Georgian Artist Creates Hyper-Realistic Portraits, And Here Are 15 Of His Newest Works
Two years ago, we talked about Georgian artist Irakli Nadar who creates incredible digital paintings that are extremely realistic. Today, we want to showcase the newest digital artworks of this talented artist.
Unlike many artists who bet on playfulness and even surrealism, Irakli prefers to perfect himself in hyper-realism techniques that bring his art to the most amazing optics. The use of textures, lights, and shadows make his digital art an amazing vista that deserves full attention.
My main goal is to be less dependent on reference but also to maintain my personal style and the realistic drawings that go along with it. I like to experiment with different styles and drawing ideas, but I don't see myself changing since I believe that an artist should do whatever he or she is good at. [...] I've spent years studying the human face and portrait drawings, and it would be careless to abandon all of that on a whim - says the artist (h/t: voxgroovy.is).

The realist artist does not use "living models," he uses photographs as a basis and likes to render the finest details by trying in some of her works to faithfully replicate what he sees.
