Sure it's good... as a photo-realistic piece, but that's all anyone seems to care about on this website. It's like people don't realize cameras were invented for a reason. Don't get me wrong, doing stuff like this takes lots of skill and talent, but I just don't find it particularly creative. That is all, keep it up, there always will be a market for this kind of stuff, it's just not for me is all.

CosmicDeath responds:

I understand where you are coming from, but photorealism is simply about making lifelike and realistic representations within the image. It isn't always possible to include everything you want in a photograph, and even if you could, the feel of the end artwork would not be the same.

Photorealism and fantasy are often mixed together in digital paintings. You can have a painting of something that looks photorealistic but be completely or partially drawn from fantasy. Etienne's pin on his hat, for example, did not exist in the reference photo.

Uncanny!

Looks exactly how he looks in person! Great job.

omg

sexy

Hey.

love the picture, but his glasses are the same as mine!

Not as Good as Timmy...

But still fucking amazing. Probably because he doesn't have an epic beard like Timmy :|

Anyway, great job once again, joy. keep up with the secksy art work :3
