In practice, the advent of photography exchanged the need for drawings and paintings, as cameras can do the better job much quicker. However, the artistic part still remains alive, and many people appreciate the amount of skill and time it takes to actually make a photorealistic drawing. And to some extent, artists like Choi, who goes by the name of daol_pater on Instagram, still manage to compete with the cameras and even outdo them in terms of how realistic the image feels, as sometimes the digital drawings might even exceed the quality of a photo and border on the lifelike. Even though he can’t technically be called a traditional artist because he makes them on a computer, he still can be considered a true artist nonetheless. But let’s not let words get in the way of things that are best shown, not described. Check out the fantastic sketches by the fantastically skilled artist.
