    …whoa! just whoa!

  • xander

    I really like the 10th pic where its just her hair and eyes done, looks like a finished piece already

  • Pink Elefant Designs

    Amazing work! I’ve always admired photorealism.

  • Samuel

    Spectacular!

  • Very realistic. Skills!

  • heather

    i like how he demystifies the process. it’s more interesting than the content of the drawing, or the final result

  • ya i think so too – i enjoy most of the unfinished images more than the finished work.

  • jon

    technically amazing, but i honestly think what would have been a more interesting drawing is if stopped after the eyes

  • rye

    the hair is a trip! how the hair pops out of the page like that.. magic.

  • El

    Wow. Beautiful.

    He makes it look like it’s easy to follow the steps. But I will definitely end up with something way off.

    Such great skill.

  • Wow, human 10Mpx camera. Respect.

  • koston

    what kind of pencil he use? I mean the white one, used to draw on pastels.

  • tais

    I think it’s a tiny eraser–look at his website and scroll down for a bunch of more photos of the process. He also lists his materials and there’s no mention of a white pencil.

  • alberto

    ¡BEAUTIFUL!

    • olumide

      pls can you tell me the na of the material that you are useing

  • FF222

    So where is art in doing a job of a photocopier with a pen and tracing lines and shades of an original photograph obviously projected onto a sheet of paper?

  • Paul E N Okafor

    Well done Son. I’m very proud of what you’ve become. Your perseverance and full dedications with your daily practice is now paying you the dividends of hard work. The sky will be your limit of success in your field of Art. God bless you.

Booooooom Reader Submissions: December

december-600

Here’s this month’s Reader Submissions post! Please share your work here if you’d like to be considered for a feature on Booooooom. The comments allow images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.

One of the things that makes Booooooom unique is all the encouraging comments people send back and forth on these monthly submission posts. If you’re going to share your work please take an extra second to leave a nice comment on someone else’s work!

Voting up work is like high-fiving that person and it also helps us see what work you guys like! Remember, even if your work isn’t featured on the main site these posts can send some decent traffic to your portfolio! The link at the bottom will open up this full post, simply scroll down and use the commenting system to submit your work.

 

Submission guidelines:

 1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.

2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.

3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.

4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.
