Rarely does a piece of art completely and totally blow me away. I tend to be quite critical. And so when I say that this is without a doubt the most amazing work I have ever seen on DeviantART, I mean it.

Where to begin? The amount of sheer foresight that had to go into this is mind-boggling. Not only did you manage to produce complete photorealism, but the sense of lighting and perspective is impeccable. You truly have a gift.

The most amazing thing about this work is that the viewer simply cannot come to grips with the fact that it isn't a photo. No matter how long I stare at it, no matter how closely I look, it defies all my attempts to see it for anything other than a photograph. The fact that it is hand-drawn is nothing short of a paradox.

What could I possibly say about this?
Purely amazing work, the realism in this is just phenomenal. I have never seen this sort of quality with just pencils, anatomy is perfect, lighting, shading, and the detail with the water, I literally thought this was a picture at first. I'm still in awe at how you managed to make that water effect, unbelievable really.
I have never come across something so amazing as this, I'm not the type to generally give so much praise for a piece of art, but, this is beyond my comprehension.
You have, by far, the most talent I have seen in a very long time.

I find it bemusing that so many doubters feel the need to post such negative comments saying that this is a photograph and accusing the artist of being nothing short of a liar. Just because such people can't imagine having the ability to produce work of this standard themselves it doesn't mean that others have such limits. The artist has dared to progress to a level of total realism and should be applauded for his mammoth efforts and not have his integrity questioned by lesser folk. Congratulations on your work and your fantastic gallery DiegoKoi. If people like you didn't push the limits then the rest of us wouldn't know where they were - peace
A true work of genius! I'm beyond words. This is something I'd pay a good amount for!! :) 
Oh my goodness! I didn't even know that this was on deviant art! LOVE IT! WOW! :) Nothing here looks like a drawing, too hyper realistic! :) :)
