Sensazioni by ~DiegoKoi ( Suggested by Dragos-Sulgheru and Featured by SRudy )
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.

Britney Spears OOOOOOH I.. almost can't believe it. If I stared at this forever, I would never be able to guess that it is indeed a pencil drawing without reading the comments and seeing the WIP first. Even knowing that it's a pencil drawing, I can see no hint of it anywhere in this picture. You are truly talented. I wish I could think of better words to describe but I am too amazed.

I don't believe this is not a photograph. Its too perfect. I thought you were a photographer not an artist. wow.
AlexanderNesterov Featured By Owner Edited Oct 13, 2014
без сомнения что после рисунок обрабатывается в фотошопе с добавками текстур
Полный бред! Мне очень жаль тех, кто верит, что это рисунки карандашом ( Сходите уже, наконец, в любой музей, где есть рисунки карандашом!
И слово-то какое придумали «гипер-реализм», чтобы дурить народ! А народу нравится! Грустно…

well i think it is impressive even if it was from a photo, its very awesome that a person can draw something like this from a photo using pencils to make it look like a photo again, that is outstanding!
