Normally I'm not a fan of photorealism, but farks sake that is good.

The_Religious_Left: How can you tell?

From the article -

Formerly a traditional painter, Juan began the drawings three years ago based on photographs of nights out with his friends.

Poilar: real question is: who's the hot model?

His painting and drawings sell for close to $10,000 a pop. I have a feeling he has a hot girlfriend (or boyfriend).
 
2008-02-01 11:11:14 AM

2008-02-01 11:14:15 AM
I envy people with artistic talent. I wish I could could see something and be able to draw it. I'm amazed and impressed.

Then again I can't draw a straight line, so maybe my opinion doesn't count for much.

I would say there is a definite difference in that with live models, evrything from the light to their position can change minutely. The model is in three dimensions, so perspective changes. Thus it is a far more subjective rendering of the model.

Using a photograph as the model provides an image to essentially copy using whatever skill you have. Since the photo is still and unchanging, more time can be spent copying it. No matter when you look at it, it will be the same. Furhtermore, since it is two dimensional, perspective is fixed. Looking at a photo at a different angle yield no more insight into the image.

That said, his skill and artistry is still great, the product is just different.

Would anyone care to explain to me how people do such large drawings in perfect scale ?

I could not see any sign of grids marked on the canvas, to enlarge a photograph he has or something...
 
2008-02-01 11:17:35 AM
No time for that - I have to get the gym and I'm eight minutes late!
 
2008-02-01 11:17:48 AM
Wow fish, almost a simulpost.
You must have taken classes!
 
2008-02-01 11:17:53 AM

Good, because I have to be at the gym in 26 minutes. Also, the girls are fat and have failed to impress me.
 
2008-02-01 11:19:14 AM
Certainly good technical work, but these sorts of things always leave me wondering why I'm not just looking at the photo.
 
2008-02-01 11:19:17 AM
The guy's website is Here (new window). Lots of pics.
 
2008-02-01 11:21:19 AM
Photo, or drawn by hand with a pen... It's impossible to tell.

Very impressive!
 
2008-02-01 11:21:26 AM
Here's his gallery for a lot more....

Some are NSFW.
 
2008-02-01 11:21:56 AM
He sure likes photorealism, look at some of his paintings here (pop).
 
2008-02-01 11:22:23 AM
Wow...that's damn good!

Even with an overhead projector, I'd have no chance in hell of doing that.
 
2008-02-01 11:22:57 AM
Wish the pics were more flatering.

I am not sure you are aware of this, but when you take photographs using a model you can change the light and ask them to move before taking another photo. It is also possible to take more than one photo of a model. The only reason earlier artist did not use photography is because it was not available.
 
2008-02-01 11:24:42 AM
That's nothing! I've done better with an inkjet and a single black cartridge.

/Ran out before the legs, though.
