Photorealism Tutorial by *markcrilley -- Suggester's words: This eye-tutorial is so well done, explained step by step, and helps the less gifted in drawing among us achieve a very nice realistic piece! I have tried it and was so happy with the result. ( Suggested by Zwoing and Featured by FantasyStock )

Every single little dot or line he`s doing got sense and character and gives more live to a picture than everything I ever managed to draw, and people tell me Im not that bad. So please tell me, what`s the secret with that? Seems, youre able to bring live and sensibility to paper, running through your pencils, I love it though I`m not able to manage that! I salute you!!!! (Please excuse my bad english...didn`t practice this for years)

Awesome! Thank you for sharing this. I found it on Pinterest. I think you should put your deviant art address directly on it. I did a reverse image search in Chrome and found several places where it is on Pinterest. Some come here and some go to a blog from Japan. The best way to protect yourself these days is to put your url right onto your artwork. Thanks... CP

I'm totally gonna try this! I just thought you may like to know (if you didn't already) that this tutorial is used on a on 9GAG post. Nothing is removed from it though, so it was quite easy to find where it came from (top result in a google search for "Photorealism tutorial" ;))

The sunlight and the reflection are an amazing effect!! I think these two aspects in the picture are very important for the final realistic look. :)
