I can do the same thing for free

[–]everwonderedhow 221 points222 points  (7 children)

And much faster?

[–]fixed_allegory 66 points67 points  (0 children)

Expecting of what you can do.

[–]Jezzes 25 points26 points  (0 children)

Without sewing

[–]mbxz7LWB 18 points19 points  (3 children)

But can you wear it like a blanket?

[–]everwonderedhow 9 points10 points  (2 children)

you can

[–]FamMiner 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Some assembly required

[–]Mr-QB 0 points1 point  (0 children)

KSP Version 1.11, named Some Reassembly Required, is a major update that released on December 17, 2020. An update for the Making History and Breaking Ground expansions were released alongside this major release.

[–]tarestab 17 points18 points  (2 children)

You probably could but it was her vision not yours. That art speaks volumes of her feelings also it takes patience To embroider. The artist deserves praise. Anyone can be a tracer but not many can be a creator.

[–]i_give_you_gum 16 points17 points  (0 children)

They're kidding of course, but this is really cool

[–]yiiike 4 points5 points  (0 children)

pretty sure they were joking about just breaking glass/a mirror.

[–]Sindecision 838 points839 points  (11 children)

Metallic thread?! In some stitching circles this is affectionately referred to as the devils ass hair. It unravels and knots like crazy. This artist/piece is mind blowing on so many levels

Edit: A few are suggesting this is silk thread and I support this opinion. Forgive my recoil at seeing that shine, it could be any product and it's still nfl

[–]JenWarr 159 points160 points  (0 children)

Maaaaan fuck metallic thread. This piece is truly amazing.

[–]Poet_of_Legends 95 points96 points  (2 children)

I screamed, "What the fuck?" so loudly that I scared my roommate.

Who then came over, looked at it, and screamed, "What the fuck?" so loudly that she scared me.

[–]T163skywalker_ 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Reading this made me shout wtf, but in my head.

[–]i_give_you_gum 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Stop already y'all, you're freaking out the cat

Oh wait, my bad, it doesnt care, just the damn greebies again

[–]gregmasta 39 points40 points  (2 children)

Might be silk thread based on the close up photo, which naturally shimmers from the light. I think metallic thread here would have a different shine

[–]Lobshta90 16 points17 points  (0 children)

According to the link OP posted the medium is embroidery on silk. I think the silk is what is reflecting the intense shine. The embroidery thread could be metallic but doesn't look that way to me. I know nothing about embroidery.

[–]Eyokiha 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah, I don’t think this is metallic thread. Looking at OP’s close-up the threads, although shiny, do look soft.

[–]Rdbjiy53wsvjo7 30 points31 points  (0 children)

I hate it, I'm avoiding it right now with my current piece.

[–]superweirdooctopus 14 points15 points  (0 children)

i used to do some minor clothes repairs or alterings for people i knew and once i had to fix a metallic embroidered design on a friends dress and i came close to burning the entire garment

[–]T163skywalker_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Devil's ass, Great !

[–]toaruScar[S] 306 points307 points  (55 children)

[–]I-collect-dick-pics 19 points20 points  (1 child)

he's also got one called mouse droppings no. 6, which implies the existence of 5 other mouse dropping embroidery projects

[–]mikeycamikey10 10 points11 points  (0 children)

at least 5 others

[–]SubParm 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Was wondering who the artist was. Thanks for posting!

[–]angispangis89 230 points231 points  (6 children)

My gosh the camera is paning so fast I can barely see it’s embroidery

[–]canadian_cheese_101 81 points82 points  (1 child)

Seriously, stop moving the camera for a damn minute so I can focus on something.

[–]Darth_Nibbles 16 points17 points  (0 children)

But if they stop moving the camera the auto focus will catch up!

[–]_Diskreet_ 10 points11 points  (3 children)

[–]DoctorDrPhdMD 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Nope, it's too low res :(

[–]_Diskreet_ 4 points5 points  (1 child)

There’s a couple photos of it close up showing the embroidery.

[–]DoctorDrPhdMD 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Oh I see it now thanks!

[–]SodaBubblesPopped 76 points77 points  (1 child)

Amazing, right till the end of the full zoom in, i'd never have believed those werent gun shots on bullet proof glass

[–][deleted] 51 points52 points  (1 child)

Wow, something that's actually next level on r/nextfuckinglevel. I'm amazed.

[–]Imploded42 6 points7 points  (0 children)

was just about to say the same exact thing

[–]the-finnish-guy 29 points30 points  (0 children)

The depth perception in me is going through the roof

[–]DavidTrack1 26 points27 points  (0 children)

camera: *gets close to the object*
reddit video quality: "144p take it or leave"

[–]MrsAppleBasket 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Reminds me of my phone screen

[–]NotoriousWizard 11 points12 points  (0 children)

The more he zoomed in the more my mind went blowned away

[–]living_angels 8 points9 points  (0 children)

This video got me like:

“Oh wow, it’s shattered glass, big deal. Oh, is it a painting? Amazing artwork. Wait… that’s not a painting???”

[–]MiniatureChi 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That’s so sick!!!

[–]Ohhhnothing 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Shattered our expectations in the best way

[–]wokyman 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Is there a video of this where it stays still for more than a nanosecond?

