  1. Wow this is really amazing! Great collection of art for inspiration.

  2. Very Good Ideas ,Thanks

  3. This is an amazing collection of examples.

    Tried this type of thing a few times but can never seem to get it to look any good.

    Nice work

  4. Very creative and innovative collection

  5. Adie: it never looks any good in reality because these are all produced with photoshop. They are not real photos. 1 source photo,.. 1 (largely traced I’d say)illustration and another photo of man holding it on “green screen”… stitch it all together,.. line it up and post post post.
    It’s nice, clever and well executed,.. but totally disingenuous.

  6. Amazing work of Ben Heine !

  7. I love the photographs. Not much into drawing so can’t comment 😉
    Don’t know how hard/easy it is but looks great.
