    Real or Fake?

    Let's see some skeptical artists.

    Is this for real? Or is this fake? Are they master airbrush painters or are they swindlers and hucksters out to stealzor your hard earned cash?

    Does it matter?
    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.

    I don't understand all this protest against Dru Blair. He's been around for a long time. I think what's confusing people is the BIG picture on that link, the close up, is the photograph. I think it's confusing which is the painting and which is the photograph on that link.

    Oh, I'm sure it's real. As it's been said, though, I don't really see the purpose in copying a photograph with an airbrush and ending up with something that looks identical.

    Wait! I've got it!

    Well thanks for the clarification. Does it matter? Well since I posted it I guess it matters to me because I wanted an answer. Which I got! Thanks Melancholie. I wasn't making any statements about the purpose of copying a photograph with such high fidelity.

    My question was serious. Does it really matter to any of us if someone is either spending absurd amounts of time being a human xerox machine, or pretending to be spending absurd amounts of time being a human xerox machine? In the first case, the artist is burning his time doing something that he enjoys and which (judging by the time he spends) may not bring him a decent income. In the second case, he may be pulling the wool over the eyes of a few folks, but he likely isnít making any money doing so, and he isnít impacting our ability to have fun or make money. In either case he is aiming for some momentary glory, which is worth its weight in smoke.

    LOL!!! They just airbrushed over a photo, then displayed the progress backwards!!

    Funny, and clever considering it got a bunch of you fighting already.
