Would this be considered hyper-realistic?

this is more of a blend between painterly and realistic, but it is leaning toward the realistic side =)

This isn't real. It was never real. All you're doing is spamming the comments section. It says that you're new here so I understand why you're doing this, but please stop, none of the chain-comments have any effect besides annoying other users v_v

Maybe a bit overdone on the hand.   The rest look great though.

i think digital artists got a whole lot better when they started using the versatility of their medium to add pops of realism and believability into their fictional worlds and scenes, reality and subsurface scattering is pretty