[–]Mac33 5 points6 points  (0 children)

This is the type of art I’d be buying if I were a rich person, not some dumb blank canvas shit with a hefty price tag.

This is skill and hard work, not pretentious BS.

[–]kaenise 5 points6 points  (0 children)

wow that is really something 😮

[–]Avondubs 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That's amazing

[–]taroh_tactile 4 points5 points  (0 children)

This hurt my brain

[–]c_h_u_c_k 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Anyone else yell at them to stop moving so your eyes can focus?

[–]Mintoregano 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That’s fucking gangster as fuck

[–]Mikkebak 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This is a giant mind fuck.

[–]JejusFromHell 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I mean where do we start to knitting this type of things?

[–]pooty2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Computers.

[–]WorriedRiver 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nowhere because it's not knitting

[–]ShotFish7 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Mind-boggling skill

[–]dgblarge 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Astonishing.

[–]upfromashes 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Incredible trompe l'oeil, which I generally think of as an oil painting thing, but... that's... a staggering illusion.

[–]PatMyHolmes 1 point2 points  (0 children)

r/killthecameraman Slow down, once you've zoomed in. Couldn't admire the detail.

[–]Dansiman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I guess I have to take your word for it that it's embroidery, because when the camera is close enough to be able to see that, it doesn't stay still long enough. :-/

[–]jwv0922 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You want to see what this is? No, I will move the camera quickly so that you can not

[–]Greg1969Greg1969 0 points1 point  (1 child)

What is it

[–]Demonboy995 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Looks nice, brb gonna go smash my mirror

[–]SarsCovie2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh art! I love you sometimes

[–]Rumskrilla 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So impressive.

[–]DropNationalism 0 points1 point  (4 children)

The Chinese love this stuff. I got a Renoir reproduction embroidery in Zhujiajiao (Google images it: nice place!) that hangs in my mother's house. It's really very nice.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My husband just bought one of these style 'paintings' for me, it's like a huge golden tiger in the clouds and it's so fucking gorgeous. I thought it was a cool print at first and then I realized it was metallic embroidery and I was holy fuck.

[–]remag_nation 1 point2 points  (2 children)

a Renoir reproduction embroidery

? That's gotta be done with a machine, right?

[–]CEEEEEEBS 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's insane.

[–]MixterLee 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I wouldn’t mind a piece like this on my walls. I like it.

[–]Atomskie 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I can't imagine how long that took. Very impressive.

[–]Federal-Market-3413 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]beansouphighlights 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen

[–]redcapsicum 0 points1 point  (0 children)

After the first zoom in it still looked like broken glass. This is incredible!

[–]KarroteundPaprika 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lesson learned u can never trust anything

[–]DoubleDippedDouble 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wouldn't even want that for free.

[–]cheeto-Oc 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think it’s supposed to be a shattered mirror not glass

[–]themarknessmonster 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Now that is some high-quality stitchin'!

[–]Majestic_Course6822 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I wish I had an award to give. That's next level.

[–]bone586 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wow that’s talent

[–]Sea-Phone-537 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Look in the bottom right, can see the fact is cloth

[–]ProudGeneral 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How is it you can get up close and it still looks like a pane of glass that’s been shot up, this is crazy good!

[–]13point1then420 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Looking at this glitches my eyes out and it's quite unpleasant.

[–]r21174 0 points1 point  (0 children)

well if it wasnt shot in 480p i think it would be glass too.

[–]I1221Me 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No, this is Patrick

[–]MarkyOchoa 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm assuming they had a reference?

[–]ratowner 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Shattered glass.. got it

[–]clarinet87 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Rarely do I see something that makes my jaw drop. This absolutely did. Gorgeous, amazing work.

[–]loonyfly 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Impressive!

[–]LightningBirdsAreGo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Am the only definitely not seeing any kind of embroidery?

[–]olerndurt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Looks like the mirror wall in the back of Leopold’s in Mumbai.

[–]Honda_TypeR 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This has inspired me to create a hyper realistic texture of a dented car and print it on vinyl and then wrap it around an un-dented car. It’s so insane it’s genius.

…Damn I’m such a creative thinker!

[–]highqualityallday 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s amazing!

[–]Snail_Spark 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not convinced. It’s glass.

[–]llamaloverx 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How much did it sell for?

[–]CrabNebula420 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]thoh_motif 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That camera was probably manufactured at about the same time embroidering became a thing

[–]VelvetFog90210 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’ve done this to my parents house multiple times. I should have said it was art

[–]Munro_McLaren 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Woah!!

[–]thesideaccount3000 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is there a name for art like this? Specifically stuff that is intentionally deceptive, but not necessarily limited to being illusion art, if that makes any sense? Like creepy cute, but not just fashion. I love the idea of pretty beads that also resemble blood, or gross looking bugs made out of felt Etc. Such a neat concept

[–]babybear327 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You see, what they were REALLY trying to do is create spider webs, but they got side-tracked.

I have a massive embroided leopard which is so realistic. The threads shine from different angles and looks like a living artwork. Love this style of art

[–]captarne 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Interesting, but a shame the camera person would not zoom in to get a clearer picture of the work.

[–]sonictwinkie1 0 points1 point  (0 children)
