For those in the audience craving a good dose of hyper-realism mixed with just a touch of the surreal, Untitled by ~ja5on certainly provides an adequate, awe-inspiring fix. ( Suggested by leajacques and Featured by snowmask )

I am just blown away by all the work in your gallery. How do you achieve such smooth, perfect curves? Do you use rulers/guides/stencils? Just really curious. Thanks!

I use a compass for circles and then a lot of layers of paint to get nice clean lines and blurs.

Very cool. And just one other question...How long have you been doing photoreal paintings?
Reply
:iconja5on:
ja5on Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
I consider them more hyperreal. I just don't like all the dogma associated with the term "photorealism". I've always been into realism. I started painting seriously in 1995, while in college for Illustration & Design.

I just love the idea, of the Escher's book reflection... the smooth idea of one of his drawings with this sphere... love it and spread it... keep up the good work!
(I believe that the man on the reflection is you doing, this painting :aww:)

how do you get rid of the camera reflection? This is a 3D render or post edited to remove the camera?
