Photorealism

Found this really entertaining gallery of photorealistic art over at weburbanist. Some of these pictures are really amazing. I especially enjoyed the Diego Gravinese stuff. Love his choice of subjects and the palette he uses.

One picture in particular boggles my mind though. The picture below by artist Dru Blair is incredible. That is a digital painting folks. It’s hard to wrap your head around. Because of it’s realism, the image of a model named Tica is surrounded by controversy on the web. Even with pictures documenting the whole process.

This is a painting.
