    @Stail sorry, my bad – fixed.

    @a I am not sure I could say something like that – I respect these works, I couldn’t do it. But it’s always easier to criticize, and image presentation are not my point of article in this case.

    Great collection, don’t necessarily agree with @a these are all respectable artists and their TALENT and POTENTIAL speaks for itself.

    @Dainis Graveris you got it fixed, but not yet on the title of the page i.e. the one that appears in the browser.

    Great work though, it is appreciated

    But this is just realist art… : / … you know, nowadays artists are more conceptual… Yes, drawing realism means you have the ability, but the most difficult part is actually making your own style, deforming, creating something from your creativity, simplify,….

    I think the links are good, but it feels too… backwards… I think. More like j3concepts and Manicho, that you posted, because well, for me all the others are pretty similar…. There isn’t something that identifies them….
