A category doesn't really help much--it just displays what the artist selected as it.
I wasn't trying to accuse you of faking a drawing in a bad way! XD I guess my comment wasn't as joking as it intended to be. What I was trying to get across is that your drawings are so realistic/life like that it's hard to tell the difference between a drawing and an actual photo (which I do applaud you for; all those years of practice/work have paid off).
Hehe well, I always choose the right category for right type of art, at least I hope so. Yesterday it was April Fool's day so they opened up this special category for kitties to free Fella And if you haven't seen the kitty photo I uploaded the day before I guess it was even harder for you to be sure what is what.
I overreacted a bit, but I hate when people even try to imply I'm passing something as something else without a proof (which I never do) because it comes as an insult for all the hard work and everything.
The actual problem that I simply cannot believe how "blind" people can be and for example call a mediocre drawing photo realistic or say they mistaken it for a photo etc. or in this case how can anyone think this deviation in particular could be a drawing. It's clear as day it's a photo, at least to me and not because it's mine. I don't know, but very few hyper realists, photo realism artists on this site can fool me in the beginning when seeing their work because they're brilliant and huge size works re-sized to small dA version boost "it looks like a photo" effect.
Maybe only couple of my works look photorealistc to me, but only from a thumb. I consider them just realistic and very easy tell they're drawings, especially because my style, so I don't really get how people can think my drawings look like photos, although I've learned it seems people have different "standards" for deciding something looks like a photo to them, most have too low standards if you ask me.
They had special categories? I should have joined the fun! D:::
Hyper realism is difficult to achieve--however, most of your drawings are starting to border the line of realism and hyper realism. The artist is their own greatest criticizer, so while you may believe your art is only 'realism', it could very well be hyper realism. The few works you think look photorealistic to you look photorealistic to you because (and I'm just speculating) you're more proud of the results/hard work you put into it than some of the other works. (This is just me guessing, but I've had a feeling similar to this with some of my artwork)
