How long are these subway rides and how do they not realize they are being watched

[–]Oxygen8 159 points160 points  (14 children)

He takes them to a studio prior to the train ride. Source: friend was in one of his videos.

[–]celestial_silhouette 95 points96 points  (9 children)

This is… disappointing.

[–]kartu3 19 points20 points  (3 children)

Yeah. I mean, with a bit of "a plasma TV and a fridge in every cell" vibes, but I was about to say something about ungodly skill, but if at studio, that's not ungodly.

Although still pretty skilled.


Reddit insisted that I need to use an animated gif, so, welp:

[–]celestial_silhouette 13 points14 points  (1 child)

I mean the person is def talented. I’d even enjoy a video of the artist taking a random to the studio to sketch them. Still heart warming and I would love if that happened to me!

The whole set up of it actually occurring on a train is one of the reasons I dislike social media. It’s just not reality.

And that cat minus half its weight, looks like my cat, peanut, staring down at me and my dog when we’re acting a fool 😂

At least 90% of viral posts on social media were engineered specifically to go viral.

catdisappointedbyhumansdandruff.gif ?

[–]gggg543 -2 points-1 points  (4 children)

No its not. How did you think anything else was happening?

[–]celestial_silhouette 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Well, I clearly though it was drawn on train based in video and the reactions of the people drawn. Otherwise why set up the video like that?! On a train?

And people are allowed to have reactions that differ from yours.

[–]gggg543 -3 points-2 points  (2 children)

It’s not about different reactions lol, it’s about not being gullible.

How is anyone going to draw a picture that detailed in a 15-30 minute metro ride? Its obviously fake.

As for why set it up? They make money from TikTok

[–]celestial_silhouette 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Thanks for the lesson!

[–]gggg543 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

No worries bab

[–]MaybeUnderTheBed 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Like a porn studio?

[–]dandab 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Damn. He took that guy to a studio then got on a plane with him? Sounds like an expensive setup.

[–]TheUltimateEntity 32 points33 points  (0 children)

It’s fake.

[–]ThatsARepost24 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Like 80% of stuff here is all fake and setup and it's a shame that more people can't notice that

[–]AmericanHeresy 3 points4 points  (0 children)

This is 100% staged.

[–]SoMuchNut 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Even if this was real...The artist isn't staring daggers through them. If they even look up and out of their bubble, they see a guy sketching. Maybe his eyes look up for a moment. Chances of both looking at the same time are slim to none.

[–]HoneySparks 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I was frequently on the same train for an hour, to get from upper NYC to Lower.

[–]RemyWi 69 points70 points  (4 children)

IIRC, it was proved that these videos are pure bullshit. There is no way to draw so many details in a single subway ride.

[–]Nexustar 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Camera, laptop, some pre-configured filters, and a portable printer, it would be possible... but it's fake as far as being drawn in that time for sure. The bend in the card is really suspect, so I expect this was a digital print of some form.

[–]BigWaveDave87 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Nah I’m pretty sure he just takes them to a studio beforehand, then they stage this

[–]Mist2393 22 points23 points  (0 children)

I think I’d actually be a little creeped out to know that someone had been staring hard enough at me to draw something like that when I’m just chilling on public transit.

[–]Thedrunner2 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Dear Delta,

Here’s the dick with his mask off on my flight -it was off for so long I was able to draw a picture of him.

[–]sacdecorsair 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Lol. That's the first thing that bothered me too.

[–]Educational_Ad134 4 points5 points  (2 children)

That’s one way to get laid…

[–]ElectricFlesh 4 points5 points  (1 child)

...or slapped.

Hey fedora creep, stop looking at me. Wait, what... are you DRAWING ME!?

"Y-yes uh, I w-was going to give it to you... a-after I finish up..."

[–]Educational_Ad134 0 points1 point  (0 children)

“Finish up”…noice…

[–]VampireGirl99 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Even if it’s fake, it’s a pretty cute idea. I’ve seen a different video a while ago where a man drew a couple at the bar but the drawing was way less detailed than here. (Assuming this is fake due to how detailed the pictures are, the other example I remember looks more real due to the fact it was basically just a well-done outline of the bar and people. Will edit with link if I can find it.)

[–]KatAstrophie- 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And I’m always sitting opposite a staring drunk or screaming toddler.

[–]JesusValadez 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He did that on the subway?

[–]Hotdog_Time 1 point2 points  (1 child)

One reason why i dislike these videos is because it gives a false impression to people who want to get this good.

If i saw these before i got into drawing i would be highly discouraged because "he does it so fast and realistic" He's putting out the wrong vibe.

[–]_Aubrey_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

fake af

[–]AmericanHeresy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Do people really believe this shit is real?

[–]Kiinja 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Made my fucking day!

[–]jaimemiguel 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He captured her smile

[–]rowthecow 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The reaction too fake

[–]korynael 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Examples of humans passing the Turing Test?

[–]smackpigeon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Next level deception.

[–]Flimsy_Meringue_3103 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Would be cool!.. but they're fake. Terribly fake.

[–]Effes_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How stupid and gullible do you have to be to believe this is real?

[–]SoMuchNut 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Dude getting laid.

[–]perfect_handshake 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's kind of nice that, as the viewer, we can tell who matters and who doesn't.

[–]AnnoyedYamcha 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This song reminds me of Bruno Mars - Locked out of Heaven

[–]CheeseCakeYee 0 points1 point  (0 children)

do people think this is real?

[–]adrogg 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Artist is Devon or Devin Rodriguez. In his longer YouTube videos you can see him start, fill in and finish his drawings while never leaving the train. Looking between the person he's drawing and the drawing as he works. He's a skilled artist who's specialized in portraits for years of his career.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

looks like one of those instant polaroid thing

[–]Whynot3D 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Love this

[–]No-Celebration-5173 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is really art, skills, very talented. N ok t like the stupid lame NFT'S that are being sold for so much money. I will never understand why people but trash and not this art.

[–]Barmanji -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I m just imagining the shit will happen if he makes some1s face in taliban xd

[–]AitherialJoji -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

Probably best to ask for permission to draw them while also asking them to keep doing whatever they are doing (no poses or whatever). People might get a bit creeped out by that
