ok that is cool
That was awesome
That doesn’t look difficult. I bet I could do it on the fifth try. Super cool though.
Jackson Galaxie also speed paints
He also sings the national anthem while doing it
That camera person sucks.
Too long didn't watch!
This guy did embiid and Simmons for the halftime show of the season opener for the 76ers... it was incredible
He turns it upside down
the best part is he is singing the national anthem while doing this.
I was honestly expecting dickbutt. This site has ruined me.
Most of it was already there when it was turned over, he just added a few bits
Don't worry Imgur servers are MAKING me wait for it....
Now draw 6800 body bags with American flag on them
Ok, that was awesome
Is this like a surprise painting he needs to finish?
Watched with my phone turned upside down.
OK, that was unexpected!
Why is he in such a hurry?
Anybody have the source?
Honestly, it’s tough to make time for everyone’s amazing accomplishments these days. But if you don’t wait you don’t understand the effort.
Whenever I see these speed artists, I automatically flip the image upside down while they're painting to see what it is they're painting.
Bob Ross you son of a bitch
Now that's talent
Am I the only one that heard a guitar riff followed by “muuuuurica!!!” “F*ck yeah!”
Definitely worth the reveal. Thought those were gonna be some dope ass mountains.
o'm just gonna download the .mp4 and fast forward to thevend, thx
Oh fuck, that was amazing
I'm far more impressed by that straight line
Right click, show controls, go to the end to see what it is
Its cool but he does the exact same thing everytime
comin' again to save the motherfuckin' day
Not once have I ever figured out what one of these paintings would be before they flip it and every time im sure "I'll get this one"
Not gonna lie, I started looking at this upside down and I still didn't get it until he flipped it lol
But how else would you know the quality of his cotton shirt?
Not your mate buddy
I did my waiting! 12 years of it!
Feel like I've been visually Rick rolled
I didn't wait for it
Rewatched it upside down
This just makes me think of how a certain someone I know plays pictionary. Fuckin drawing pointless details until the last second. >>
>> then revealing the actual thing with no time left. (this is actually good though cus thats the point)
Look up D. Westry for similar works
My aunt is a nurse for the VA. About 5 years ago she was taking care of a patient who was one of the soldiers in that photo.
That's just unsportsman like...
Because watching someone silently paint for that long isn't really a good spectator sport.
This guy just ripped off the Bruce Lee painting guy's idea.
Pretty sure he did this while singing the national anthem
This is america
He’s repping mizzou tigers like a champion!
Try it. Publish a compilation video of all your attempts, we'll see how long and how good it takes you.
I know, I know. Waiting longer than a minute is hard.
It's been done before. Cool trick but a copy of somebody else's idea
This comment irritated me, but then I recalled the original photo was at Iwo Jima. Wikipedia: 6800 US troops died there. Upvote for history.
Crazy to think there are 11 other guys doing this
I was gonna say, it’s a neat gimmick but he basically memorised one thing...
He's very good, but might as well just use 1 brush at a time.
the moment they remove the cloth and there is already some paint in it... damn this is a poorly made trick
Oh WoW another upside down speed painting, Stil Good but the gimmicks weren’t needed
With gif fast forward I will not wait for it.
He was singing the national anthem at the same time as well.
I just watched it upside down in my phone
Joe Everson everyone. He’s from Greenville,SC. I’ve bought a few of his art pieces.
Where's her finger going...?
snap, that works well
I cheated and turned my phone upside down
Well, yeah, it's ACTION NEWS KSHB!!!
I can draw a stick figure :)
THIS WAS NOT PLANNED AT ALL
*right click / show controls / scan to the end* Cool!
It's troll users**
*Video starts* "he's going to paint upside down" *flips canvas* wow what a twist, would've never seen it coming
Watch the video, it's amazing.
He does it While singing the anthem, he times it
Me having seen a bunch of these videos: it's upside down, what is it?!?! Hawiian islands? *He flips and paints flag* me: Holy Shit!
She's searching the OFF button
Mizzou school of journalism for ya. (I kid, Mizzou's got a great journalism school)
Oh wow I was expecting a glacier
Glad I waited for it! Plus one
sucks - ROCK CHALK JAYHAWK
Yeah, I'm not particularly impressed. He's practiced this before, it's not spontaneous. He's using two brushes which looks cool at 1/2
Is that flag defying physics?
first glance but he only uses the second brush together with the first, it's not as though he's painting w/ 2 hands independently. Meh 2/2
I was looking at the whole gif with my phone upside down to know what it was before everyone else. Plan failed
Oh hey, I know that guy. Joe Everson. He’s an amazing artist, but also a singer... his family is stupid talented.
