    Well. . . if he is fast, it's possible that he could do one of these a day. But even if he doesn't take weekends off, that's still not the best ever income. That suggests that he is using some other means to pump out lots of these in a hurry. They might be prints with some pigment smeared on top. Or maybe he is outsourcing to a workshop in China. In other words, he is running a scam. Anyone feel like calling the Better Business Bureau?

    I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.

    they look like photoshop or some kind of third party plug-in filters to me.
    or maybe quick cloned painter images using impasto effect.

    either way, none of them are good, imo.

    Oh jeez.

    At the very least he could colour correct the photos before "painting" them.

    they were selling these in the sam's club by my home, you gave them your digital photos and they mailed you the portrait. not sure if it was the same guy but they had some sample "oil paintings" there which was very clearly a filtered photo printed onto canvas.

    You should know that when you voluntarily disclose personal information on the Everly Originals, that information can be collected and used by others and may result in unsolicited messages from other people.

    I feel really bad for the people buying this crap. Bad photoshop filtering and spam. Glorious.

    They could teach art as much as they want... but judging by the way it's taught it wouldn't do much good anyways.

    I don't know if I'm right, but I'm willing to get shit on for it.
    Never stopped me.

    Think for yourself, people are sheep....people buying those portraits prove that.

    I don't recall exactly where, but I'm 90% sure I've seen this photo somewhere else before: http://www.everlyoriginals.com/sample.php?sample_num=24

    If you look at the name tag (sorry to any military people if you have a different name for it), it doesn't even look like Hamilton, and I'm pretty sure they put your last name on it in the military, not your first like they do at Wal-Mart.

    You're right, name tags/tapes all use your last name. He has no rank on his uniform, ribbons, whatever.. it could also be a boot camp photo and the parents could be in laws.
