just came to your gallery from the tutorial on this image... and again, WOW! and I am so sorry that some ppl have seen fit to disbelieve you just because this image is amazing!

This is enough bacon_midget, if u have some constructive comment to make by all means go for it, if not mind your own business, if u didnt notice this is an art site so try to behave like u understand this. Mark_uk - the joke is on u since u're unable to distinguish a true artwork from a fake. I only hope that after u put so much work into something u get comments telling u your work is fake.

Yep! I've had doubts about it. I've visited the link with the photo - I've visited addys gallery - and now i for me i can say: I believe it. I believe, that it is a truly poserwork (i think with a very lot of postwork). Therefore i will Vote for this excellent piece of artwork.

I must say, very well done. Love to see the other female models done to this caliber.

Perhaps a lot of the disbelief could have been avoided by giving credit to the artist/merchant who created the base Poser character when it was first uploaded. Fantastic postwork artistry indeed!

I don't think that I've ever seen any of your images before. Frankly, I am in awe! This is so damn amazing! ~Meli

I guess there are so many unblelievers because it's hard to grasp that such a wonderful spot-on copy of a photo could have been done in Poser. I have no reason to doubt your word, though. So bravo for a fantastic re-creation! V

Looks great to me. BTW - envy can cause people to say strange things......5 gold stars. Plus more.

Fantastic, but I had to see the step by step to believe it;

REPEATED FROM MY STEP BY STEP COMMENT You know I haven't posted a comment in an age now...but in this case I feel I must. I teach art...as it is what I love...and even though I myself am not NEAR this good...I do have an eye for it. Anyone who wants to sit and judge and say it wasn't painted...feel free to IM me and I will prove it is. I don't know either of these people so I have no reason to lie...but to the trained eye you can actually SEE the strokes. The hair was SEAMLESSLY painted but it WAS painted...the mouth also...or atleast the fine detail...all of it is INCREDIBLY detailed and EXCELLENT and PERFECT in technique. Just because your like me and can't do this...DOES not mean she didn't! Trust me I sat here and compared it and there are many many differences between the photo and this...all minute and easy to miss unless you give yourself a headache studying it LOL...non of which could possibly be from an overlay of any sort.....as I said...I will be happy TO SHOW all the strokes...changes in pressure...and differences to anyone in doubt. It is a shame that petty jealousy and envy always rare their heads in this gallery and ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!! This is masterfully done...and intelligently done...just an INCREDIBLE JOB on it!!!!! And I agree....a tutorial would be lovely :O) Even teachers can use some help LOL :O) EXCELLENT!!!!!!!! VOTE :O)

Once in a great while, someone with extraordinary talent appears, and it's always a joy to see what can be created. Thank you for sharing this image, and inspiring us to try just a bit harder. What hasn't been said, is that you've captured not only Chris's appearance, but conveyed your feelings in this portrait. Bravo!

Don't worry, there are so many that don't believe, but they are just jealous, so take it as a compliment. Because you deserve all the praise that you get!!!

wow, this is truely amazing.. i don't know what to say. magnificent work. looks absolutely real, colors and light are fantastic.. my vote.
mushypea () 10:31AM | Sat, 30 October 2004
I'm sorry, but in my opinion its a photo, the eyes are too perfect, you cant get eyes like that with a poser character.
rhiafaery () 10:38AM | Sat, 30 October 2004
Wow...this is...UTTERLY fascinating. I could only hope and dream to ever be this good. And it is kind of sad that people autmatically think this is not your hard labor of love simply because they themselves could not see their way to creating it. Thank you so much for sharing. :)

If you put this and the photograph side by side they are identical apart from a slight angle change. (so she took 2 photos) Even the background is identical. Study the hair - identical apart from a bit of smoothing on this one. This is a fake - for whatever reason. It is NOT a poser render. I have looked at the step by step. Now tell me who here creates screenshots of their work as they're doing it? It IS step by step but a reversal of this fake to a poser render to make fools of everyone here.
annemarie2 () 12:28PM | Sat, 30 October 2004
You can so get eyes that perfect in poser-- ever use one of Vali's products?? She ALWAYS has the best realistic eyes in her packages. Addy has provided a step by step, and I even save my layers as I am going through my postwork in ps7- that way if I screw up I have something to revert back too, so many people do it Nice to see that some that are critising have no art in their gallery, instead of bashing people personally they should try and contribute something more substantial. Some people on here really need to grow up.

I am not an artist full time, all I can see is a beautiful portrait, The name calling and mud slinging isnt needed here. I also do not know this artist, but I send you my congrats on a job well done! The image is wonderful!
venerella () 5:02PM | Sat, 30 October 2004
My comment is not here? What a good news! So I can do it another time hoping will help to stay in the 1st position of the hot 20... truly hoping each one will be able to see this outstanding work!
Primal () 10:59PM | Sat, 30 October 2004
