Do you even understand the words you say?... Lack of understanding you got there or just jealous of not being capable to do things like that.

Come on, all the author had to do was using pen and imitate an original picture's colours and composition, things that someone else had to think through.

Even though it's painted by the example of a photo, you can say that photo was used as reference. How in other way you would paint a portret or something from the view?

Oh I don't know... by using your own imagination or something?
I do not mean it is bad to make a copy. All I want to say is that it is just a copy. Well made but still a copy.

How you can say that it's a copy... For example if you would like to paint Eiffel Tower exactly how it is right know? With all the people you see around it? And what if you havent finished your painting, but still want to continue it as it was? You can take a photo and carry it to your home, to continue or wait for another day, but people wont be the same around that tower.

Another situation: model cant wait all day long when you will finish a paiting. You take a photo of her and work with this reference instead of paiting from your eyes view.

I think it is a totally different thing when it is you who take a picture of something because of the time which is running and later you use y o u r picture to finish the job. Then all the concept is yours, the way you arrange objects, the mood and the like are yours, they come from your head, it is your concept. The difference, which as I can see is difficult for you to understand, is w h o is responsible for all artistic process: setting a composition, colors... but I'm afraid I keep repeating myself. And you're missing the point. I truly believe you can not treat this computer-hand-made copy as a something more. All I see here is a time which was spent to create a copy of something. The inspiration is unequivocal, all the autor put into this picece of work is an effort to make it the same like an original picture. All important things which make this picture so nice to watch are not his but the person who took the shot.

That's like saying, "Yeah, it's a good picture, but seeing it in real life is still better."

By your logic, a picture is just copy of real life. Does that make it not as good?

No, it is not my logic and I would not say that seeing something in a real life is better, not in this case.
The author of the photo set the whole scene. He arranged all factors to make the picture, to freeze the moment. And yes, it is very nice moment, worth of preserving. This is one of the most important reason why people take pictures, is it not? It is not a copy of a real life. It is one moment which will last forever. You need some skill to chose this moment.

And the drawing? Well... it is just a copy of someone's intellectual and emotional work. Different technique but still a copy. When done well, will be just a perfect copy. Anyway - still a copy. Nothing more than the arduous work.

I understand your point, and agree in part, the work is great, i think itīs an excelent exercise, but yes, its a reproduction, but i recognize AntarcticSpring work, he has a great gallery of his own inspiration I thing.
Many artist reproduce photos to improve his skills.

Haha, seriously? Anyone can press a button on a device at different angles and with different lenses. Not everyone is capable of producing anything even close to this. Not even 1 in 10.

Haha, seriously.
Someone actually DID press a button and this is more then just making one move with your finger. The whole conceptual process, the light, colours and a composition - this is all the author had to think about before taking a shot.
Here is just a hand-made copy. Impressive because of the amount of time someone had to spent on it.
