    Wow. Just goes to show that if you know any piece of software well enough and have the talent you can do amazing things.

    Very impressive.

    Impressive.

    It probably helps to have a tablet and be a graphics professional though. :)

    Damn, makes you wonder why you pay $200 for the latest graphic software, huh? :)

    Well, not really. :D

    It's an impressive demonstration of getting a lot out of a little (And of having the patience to build a sandcastle with a teaspoon), but as illustrations go, it's passable, but hardly mind boggling.

    I saw a documentary where Picasso drew pictures in a darkened room just using a pen flashlight; it's always been the person and not the software. With that very simple fact in hand, something way too many people seem to grasp, there's really not much of a surprise there. More skilled party trick than notable achievement.

    Snark.

    Is there proof of him actually drawing that in ms paint or could he just be claiming to have done it there? :D

    I know someone who does that stuff in paint.
    It must be a genetic dissorder or something:confused:

    HOW?

    All those extra minute details really brought it alive. How many of us would have got about half way through and thought they'd done a good job?

    My jaw dropped. Such attention to detail!

    I'm so jealous of people who can draw like that, especially with graphics programs. I wouldn't even be able to do that on paper... even if I traced over the original drawing :eek:



    Ugly car though :D :p

    Well said.

    It was very impressive to see the drawing come alive.
