Photo or Drawing???

I recently came across the art by Dirk Dzimirsky from Germany.  He takes very emotional photgraphs of people and turns them into large scale very emotional photorealism drawings and paintings.

I want to know what you think of his artwork.  Do you think it is a photo or a drawing?





Does this intimidate you or inspire you?

  1. It inspires me to actually do good on my graphing project now. I'd prefer not to do that much detail since it would take FOREVER. It looks cool though.

  42. This is really amazing that he can make these drawings so realistic that you are really puzzled whether they are pictures or drawings. I think that these are the drawings, and if they are they are perfection.

    ReplyDelete
  43. This intimidates me very much. Someone who can make a painting look as if it was a photograph can cause terror. The ability to do this could falsify information, or lead lies to countries.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  47. These are so cool. It would take a lot of talent to make a drawing so realistic. If the picture taken during drawing wasn't there it would be hard to choose if it was a photo or drawing.

  60. The artwork is very intriguing, It looks very realistic and detailed. I wish I could draw like this but I can't. Maybe in the future.I know it's a photo because I saw the one where he was drawing it, but the last one where he's crying looks like a photo.

    ReplyDelete

  64. If i cared a lot about art and saw these pictures, I would stop what i was making and just quit my job. This is just to big to be drawings but they are all drawings.

    ReplyDelete
