  8. Kevin McKidd? Really? The only thing they have in common is red hair. McKidd is hot as hell and the Van Gogh photo is kinda creepy, albeit well done...

  9. It's not a "photo". It's hyper-realistic digital painting.

    So technically, he just changed the style of the painting.

  11. Well, he didn't "convert" anything. With the masking tape holding the blue sheet of paper behind the guy, it pretty much looks like a photo of someone who looked familiar to the original painting - a photo was taken and then simply put into a Photopshop layer mask. He then erased the painting to reveal the photo. Nothing extraordinary here, except finding a lookalike.
