That's so fucking cool! How cool is that?

That's pretty freakin' cool, is how cool that is!

Yah. I'm not bad if I have something simple to copy, but I have like zero artistic talent. That all went to Our Kid. He can sketch, paint, sculpt or build anything. Ridiculously talented.
Mind, mum's very artistic. The pair of them have an eye for shape and colour and stuff that just passes me by entirely :p They come up with these plans for redecorating or rebuilding a room or a piece of furniture, and I just can't see it. Can't visualise it at all. I just nod along. Then they show me the finished product and it's gorgeous.

It's like an inverted trompe l'oeil. I love it when artists come up with something so completely unique. Thanks for sharing this!

Now someone needs to take one of those photographs and make a painting that looks just like a photograph of a painting.

Oh to have talent, perseverance, luck, ambition, drive, self-belief, luck and the right contacts.

That's awesome! But....he doesn't do their hands... looks kind of weird.

It's that hint that artists give us about their art.

You have to leave a spot to let the skin breathe.
