Daily Deviation

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.

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…

Haha good joke that it's a drawing. :) It's soooooo realistic! :D
EarthsSaviorSonGoku Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
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!

I wanted to leave an original comment but I guess "This is outstanding" will not cut it ;-)

You are the John Kacere of pencil!
Egor2k12 Featured By Owner May 24, 2014
I think people seem to forget that these drawings are pain-stakingly copied from photos. It's not like he drew this from imagination. It's not as impressive as you may think.…
m33t4 Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2014
yea this is nothing.. either lame hq print back-deleted with soft brush and grab a pencil take a photo, or copy from actual photo. lame both. learn from big painters and think and draw that.. learn lightning from your head, refelction, etc - THATS ART not copying from a photo
ronkedoor Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
i saw the video you added in your comment , en partly i agree with it , but why are you putting so much effort into showing people that this is not 'art' ? in my opinion it is absultely stunning , its not creative , or imaginative , but still, a beautiful work of art and there s no need to say all this negative stuff.
Nikelfield Featured By Owner May 21, 2014
This is the most amazing piece if artwork of any kind I have ever seen in my life. That's a heavy statement considering there are endless forms of art. I've taken into consideration music, paintings, drawings, photography, literature, sculpture, and live art, yet none of the works I have thus far observed in any of these categories can beat this one out for being the single most incredible work of art my eyes have ever had the pleasure of gazing upon. To think that this is not a photograph is absolutely ludicrous but somehow true. You sir have an unbelievable talent. Please keep doing what you do.
