You may have heard of artists turning photos into paintings, but this artist turned a painting into a photograph!
Michael Zhang interviewed Tadao Cern on the process, and this is what he said:
First of all, I needed a model with red hair. Than we the help of a stylist we recreated the outfit. And then after basic composition shot I took a lot of detail shots which where incorporated in the main image. It was a lot of cloning, stretching, drawing, pushing, lifting. It was almost as painting a new image looking at the reference and original painting standing next to me.
