This is not a Photograph!

So have you ever been flipping through things on the internet and you come across an image that you just assume is a photograph and as you scroll down you see that it is actually a painting.  Well that just happened to me.  So I just had to share it with you.

I am always amazed by hyper-realistic art.  I think I have plenty of patience when it comes to creating art, but these people seem to have unreal amounts of patience and dedication to create these life like works that look like they could just walk off the page.   But I will let you decide what you think of this artist.  Unfortunately I can't find her name.

Any thoughts?  What do you think of it?  Who would you draw or paint if you had this talent?  Or do you think she could do better?

  1. This is so realistic I cant believe it. I wold not be able to do this. I wonder how long this took to make this. I'm guessing this took a long time to do this.

  4. I think this looks so realistic. If this didn't show the steps of this artist making it I don't think I would believe it wasn't a picture. If I was able to do something like this I would paint portraits of important figures in society, I don't know who exactly though.

  5. I showed this to my mom when I first saw it, and she didn't believe the "this is not a photograph" caption! The way the hair is so thin looks incredibly hard to do. And it looks like she shaded each individual pore and wrinkle.

  6. This is so realistic. This reminds me of when I saw Morgan Freeman finger painted on an Ipad. That took them a very long to to finger paint Morgan Freeman, so I would imagine that it took a long time to make this piece of art.

  7. Oh my gosh, I can't believe that this isn't a photograph. It's so realistic. This must've taken forever to make this. This is incredible.

  8. This is so cool! I couldn't believe it wasn't a photo. I couldn't do that if i tried, which I have tried drawing realistically. It didn't look as good as this.

  10. It takes some true talent to do that. You would have to have some true patience to be able to get a man to look like like a photograph. Plus you also need to be able to get the extra hints that each photograph carries.

  11. I think this is a truly amazing piece. The person who made this must have had a lot of patients, because I know I would never be patients enough to draw this.

  12. This kind of talent is completely insane. I admire and envy anyone with this level of ability. I can't imagine how much practice and time something like this would take.

  13. Doing this would have to take a lot of time, especially since it looks so real. The way the hair looks, it would be hard unless you layered the paint to make it look thin.

  14. This is extreme Mrs. DeWitt! Nothing I couldn't do but It' still pretty tight. This is almost as good as my portrait I did. All by my self.

  15. This is really cool. I would never be able to do anything like it. If I could, I would want to draw my family and friends. I would take a lot of patience, but I would like to try.

  16. This is stunning, this is such a great talent of a drawing of the actor who play Magneto in the X-Men. At first glance this looked like a picture and not a drawing.

  17. I cannot believe Gandalf shaved, and even got a haircut. Did he give up wizardry? Why would he do that? It's pretty cool that that isn't a photo though. OMG! I still can't believe he shaved.

  18. i cant imagine the time that was put into this painting. the detail is unbelievable and stunning. this person must have a lot of patience to sit and imagine the detail into one persons face.

  19. This is truly amazing how someone can make a picture so realistic. The end results literally looks like someone took a picture of him. This looks really time consuming and hard to do.

  21. This is crazy realistic!! I can't imagine the time put into this peice of art. I would love to be able to make something so real that you cant tell that it's not real. This artist has a way with his work.

  22. I like how detailed the picture is! Whoever painted this had to put in lots of work and detail. I would take forever to make something like this.

    ReplyDelete
  23. wow that really photo perfect. This could only be done by someone with incredible talent. I wonder if drawings like this will be even more realistic than reality in the future.

  24. i love this picture but not picture, when i first saw it i didnt know it was a painting and it really shocked me when it wasnt. i think the eyes really make the pictue

    ReplyDelete
  25. This is crazy to think on how they created this. I don't think that I could even draw anything close to this, because there is so much detail that I would soon give up from waiting too long.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I think this is really good but i could never do this. This is made out of paint?? this is so amazing

    ReplyDelete
  27. This is crazy! It's amazing how someone could be this talented. I can't imagine how much time and practice it would take to be this good.

  37. This is crazy how people can make these paintings of people look so real. It is basicly a picture taken of the actor more than a painting. It must have taken so much time to finish that -Vincent M

  42. I can't believe that this picture she drew is so realistic! I know I would never be able to do that like she did. But if she does another one, hopefully it's someone I know

    ReplyDelete
  43. She is very good at painting. it takes a lot of work to paint a person that looks so realistic. Great job.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I think this is cool because it pops out like its right in front of you. This takes talent and a really good artist to do it and you have to have a lot of focus. That looks like it would take forever to do.

    ReplyDelete
  66. This paintings is super good. Its realist, if it did not show that its a paintings I would have said it's a photo. It would be cool if she drew me like that.

    ReplyDelete
  67. This painting is so cool. It's peaceful and weird at the same time. I like how they used so many colors for his face.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I wish I could paint like that, I'm terrible at painting. This painting has so much detail and is crazy to think that she painted this and it's not just a picture. If this artist can do that why doesn't she paint/draw a famous person, someone that everyone knows.

    ReplyDelete
  69. i think that these are very cool. i could never do this but if i could i would paint them because i like painting

    ReplyDelete
  70. Even though you can faintly tell this is a painting, it really adds to the piece because it has a lot of brighter colors making the painting more appealing. I'm sure painting something like this takes years and years of practice, and I hope someday I'd be able to do something half as good as this. But I don't think just painting something realistically is cooler then a really cool stylized piece, but you can definitely tell it takes a lot of time and skill.

    ReplyDelete
  71. this is very cool and must have taken for ever I could never do this but if i could i would paint cauy

    ReplyDelete
  72. i can't believe this is actually a painting. It looks like a photograph of this guy. Wouldve taken forever to do that.
