But my today’s story is dedicated to the artist, whose stunning paintings are super realistic.

When you look for the first time at the works of Damian Loeb, you may think that these are photos, beautiful and of good quality, but nevertheless photos. And you will be wrong. Damian Loeb is a self-taught artist, who creates amazing hyperrealistic oil paintings. The last ones demonstrate people the incredibly detailed landscapes on Earth, various cloud formations and the vastness of the cosmos with its planets, stars and other celestial objects. But how does Damian recreate such realistic landscapes and celestial bodies on his paintings? To do it, the American-based artist uses a high-tech gadgetry and has to take lots of photos. Although it may seem strange, but Damian paints not exactly what he previously photographed. He spent many months in his studio, working with these photos, changing the contrast light, exposure, shadow or other things on them. When this stage of work is finished, he starts creating his oil paintings, supplementing them with some additional photos from the well-known Hubble Space Telescope.

The main goal of the painter is an astronomical accuracy and he really achieves it, spending many months replicating the smallest patterns among the stars as well as checking and rechecking all the photos. You may only look at one of his latest paintings series – “(Sol).d”- to make sure in it. All extraterrestrial landscapes as well as earth-bound views depicted on the paintings of this series look incredibly realistic and reliable. When you look at “Cygnus” or “The Great Rift” canvasses, you have a strong feeling that you see them in a telescope. The same feeling of hyperrealism follows you when you draw your attention to “Sol”, “Fulwell” or “Windsor” paintings.

As for me, it’s quite hard to paint such landscapes and celestial bodies in detail and make people believe that they look at not good photos, but super realistic canvasses. And what do you think?
More awesome paintings of Damian Loeb are available on his official site. Enjoy!

This experienced and multi-talented master specializes in engraving different gun stocks, attache cases, fireplace mantles, pistol grips and many other things. Being a taxidermist in the past, Joe has learned to represent perfectly various animals, that’s why all his carvings with animals are so realistic.

In general, the master prefers recreating different birds, animals and nature on his works. When you see a bear, a deer, a wolf or birds skillfully carved on the gun stocks, you are gripped with an admiration, because the animals look like alive and you can see the smallest details of their faces and bodies. Thanks to such amazing engraving, such guns or rifles turn from the simple weapon into incredibly beautiful decorative things. But the master of engraving doesn’t stop repeating to people not to be afraid of using such guns to hunt, because one day they may become a good source of interesting stories for their grandkids.

But, as I have mentioned previously, Joe Cummings also engraves fireplace mantles and attache briefcases. The last ones are completely unique not only because of high-quality wood, but also due to perfectly carved animals, trees, leaves and mountains. Nevertheless, my favorite engraving works of Joe are those depicted on fireplace mantles. They are so detailed and stunning that you are able to imagine the whole story or even to fancy that you are right there. And it has become possible only thanks to the incredibly mastery of Cummings.
