  12. Raads

    yep ‘longwittyusername’ is totally right– though that name is kinda weird……..

    these are boring/easy. maybe it would be more impressive in color? Also, the mario one doesn’t make sense. don’t see the illusion there.

    Honestly people – have you become so jaded that you can’t appreciate someone’s art work? Photoshop and other art programs are an artistic tool just the same as a pencil or paint. Enjoy! Smile! Go do some art and maybe you will feel uplifted and not feel the need to cut down others work. :D

  17. Saracen

    Yeah, just because it is digital art doesn’t mean it’s bad art. Awesome pictures!

  18. Critical Eye

    @ Lisa: Well said. These images are fun. Though from a technical standpoint, I think some could use some refinement. In general, well done.

    I don’t think there’s anything wrong with using photoshop. There’s plenty of phenomenal digital work out there. I think the point with this is that it’s just not as challenging/interesting as it has the potential to be. It’s fun/neat though I guess.

    But I guess if I go do some art I will have nothing critical to say about anyone’s work? There’s nothing wrong with a little criticism. It helps people grow as artists. :D

    I think that now that we know how it was done, this series has sort of lost it’s appeal. Not that this makes it any less interesting, it is just that it seems like the same thing over and over.

    cool idea!

  22. Moura Aveirense

    The last one was taken in my city, Lisbon :)

    My vote is for pencil. Digital cameras have made the camera over rated. The pencil is on a comeback friends.
