wow the realism in this is incredible!
Thanks, I'm quite satisfied with this piece. The client actually asked me to tone down the realism in the previous version, lol. Guess I got lucky this time around
6 stars! no 7 STARS! did not rly see it waws not real befor i did read the commentO_o
I would've sworn that to be a photo in its thumbnail, and I took a second glance after seeing it in full view
this is so real! very cool skills!
wow.. you really nailed it in this one! Awesome and very lifelike!
That HAS to be a photographY!
This looks the most realistic of all the new deviations you've recently submitted. Hence, I'm fav'ing this. Well done!
I love how realistically the shadows are placed on his face. You can really tell where the sun is. Nicely done!!
I think I like this one the best. It's very cinematic!
Wow, this one looks more like a photograph than a painting.

Great work as always! Any tips on how you paint the realistic skin so well?
perfect..you are my number one.
the lighting on this is just..... ahdjkahsdjakhdjksas~ <3
These new ones are all great, but this takes the 1st price. The colours are stunningly realistic, and the perspective is spot on. Closer to photorealism is hard to get, yet still you manage to maintain the artistic feel to it. And jeeez, I envy your understanding of metal textures *droool* Fantastic job!
this looks so real @____@ great work <3
From the preview I thought it was a photo of someone in a role-playing costume.