He’s also singing the national anthem... what the fuck are you good at
Too bad fry is currently frozen and wasn't there to do the camera holding.
Twice as fast lol
Now, I have seen some of these upside down reveal paintings done from start to finish that are truly impressive...
Action... NEWS! SHA-BOOM! PPPRRRRAA! CRASH! POW! SKEEERR! CCRRACK! EEERRR! BAMM! ...Tonight, at 6PM.
Perhaps. Coulda used bigger brush. I was just comparing to those who use 2 hands painting totally separately, which is crazy to me.
Where are the happy little trees?
Can we be done with this "painting looks like crap until it is flipped upside down" thing?
Meh, but you still gave him 2 out of 2. That's 100%. A perfect score!
Study the material upside down and have the silhouette ready.. ez
Taking that Action News assignment super serial...
looking at his neck makes me want a hotdog
Mildly interesting and awesome? Make up ur mind op
He sings the national anthem while doing this ^
Kind of obv he zoomed in by accident then he did fine the rest of the video. This gif belongs on other actual terrible shaky recordings.
These dudes are always painting something that winds up being turned upside down and amazing.
I think this piece was sped up and as for the zoom on the shirt. They may have been trying to color balance or set a focus point.
I watched this shit upside down. It was taking to long
Americas Got Talent has had a few & not bad, but they are all clearly practiced, & I bet if you looked at the canvas there are yellow lines
for where to paint. Those don't show up easily on camera.
It's very gimmicky. I put it on a talent par with caricature painting.
You're aunts a liar as the last person alive in that photo died in 1995.
At least the caricatures are individual, not just the same image over & over.
I'm not sure if I get it. It's speed painting, but why was the painting already half done when they pulled the tarp?
She’s searching for freedom
so it was basicly all fixed, all he had to do was draw some lines here and there, and ppl flipp their shit?
you know that it is easier to paint up side down, don't you?
Your the anti social type I’m guessing
You sound like you know what your talking about, I find that strange give the media
You could mail him a letter and ask and hope he gets back to you.
He's singing the national anthem while doing this, finishing the flag with "Home of the Brace"
The paint brushes in his left hand are pointless
wait it's not 2000? I wanted to be in first grade again
Yes. Yes he does
They all do. They always zoom in too far.
U S A! U S A! U S A!
As he sang the national anthem, as he was painting, I think. And I can’t swim and text w/o hitting something... ugh.
this is obviously very cool, but it's mainly a memorization thing right?
Ah it was about invading and killing again.
"Let me guess... he's gonna turn it around." Yep.
Wait for it, or just flip your screen
I didn't think it was bad at all. If you want bad, just look at videos I record on my phone. I couldn't hold my hand steady to save my life.
It would be more impressive if half of it wasn't already painted in advance.
Coulda just put it on a tripod and aimed it at the painting. None o that panning or zooming was necessary
He's proud to be an american and to still divide the entire world with invisible lines. Pathetic.
Well the Photographer died in 2006...
Huh, and 2 of the people from the original flag raising died in 2008 and 2007.
Well why not
Most exciting thing to happen at Mizzou in years.
Anyone else rewatch it upside down?
So.. why is everyone looking the wrong way?
That camera person was shaking like a dog shitting razor blades.
This is why I vaccinate all my kids.
its awesome. it would be awesomer if he wasnt faking using his left hand, but it is awesome.
Saw it like 2 seconds in
I didn’t know Jackson Galaxy was a master of canvas as well as cats
Sorry 5/7 is the perfect score
Hmm, interes-... he’s trolling us he’s trolling us he’s trolling us he’s... holy fuck.
Ripoff of Denny Dent the rock n roll painter.. he was doing this 30 years ago. Rip. Look him up on youtube
I would fail miserably at trying to add those bits, let alone upside down
Not to belittle talent, but the whole "whats he painting?" turn upside down "Oooooh!" effect has been done to death.
Yeah. 1995 for the last guy from the second flag. 2008 for the last guy from the first.
