I thought that it is oil color, How do you work with acrylic with such awesome details?
I love your work

Great Illusion but the anatomy of that neck looks pretty wrong to me! Am I the only one who thinks that?
Or may that G.Medici was a freak of nature. Good god, just look at it!

his reference was based off a statue of G. Medici. Proportions went out the window during that time of age, they were idealized.

This provides a lovely new perspective from the classical sculpture and I'm enamored with the idea of media transfer. I'm not fond of it's textbook like aesthetic as it feels closer to a NatGeo spread than a painting, but I'm sure it reads better in person (especially considering size issues on computers.) I believe that the concept of 'freeing' the form from the media rather evident in it's process, appearance, and details, and that definitely connects it conceptually to Michelangelo and provides a deeper artist bond beyond just the subject. Super neato :O

Oh my God! That's so impressive! The neck seems to get longer with the time passing I spend staring, but I love it anyway. Any chance you're going to create a masterpiece with a whole body to relish? Besides ... by the pictures I've already seen, you seem like one of those artists who aren't afraid of a canvas by the size of a cinema screen. Such greatness. I so, so, so, so, so, so bow my head.

The neck seems longer than what would normally be proportional because this was done as a media transfer from a Michelangelo sculpture to a digital work. This was original a marble statue.

Very beautiful. Very, very beautiful.
His neck's lenght and angle make me think of antique painting styles, like European art in 1500... and I love the shape of his eyes, so sweet!
Great work :)

Not only you have taken credit of this obvious rip off, but you have spoiled Michelangelo's work and done a pointless journey which should have stayed in marble.... No, I disagree!

Now, tell me, why would this be a rip off? And how could this be a spoilage of Michelangelo's work? Michelangelo is a sculptor, And Joongwon is a painter. Probably the case is that he was inspired by Michelangelo's work, and wanted to do it himself, so, what you're basically telling is, that fan art is nothing but a pointless spoilage? 
That's what I see in your comment, sorry if I misunderstood it, but please do reply.

It would have been nice if the name of Michelangelo would appear in the description below the image.
I admit I tend to react quite violently when someone kind of takes credit of something done by a great master such as M
I've done a lot of work inspired by artists of the past ramonpp.deviantart.com/art/Hen… that I like to call studies.

Hyperreal painting, on the other hand, pisses me a lot cause it proclaims itself as the ultimate form of art and I feel it so empty and boring.
Michelangelo's sculpture is a poem and it has nothing to do with the real world, that's the reason why I react to this painting like I did.

Everything is a remix vimeo.com/14912890 but this is a bad one
