This train station is painted in Illustrator and Photoshop, and this guy knows
a bit about both; it is one of the most insane photoshop works i have
ever seen. In high resolution, it is 3 meters wide :mrgreen:

I wish i could see a print of this in full size.

Same first gut reaction as bh:

applied masochism...this picture has little to do with the art of PAINTING, really. Any good digital camera would have been much preferrable ;-)

As the artist writes, though, simply having an image of the train station is not the point.
It's the process of creating such pictures that matters to him.

I believe that some of the people here have spent just as much effort, or even more, creating comparable structures in 3D :)

This kind of exercise is not really new; in classic painting the style called Hyperrealism was born in the 70'. Many artist are still under this genre like Jacques Bodin, Gilles Hesnault and if I'm not wrong Helnwein is also in the genre (Helnwein is austrian). The argument "better take a photo" as always been present in the criticism of this style...

Humm...

No Selden, really if you want to see what "high-tech" artists can do, go the the CGSociety (here: 3D still gallery) :shock:

Now in the limits of Celestia, it's true that Runar's RANIII for example will be quite stunning...
I can't wait 20 years to see Celestia with graphics like the one @ CG society! :P

Masochism as in laying big puzzles... Exept that the artist here *makes* the puzzle
as he goes along.

As for the artistic merit, one can always discuss that, but the workmanship is wonderful...
Besides, defeating the camera seems to me to be sort of the point
of hyperrealism.

Too bad there isn´t a bigger version to be found online, though, i wold have loved to
inspect the totality of it. Very difficult to get a good view through the meager details offered
on his webpage.

I suppose the merit for this kind of art (classic or digital) is the perseverance...
Don't forget all those stuff are done with a photo as reference so whatever artist knowing well his technic (oil, acrylic, watercolor or else or digital painting) just need patience...

In the case of digital painting, I'm a bit perplex because one can fake completely the exercise by editing directly a photo...

I'm not a great fan of this style, but I do prefer the lightly synthetic touch of some painting of the 70' like this one (sorry no closeup) by Cottingham:

(was oil, 2x2m, title Roxy, 197? (don't recall))

By the way, WHO IS the boss here? Mona Lisa?
Is she aware of my aggressive tendencies? Can I ask who is Mona Lisa?

At any rate, Hi there Mona. I'll be good. I promise... :wink:

Yes, Bob.

Mona L. is the Boss and we all have plenty of respect.
Have a look in her profile!

Women power...

Cheers,
Fridger
