LovelyLori (Mar 31, 2004)
holy shiAT!!!!.... whoa... REAL... it's a photograph! WONDERFUL work, it's done far as I can see!
DinoFlorist (Mar 31, 2004)
it's very, very good. Of course it's very, very good! But I have one, unrelated question. How can you be so lucky to have 3 horus of work take up only 173kb when my one or two layer drawings take up 680kb in my first edit of only 1 hour!~ Not fair, but you deserve it!
Gigandas (Mar 31, 2004)
Thanks you two, but Lori, her hair isn't even anywhere near done^^;.And Dino, I don't know exactly what it is that I do to save space, but for this one I'm planning to use 3 layers and all I do when I draw is just draw continuously in the 1~3 hour revisions.I don't know if that helps any, but that's all I do...
DeadlyBlondeArcher (edited Mar 31, 2004)
Yeah, it must take more space if you try to pick up the kids from school, burn dinner, have a quickie with your husband, lalala (did I say that?) lol! This is just awful Gigandas. You totally suck. This should be deleted. HAH! How in tha??? do you do it? It does look like a photograph!

edit: I swear I had to rub my eyes and look at it twice to make sure I wasn't seeing things, it looks so real.
davincipoppalag (Mar 31, 2004)
Wow..she's beautiful Gigandas! The skin and eyes are positively perfect. The teeth could use a little more definition, I think. Your talent is amazing....
fleeting_memory (Apr 2, 2004)
This is amazing-she's even better looking than the Dance Queen one-awsome job
BlackLaertes (Apr 2, 2004)
I have no right to be commenting on the advanced board, but Gigandas, this is just beautiful! I don't know how you did it, it seriously does look like a photo.
LKC22 (Apr 3, 2004)
your realism is great! it looks just like a real photo. i had to blink a few times. very good
Pantera (Apr 3, 2004)
WOW do not know what else to say, just amazing work.

tappie_chan (Apr 3, 2004)
wow! this is EXCELLENT!! your talent is crazy my friend.
Stubs (Apr 4, 2004)
looks exactly like a picture. awesome
Gigandas (Apr 4, 2004)
Thanks guys :).Truth is though, I worked on a second revision, but it didn't turn out the way I wanted it too, so I gotta still get back on that.The completed pic should include two people(yes, including her).Kinda why she's off to the right of the picture.Only the start of the journey....hopefully it sees it's end soon enough^^;.

Fixed her right eye in a major surgery...mainly a safety save....
fleeting_memory (Apr 5, 2004)

Still a ways to go....the jacket is hard.......does it even look real^^;?It's hard to tell when the picture isn't completed as a whole.....
davincipoppalag (Apr 5, 2004)
The teeth still look a bit amorphous in the middle. (Goddamned picky old fart,stfu! ) It is a wonderful piece of work.
tappie_chan (Apr 6, 2004)
Hey everyone this is TappieChan's aunt Dae. I just had to comment on this masterpiece. My GOODNESS!!! do you know that your hands have been kissed by God. You are TALENTED!!! and I thought my neice was gifted, but this picture is literally unbelievable. The way you laid her hair it looks so real... anyway I can go on and on. Peace
fleeting_memory (Apr 6, 2004)
she's right you know-about your hands being kissed by God-that's a very good way to put it-can I kiss your hands too? Maybe some of it will rub off...^^
Gigandas (Apr 6, 2004)
lol, of course FM >v<(kissing my hands).Not that you haven't done it already ;).And davinci, I'll get on that.Thanks for the tip, I appreciate it ^^.
As for everyone else, thanks for the comments.Don't be afraid to critique it either^^;.I "will" use critiques that I feel are necessary in helping the picture turn out better...
Gigandas (Apr 6, 2004)

Hmm....I guess I'm ready to start the guy now(gonna be right over her shoulder).....anyways, had to safety save even though I don't know if I'll do another revision for the night....
DeadlyBlondeArcher (Apr 6, 2004)
Okay, this is just impossible. I don't know how you hacked in here and cut and pasted a photograph, but I just refuse to believe that you did this... (Davinci!, Go clean your glasses or something!)
davincipoppalag (Apr 7, 2004)
Now you got em! This is absolutely incredible. (Thanks God for kissing Gig's hands..and several others here too) This is wonderful. (DBA..blllffttttt lol hee hee))
Gigandas (Apr 7, 2004)
Yay, I was just working on the next revision for about 2 and a half hours and then IE just randomly quit on me^^;;;......*sigh* all that is gonna suck.....
marcello (Apr 7, 2004)
heh. ie. heh.
davincipoppalag (Apr 7, 2004)
Commends Marcello for not saying "load Moxilla" lol remarkable restraint... Gigandas this is one incredible piece, it is just amazing...
15grifficorntears (Apr 8, 2004)
HOLY FUCK DUDE! that's awsome! know wonder it took you 7hrs to do that!
Aubrey (Apr 13, 2004)
"... and a person who needs no introduction... Gigandas..." ~audience applauding~ This is just unbelievable.. really. I hope you're getting paid somewhere to draw incredible art like this. A lot of people on this site aughta be.
laurael (Apr 16, 2004) are the realism GOD. How the hell do you do these and then you still have plenty of kb's left?! You're gonna have to tell me how...unless, of don't want to, hehe. Damn, I gotta learn the tools...

