    Hi Matt. I am conflicted between photorealism and painterly realism. Photorealism like Elicia Donze is very seductive for sure, but as soon as my drawing starts to look like the photo I get a strong urge to deviate and make it not so perfect in fear that it would look just like the photo. This makes it painterly in a way that I don’t like because in my mind, I hate being painterly, but I feel the need to stand out. I also want it to look just like the photo and also don’t want it to look like it. All I know is that my style is realism, and I want to transition from unintentional semi-realism to actual realism. Is there any way that I could cure this conflict?



    Hi Arjun,

    I talked to your question in both your critique and in the podcast.

    Hope all is well,
