These incredibly photorealistic self-portraits are the work of Spanish painter Eloy Morales. Eloy is one of the best hyperrealistic painters in the world, not only are his paintings photographic in quality but they possess a kind of life to them. Tricking the viewer into thinking they are actually looking at photographs.

lightchasing said: Man I am so confused by this. Those things are horrifying. And can you imagine the medical problems they probably have/will develop??
No kidding. Look at these chests and elbows!
And this is a desirable trait how?? I shudder to think of the gait this turned-out elbow conformation imparts. I don’t imagine these dogs could ever win a fight, so I guess their only purpose is to look macho and bolster someone’s sense of masculinity?
lightchasing said: I saw these in a magazine when I was browsing a while back and nearly screeched. What in the flip is going on with pit bulls…?
I’m not fond of the landrace anyway (unpopular opinion around these parts, that and the fact that I do not consider it a breed), but this is a seriously deformed looking dog. The interesting thing is that these “american bullies” aren’t a recognized breed in any registry, so the kennel club-driven conformation shows aren’t really a thing… so I would think there’s not a huge incentive to breed an extreme type?
Unless these people run their own fucked up conformation shows where looking like a badly-drawn reptile is a good thing. Upon browsing some kennel sites, these dogs have stud fees of a few grand!! Why??
What the fuck is that thing??
