    Why is it that every alleged ‘computer savy’ moron out there on the internet thinks that everything that looks unbelievable is done with PHOTOSHOP? HELLO! There are people out there with REAL TALENT! Those who usually say -”Derrrr…That’s just PHOTOSHOP” USUALLY have NO TALENT whatsoever!

    …and even it if were Photoshop, it wouldn’t be any less impressive, and it wouldn’t require any less talent.

    These are really, really great.

  • Zecc

    …and it wouldn’t be any less art.

    i’m pretty sure its just a painting of a hand with paint on it. it looks more like a painting than an actual hand…and not just because there’s paint on the hand. if you catch my drift

    yo guys look at the eagle there’s a shadow near the wrists

  • Anonymous

    Very well done.

    And besides for the eagle i can’t see why it should be anything else than fantastic skills behind.

    But for the eagle i have a problem with getting the thumb right, atleast my hands can not turn the tumb that much. But even the shadows by the tail can be painted on the arms.

    there is a book of these from the 80s.
    they also had a zebra and dog.
    now if someone says photoshop again i’ll shoot them, because they didn’t have photoshop in the 80s.

    the eagle was in it too.

  • Anonymous

    where r the thumbs on the eagle 1? cos i cant see them i ove all these pics tho dey r fabb!!

  • Anonymous

    The shadows at the bottom of the eagle are artistic shading. They’re done with paint to imitate layers of feathers and convey realism.

  • i’ve seen these in the past rad

    my dad got an e-mail of these and i saw them before! very very very very rad dudes!

  • Nothing

    OMG they r totally real u lozers. In Readers Digest they have a whole write up and those r the exact pictures from it. I hope RD sues u!!

      What do you mean, they are real? Do you mean real animals, photoshopped? or real paintings?

      By the way my brother does this stuff, he rocjs!!!

  • Ellie

  • T-T-T-Tia

    thats awesome. the eagle looks kinda deformed though.

  • Anonymous

    I think that the paintings on the hands are really cool who would have thought to do something like that !!!

  • Anonymous

    this is so amazing!!! i envy the patience it takes to do this sort of thing (you know, these could be real)

  • Ryan

    I agree with Charles (#11) – people always think that anything that is done to a superb quality is done by photoshop. I understand if it is a photograph of a place that isn’t as it seems, then we can have doubts, but super body-art talent shoudn’t be weighed down with the voice of someone saying “It’s photoshopped”

  • nikki

    they have those on a commercial on animal planet for the ROAR thingy

  • Anonymous

    OMG!!! At first glance, I thought the elephant was REAL!

  • Anonymous

    What a con – this is a subset of those on page 1, some of which have apparently been snapped up by some scuzzball commercial organisation.

  • Argentinaworldcup200

    • Shriya

      It is obvious but it is still very CREATIVE and IMAGINATIVE

  • Shriya

    U know what? It’s annoying when people say “oh it’s PHOTOSHOPPED!!!!” and other annoying things like that…it’s NOT if it were photoshopped it would say so, just because something looks cool doesn’t mean it’s photoshopped!!! Cool illusion by the way! NICE!
