I've recently started loving a little bit of hyper realism. Maybe because I know I could never paint anything other than 'abstract' and other peoples talents impress me a lot. I guess it's a little tacky, maybe that's why I love it so much. Maybe a pencil painting for my one day studio?
Whatever your stance, these images are pretty amazing in my books. You can see more of them over here with a great compilation of talented folks.
