The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

The Fusion Of Photography And... Paint?

Vanderleun points us to this artist, who claims to be responsible for creating the following portrait with a paintbrush.

Honestly, I find that a little bit hard to believe. But hey, if it's true, then Dru Blair just might be the greatest painter in history.

Update: This is the last "painter" who really impressed me. Whoever said conservatives weren't interested in the arts? ;)

Actually it's not all that surprising. There's a whole genre of artist out there who paints like that- it's called "photo realism". Check out this artist on Flickr to see some more examples.

He uses an airbrush, and it's just amazing.  his aviation paintings are also quite thrilling.

Hmmm.. Paint by the numbers, using a projector, and erasers and exacto knives?

Still have not seen how he can paint fine hair, shiny teeth from a camera flash, blurriness from out-of-focus parts, ultra-clear-fine deliniations.

Aint buyin it.

yep, i'm a noob.
