insercurities.

    go to an art gallery, look at photo realistic paintngs, and start pointing allegations.

    firstly i feel offended that people judge my work based on some kind of norm understanding of painting. which clearly seems to me- visual effects and drop down windows. and actually thats a real poor way to represent yourself as an artist. because you simply computer programming and not drawing.

    the difference between my first post and my later posts are a simple matter of time. nothing more. and fair enough if you think this doesnt make a good portfolio, but to be honest. now that i think about it.

    good. -- because now it's really starting to make me laugh how you are all trying to figure out traditional hand painted work with mathematics. and what's even funnier is i only paint this way because i dont even know how to use photoshop very well.

    im not going to explain myself anymore. all i can do with my work is improve the balance of time scale and quality to make an effecient sense of consisntency. the small face of the woman (britney spears) was done in 1 day. where as the airport was done in 3-4 weeks.

    if the industry cant accept that, then they need to analyse their own methologies and not mine.

    stop asking me to 'understand' why you would think my work is fake. it looks lame and self concious. you should ask a man some proper questions before you serve allegations. and thats that.

    Well, I kind of think you've missed the point, but this thread is kind of on rocky ground.
    All I think should be said, ignoring everything before, is you should keep posting your work. Start a sketchbook, you know just keep going, prove everyone wrong. Pictures can say more than words here.
    Try to keep the forums drama-free.

    If you have works in progress, that can really help show that you are doing it yourself...
