One thing ive noticed about hyper realists, is that they all seem to paint HUGE. My own stuff is pretty large by most standards (7 feet about) but the bulk of my canvas is blank space, and my figures are life size, so they aren't really nearly as large as these guys (these guys being chuck close, the guy in the link, gottfried helnwein, etc.) And having never seen a hyper realist piece in person, I wonder how well they hold up.

A lot of what makes these pieces look so damn sexy all the time is that when you take such a large image, have uber details, and then shrink it down to a viewable size on a computer screen, everything looks extra detailed and pretty. I can imagine that in person if you arent across the room from them they might not have nearly the same effect.

Maybe my next project should just be a giant close up and see if that is at all beneficial to my quest towards better realism.

What's interesting about those is that while they look like photos, they also look like really boring photos. Like what I'd expect to see on the average Flickr account.

You've got the skills, Kamalky Laureano, now let's see you do something interesting with them.

Well done hyper realist work does still look good in person. I've seen a few of Chuck Close's realistic pieces (not the simpler ones that just look realistic from a distance, although I've seen those to and are much cooler than his hyper realistic work), and they are truly stunning up close. To me, how the piece looks up close is what differentiates between good HR work and just alright HR work. There are a few kids in my school that are pushing towards HR, but their work tends to look very good from a distance, but kind of fuzzy right up close. Getting a good sharpness isn't easy.


Look at my art!

I know I'm off topic here but I just wanted to test out NG on my iPhone. Other than being unable to watch movies or play games, it's not too shabby. I can post in the forums, listen to the audio portal, view art and even vote on submissions. Can't download songs or upload pictures though.

Also, re: hyperrealists- you all might want to consider hyperrealist sculptor Ron Mueck- he's pretty intense.

Also have seen his stuff in person, and can't recommend it enough. His sculptures are so realistic I actually felt uncomfortable looking at some of them, like it was tricking my brain into thinking it was real and I shouldn't be staring. Super awesome.

As some of you may know, I am opening a contest that I've been working on for a while. But the thing is, I am stuck at ideas for a theme. No matter how hard I try, I can only come up with shitty ones. I'm asking here as a last resort for some suggestions for a theme.

It wasn't really my idea. Larkatosa came up with it for me, and yes it's a good one, but that is the only idea except for some other lame ones by me.

I guess I am alone with this task. I'm not even sure if I'll proceed opening the contest then, and tbh I may instead donate to either AVAT or comic jam. The hosters know what they are doing anyways unlike me.