Whoa, it worked^^;.I was testing to see if this would still send after I got disconnected in the middle of my revision.....guess it did.
fleeting_memory (Apr 18, 2004)
I'm so glad you're working on this again-this looks awsome and deffinately deserves to be in the showcase for the showcases-like elite showcase or something-and it's not even done
staci (Apr 18, 2004)
*awaits finish anxiously*
LovelyLori (Apr 18, 2004)
what in God's name are you doing? how? huh? soooooo goodly!
Gigandas (Apr 18, 2004)
Does the guy's head look too small in comparison to the girl's?Maybe it's right though, being that his face is behind hers........hmmm......I guess it's not SO bad though^^;.....I just wish I did a better job on the girl's face though.I really can't draw girls as well as I can draw guys^^;;;.
LovelyLori (Apr 18, 2004)
ohhh, you are SO fulla honky....! lol and I think the proportions look fine

Gigandas (Apr 18, 2004)
It's my friend's friend from choir.I think I remember her telling me it was her friend and ex-boy friend....I'm not so sure^^;;;
emmamommalag (Apr 18, 2004)
If all the revisions had not been visible here, I'd never have believed this wasn't a photograph. Wow, you are amazing!
davincipoppalag (Apr 18, 2004)
Gigandas , this is the best I have seen you do here.
Hedwiga (Apr 19, 2004)
It looks like a photo but better! Her eyes are wonderful! WOW!
Pandora (Apr 19, 2004)
I don't believe I have seen anything so real looking ever. You are truly gifted.
Minitsaru (Apr 19, 2004)
thats.... *speechless, and amazed*
Gigandas (Apr 19, 2004) do know that black and white are easier than color right?That's probably why^^;.But I don't know....I kinda liked how Sapphire Weapon turned out even though everyone thinks it looks like batman when it looks completely different^^;.But thanks anyways.
Kloxboy (Apr 19, 2004)
I'll quote what Thug once said "this is an art orgasm". Great work Gig.
davincipoppalag (Apr 19, 2004)
Well said Clox lol Hot Damn! lol
DinoFlorist (Apr 19, 2004)
This is the most realistic thing I have ever seen. It is a great talent, and great work. I mean, it's from a photograph, but it IS a photograph! I don't draw from pictures because I always say, why not just take the picture becasue it will never be as good, but if I could do it like this I might change my mind, because this is too awesome!
Aubrey (Apr 19, 2004)
Awesome work Gigandas... I can't say anything anyone else hasn't already said. Like Clox said.. I think you hit the G spot with this one!! lol
dixielandcutie (Apr 19, 2004)
*grin* theres nothing left to say, but you rock
laurael (Apr 19, 2004)
Now that it's done...I have just one more thing to say...
This is BEYOND showcase's in a class of its own...awesome, awesome work...congrats on a suberb finish.
Doodlibop (Apr 20, 2004)
wowzer kablowzerz! lovely job! I want to be as good as you someday! ^.^
Are they dating?
Gigandas (Apr 20, 2004)
Doodlibop-I doubt that they'd be dating now with the distance between the two of them at the moment.
fleeting_memory (Apr 20, 2004)
I love your work I love you-you are amazing
BlackLaertes (Apr 21, 2004)
This is just too beautiful! Man, if I could be half as good as you I'd be made ^^;;
EverDream (Apr 21, 2004)
*pokes* who dat? Lovely image...*dies* I could never get realism that good! You shall have twenty cookies for this! :D
Xodiak (Apr 26, 2004)
The girl looks sexy... Xod likes black girls... Mmmm... Oh, the drawing is amazingly fantastic! You are a realism master, Giant! >:)
LovelyLori (May 9, 2004)
more more Giggy...! have you been afraid you can't top this masterpiece? :)
Gigandas (May 10, 2004)
Nah^^;....I'm still a rookie in the realism department so I've got a ways to go.I've only drawn realism on this site and no where else.....well, at least not people^^;.Actually, I do have drawings in the works right now though.Those would include DBA's portrait and a self portrait.I'll post them as soon as I feel some satisfaction for either of them...
Kasha (May 10, 2004)
ohh yay! a self portrait! ...I can't wait. >:D
KiwiKitsune (May 12, 2004)
O___O'' WOAW... that's awesome... that... dah... aaaahhh!! THAT LOOKS SO REAL... like... a photograph...
LovelyLori (May 12, 2004)
rookie fat arse... puhleease...
Gigandas (May 13, 2004)
L.Lori-Well....I am.........I mean I don't take art classes so it's not like I was ever forced to do it anyways....^^;
hoopstarchick10 (Aug 10, 2004)
Woah.. The girl in the picture's my sister and it looks just like her. It's crazy. Great Job.
spootdemon (Aug 18, 2004)
Your talent amazes me O_O
Mipunai (Aug 18, 2004)
Wow, I really like this, looks very realistic n_n
Ty854 (Aug 19, 2004)
Goatlord (Oct 10, 2004)
This is just incredible. I think the girl is the most impressive part of the picture; black people (I'm assuming she is) tend to have highly reflective skin, making for some very dramatic shading. I think what I love about this the most is that while it looks photo-realistic, it still has a very definite painted feel to it.
bakuraiscool (Dec 11, 2004)
thats real!!! it has to be, i mean...
SlimShady97 (Dec 30, 2004)
They look like such a lifelike couple. Just look at their happy, content expressions and that could've fooled me for a photo any day of the week!
Miss_DJ (Apr 24, 2005)
there should be a name much finer than MASTER to define your skill....incredible and awesome!!
Matsuni (Mar 25, 2007)
O___O Simply amazing...I bow to you XD
MelissaMissy (Aug 29, 2007)
This is by far the best I've seen!! Awesome!
HanSyd (Jun 9, 2008)
Amazing! The shading is breathtaking!
PajamaKat (Jun 12, 2008)
This is so good it looks like a photograph. Job well done ! :DDDDDD
