Not to belabor a point. But after seeing the first step of your work, I can't help but post this overlay.
I don't intend to be mean, but this is clearly a trace.
Like I said before, your shading skills and attention to detail are incredible, but I want everyone to be clear that what you do is not your own creative interpretation of a given source.
To some people this might matter, to others it won't.
Keep up the good work!

O my God
This is photo realistic drawing PHOTOREALISTIC
Everything have to be like on the photo. Maybe I should post a video.
Everything is mesured with the magic thing called ruler.
Every photorealistic drawing in the internet is traced.
I'm really not that good I saw better
Look at this fraud tracer like me :
Again a tracer found:
And at the end the biggest cheater
So you know we all are tracers
I just ran into this thread. That's very nice work.
the value and subtle hue changes are exceptionally good. I find those to be really compelling whether the work is photorealistic or not. Barry, your watercolor "Exhausted" is a perfect example of what I'm talking about. The reflectivity is phenomenal.
It makes me want to break out my paints again. Oh, well. For me, that's what retirement is going to be for. I've not had the time and energy to paint since college. Work, house remodeling, marriage and now kids kinda do that to you!
Retirement = Hot rods and painting.

About 10 years ago we went to the Ann Arbor Art Fair. On the corner there was a booth with people line up 10 deep. As we wiggled our way forward we saw what had people so mesmerized. There were people staring back at you that look so real that it freaked some people out. The artist was Marc Sijan http://marcsijan.com/. I got close enough to talk to him about commissioning a piece for us. At $75,000 for a full body replica I opted to have just a bust of my wife done. Kind of a 3-D portrait. Marc is a disciple of Duane Hanson whose works go for many hundreds of thousands.
She flew to Milwaukee and sat for several sessions of being slathered in the same gel they use to make dental impressions. That set very quickly, but then a plaster armature was laid on top to maintain the shape of the life-cast when it was used as a mold for casting the bust. This was done twice so that he had two molds to work from. Once the resin was poured the artist had a "tracing" from which he applied his art. If you had a pimple at the time of the setting he refused to remove it. It doesn't get more "traced" than that. He even cheated and used medical grade prosthetic eyes. Oh, the horrors of that short-cut, he should have made them himself.
Once the artist is satisfied with the base sculpture the life is restored to it by exactly matching the subjects skin tone. The texture is already there. The art is in knowing exactly how much paint, what color and where it should go to extract what appears to be a living, breathing, person.
I don't see any difference in the process between creating a photorealist drawing from a photograph and creating a sculpture from a life-mask. They both took enormous skill to bring them to life, an element of photorealistic art that I hold dear.

Really? I wouldn't believe it if anyone wanted to start slinging idiotic insinuations about this guy's work after seeing the process on Barry's commission. That's talent. It all looks fantastic.
