Hello Jeff, they are extraordinary works of art. also here at FAA there is the brilliant work similar on the opening page of FAA the black and white f the person with water on there face that is not a photography but pencil drawing. The person is a featured artist by FAA. thanks for the video enjoyed viewing it.

It's truly amazing the level of detail and skill that goes into making those. I hadn't realized the one with the water on the face on the FAA home page was drawn, even if it dd say it in the title. Thanks for pointing that out to us Michael. And thanks for sharing that BBC report Jeffery. I'm astounded by that level of talent. It's so nice to see.

But .... why? I can do that in 1/320s with my camera. I suppose we should be flattered that brilliant artists think photography is so superior that they should copy its style.

But why do the utterly photograph-like, photorealism works always seem to be of subjects for which photos already exist? Why not of something for which no photo could possibly exist, Napoleon on Elbe, for example? Or Caesar with his legions. Wouldn't an apparent photograph of that be more stunning?

Exquisite work......And in defense of photo realism done in any medium, that is Craftsmanship!!!! As a painter, depicting the illusion of 3 dimensions on a flat surface is no mean feat and takes a lot of study and practice to achieve that level.......not to mention Patience.
Thank you for sharing with us Jeffery.
