Yes, I do photograph them. You may find a photographer who specializes in taking pictures of the art works. As I'm currently working & residing around the biggest Art School in Seoul, I find lots of them
thankyou for your response! i admire your artwork and you are a big inspiration for me, i enjoy doing portraits and looking at portrait artists, and i especially like your paintings and painting style (:
Superb photorealism and a beautiful portrait. I disagree with the comments about the softness of the hair at the top. It's important to have some blurred edges to stop it looking like a cardboard cut out. Leonardo da Vinci knew this.
everyone says your work looks like photo. but i don't thin this s true. it's more than just photorealistic. your paintings capture details a photo does not show. it's hyper-realistic and thus so utterly interesting to look at.
This is one of those times when I can't avert my eyes away from the picture and have to stare at it. How am I supposed to look away? I'm just looking into his eyes, and expecting him to turn his gaze towards me with that serious expression of his...
the only comment I have is that the blending of the hair on the top of his head into the light background doesn't really fit the style of the rest of the piece (too soft). But other than that it is perfect.
When I log in here, I always hope that there is an update from you. I am so very much impressed with your work. And it keeps getting better. it is smaller things, but every time there is something that has improved. in this one, it is the hair. In my oppinion the longer hairs are a bit too soft, but those eyebrows and the short hair on the side of his head and past his ear... dude, that is perfect.
