Silva's work is wonderful. I have his gallery bookmarked at home in fact. It just does not get any better.

Wow, that is very impressive. Look at the hair on that tiger... I have never been good at drawing, but my sister is... my artistic talents are spent on music more or less.

This work is incredible. I'm an artist myself and have done some nearly photo realistic images in watercolor, so I have some idea of the kind of skill required to do this kind of work. Technically it is just outstanding work. Thanks for drawing this artist to my attention.

Incredible!!! One pic took him 30 hours, wow! It is hard to believe this kind of work can be done with pens.
It reminds me of the artist Paul Lung, who takes weeks to finish one drawing. Man these guys must be zen masters to sit for so long, focusing on a small space and making tiny lines.
Nice find!

Peace,

It's great to see so many people enjoy and appreciate his art-work.

His website deviantart has had over 80 000 additional page views in the past 24hrs.

I'm just glad to be here, I want to learn a lot, see a lot, and enjoy to its fullest what other fellow artists have to share.
....Samuel Silva.

Other, less impressed people just call it COPYING.

He gets a PHOTOGRAPH somebody else has taken, and makes a COPY of it.

The Jaguar, for example. The original photo can be found here at this site.


I'm not saying photography doesn't take talent (it does) but what this artist did is much more impressive.
And in ball point pen no less. It didn't take the photographer 60+ hours to snap that picture off.

For me, I prefer the drawn photos over the original. Something about them stimulates my eyes more.

In other words, he LOOKS at the photograph and DRAWS what he sees.

A portrait painter looks at his subject and paints/draws what he sees - Would you call that copying?

A landscape artist looks at the landscape and paints/draws what he sees - Would you call that copying?

A still-life artist looks at the bowl of fruit and paints/draws what he sees -Would you call that copying?

Apart from that - if he'd made a copy of somebody else's photograph, it would be another photograph, therefore it wouldn't be a drawing.

Please, no more calls. We have a winner.

Wow. I don't even dare to the daily crossword with a ballpoint pen.

Small world. He's from my (small) city and I never heard about him.


I do recognize some faces he draw...

They are awesome... except that baby picture. I'm almost sure that is a photo.

I used to be able to draw like that, but when I woke up from those dreams I got in to conspiracy theories.

imo it doesn't matter if the artist is 'into' photorealism or creating original subject matter....the fact that someone can pick up a pen...pencil....brush...and turn a blank piece of paper into something that is so beautiful is simply amazing to me.

sometimes i just look at the work and shake my head in wonderment.

good thread.
thank you.

i enjoyed the side trip through the deviant art pages.
