I don't know how you naive people buy that it is real lol I don't buy it at all and I will give you reasons and tutorial how to produce this image... Reasons: I see the pencil he use on all photos (you cannot produce that black of black with that pencil, not possible), also by seen the DOF (photographers know that is something can be produced only by camera, and each time different, it is impossible to create it out of your head DOF, exactly like a camera - even if you use photo as a reference, which he is not). Also I see very photo-realistic pores on the face and I don't see them where his pencil goes over - all texture looks different and primitive, he just drawing some straight lines (tells me he doesn't even know a lot about drawing). Also look how artwork filled out - it is like a printer (and all his works in progress pics are like that) - finished on one side and second one only have very rough reference (not even a real sketch), that is not how artists doing "art workflow" - they go layer by layer, to create even, balanced and realistic look. I don't see any layers here. Also I watched his videos, none of them show him starting and completing even small artwork, they show for 6 min he is going over one small 1 cm hair spot and that's it. Though I don't even need to watch, as I already know it is fake just for looking at pics
So his "supernatural" skill are actually computer skill. I don't know how you people buy it, I bet many of you know how to paint and draw and what is the workflow lol... Here is a tutorial how to create this - any of you can try and succeed I promise :). take a photo you like, process in image processor into drawing (even in photoshop), now take eraser (in photoshop), erase part of your image, so its white. Now print it in big format, add some pencil strokes on the white part to look like a sketch. Now touch it in the middle with simple pencil and take a photo of yourself. Congratulations - you are a Hyper-realism Super star! FAKE no doubts here!

" they go layer by layer, to create even, balanced.." that depend on one's style!! not necessarily ALL artists should do that!

That is basics of drawing, nothing to do with a style! There is a workflow - sketch>draft> details.  It is like you cannot read without know alphabet!!! It used to keep in balance proportions, details, texture, pressure, colors etc . Just by looking close on his hand drawing - I can see few strokes he actually draw there (looks childish, he has no idea how to draw) and those that already finished -  his strokes, color and texture - has nothing to do with the rest of the PRINTED picture, not even close match. There are many good realistic artist, but this is a scam, there is no doubt. Otherwise he would be displayed worldwide in galleries, because he would be the only one inthe world to produce camera-lense dept of filed on the drawing lol

Don't sell him short. He's practiced for thousands of hours for the skill to do that. You don't write that off as talent. He earned his ability.
