    Photo-realistic painting always blows me away.

    • it’s not often my cup of tea but i quite like the cropping choices and the almost hyperreal aspect to these

      • Andrew Dobson

        well said.
        human hands+brushes reproducing photos doesn’t seem like a worthwhile pursuit, but I love her works especially some of the collaborations she is doing with her husband!

        Photo-realism does help developing an eye for subjects I think. It’s not as easy as just duplicating it with a scanner. In the end you will always somehow see the hand of the creator in a photorealist work… That said, I like this artists’ work, and there’s definitely a twist to he work, not entirely photo-realistic per se (what does that mean anyway? ;) )

        Just because y’all suck at photorealism doesn’t mean you need to try to make it seem like a worthless field of art.

        Ok, now my beard is getting offended… :p

        You can admit this hipste r eee tattooed chick has more talent in her pinkie than any of you. ;)

  • Eric Hosford

    So Intense!

  • sara MADbouli

    woah these are bloody insane!

  • Leone McComas

    The 6th image is so striking

  • Philbert

    Can you use Year/Month/Day for the article date to at least fit into some alpha/numerical order? This silliness of putting the day first in your Eurocentric date formatting is retarded since the day is tertiary in date-field organization.

  • @SpitAndSpite

    beautiful stuff. curious at the process, anyone have any links/info on it?

Director Jordan Peele’s Alternate Ending to “Get Out” (Leaked Video Clip)

Spoiler Alert: Do not click below if you haven’t seen “Get Out” yet! I wasn’t completely mind-blown by this movie but I really enjoyed it and I’m excited to see what director Jordan Peele makes next (apparently his next “social thriller” is slated for 2019). I don’t want to say too much but I thought the end of the film was unexpected and satisfying. Now an alternate version has leaked and it’s interesting because it’s also not what I thought was going to happen. Watch the full clip below.
