    Less than a week to go before the Chinese New Year (Year of the Pig), so I got to hurry up. Haven't turned on the compressor yet, still sketching... file-138b.jpg

    Reflecting on the current status, I have a creepy feeling of uncanny valley... something does not look right... it still looks more like a painting than a picture. Why is that? Any thoughts or tips from the masters in this forum are most welcome!

    well im no master. However.

    Not seeing a reference i cannot give all the answers, to paint realism you either need a reference, or enough practice with a subject to be second nature.

    However the first thing i notice, the shading on the outer edge of the ear, it even with a dark edge would blend a little better, and being a focal point needs the most detail.

    A few details in key areas will do much to create that more realistic look you seek. I rarely paint photo realism, however there is enough detail and crispness in the focal areas to make many believe its photo realistic .

    There is nothing "wrong" here you just are not finished

    Now around 8 hours in. Been struggling with this one, and spent a lot of time on the negative white space (eliminating the overspray). Also, I miscalculated the dimensions and had to twist the body of the pig upwards or it wouldn’t fit into the painting. 62C12F01-2077-43D2-B49D-A66529E07675.jpeg

    I love the way it came out, with the body twisting up :) Makes it have a whole other effect on atmosphere :cool:
    Looks amazing :p