Or she's gullible
None of what he said was wrong, though. Who hurt you?
INB4 you tell us that choreographed dancing is boring, because "it is practiced"...C'mon mate. Ye know that's not the best argument.
Sucks as a person?
I thought they color balanced on a white or grey board before shooting.
What, you think you could do better?! Because I bet you could. Anyone could, really.
did he used to shoot porn? stick with the whole shot jesus.
"wait for it" right click->show controls->skip to the end
I’ve seen enough of these now that I’m always trying to figure out what’s it’s going to flip to. This one was good, didn’t see it coming!
Easy: just paint white over the spots where there isn't a Marine.
I don't know if it is the same guy or not, but did photography for an event where someone was doing the upside down painting trick 1/2
And the camera picked up pencil marks on the canvas that they eye couldn't see. Took away the allure and wonder if this whole thing :( 2/2
It's not always just for gimmicks though. Flipping the canvas can actually be a helpful exercise for negative space and portraiture.
Broadcast cameras focus easiest at max zoom.
Was hoping for a dickbutt
*right click + show controls + skip forward = No waiting for it.
My guess is a taco tickled him a little to much
Heh, be funny if you’re a surgeon :D
As a painter/singer who also rides a unicycle while doing both those things, I feel I'm uniquely qualified to comment
Ah you could practice, I'd be impressed if he'd have done it from scratch
1/2 There is a black balance as well, but again this is all speculation. Also, if this was a news photographer he/she was probably trying...
Too bad it was a painting of a flag of terrorist state.
2/2 to get quick shots to cut together for the piece. Source: worked in TV news for 4 years.
Mt Suribachi, Iwo Jima, not a battle for the feint hearted- in awe of anyone who ever stepped off a Higgins Boat onto a hostile beach.
Turn your screen upside down from the beginning and it makes A LOT more sense!
Someday I want someone to do this, but when they turn it over it's just a bunch of random scribbles.
Wait for it or Right Click > Show Controls
How long must I wait for it?
You realize that many artists actually do that to help see negative space and positioning? its not just a gimmick. Talent is talent anyway.
He’s not really doing much with his left hand (Amirite ladies?)
Thought it was gonna say Lebron is a bitch again
Is that a warriors game?
People are far too critical if you ask me. It's a painting not the damn olympics.
@tacotickler, you either need a punch in the dick or a hug, and I haven’t decided which one yet.
"Oop, I guess that's the zoom button"- guy they handed a camera to probably
I contend that choreographed dancing is much more difficult than this... C'mon mate
It bothers me a little bit that the flag is waving in the wrong direction...
I know that he has a brush in each hand but he really doesn't need it
Yet, they are still all practiced. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ If you argue that doing that 'trick' requires no previous skills other than memorizing, okay.
I already knew it was an upside down painting and i was still impressed
Wow, he really has a classically pleasant voice.
You can't unsee it
I've got money on you having no real talents other than being able to suck your own dick.
Because the gif doesn't show the whole thing, dipshit.
Yea, well I bet bukkakes seem normal to you now. You walk in on one happening IRL and I bet your jaw will still drop.
He was singing the national anthem as he did this I believe
I was going to put this, however you put this, so +1
Less of the 'dipshit', cuntface
"who hurt you" is the new super patronizing line is it? any time you dont agree with someone just say it to make them look bad
Camera man is a mosquito IRL.
“How do u know” *overly critical*
Who hurt you?
Imo, understanding where to place the white paint to make use of the black space makes it more impressive, than if he did it from scratch
This is impressive
Tho, I see he does the same thing every time, so I guess at this point he has it in muscle memory, since he's using the same template.
Their humanities department improved as well: thefederalist.com/2016/04/25/melissa-click-mizzou-fired-me-because-im-white/
I thought he was doing some kind of art statement on all the arctic sea ice melting.
Do you have a newsletter I can subscribe to? Inquiring minds want to know.
I have to ask the same thing about asking "What have you done, huh!?" when you don't agree with someone.
It was half painted already. WTF.
Crazy sexy action news
It's like watching Bourne
That bothered me tremendously.
Saw this guy perform at the Arizona Bowl this past season, at NM State v. Utah State, it was awesome
Guessing he was getting sharps. Though that should have been done before they started shooting.
WAs this some sort of compeition where you have to finish someone else's painting?
I too can add paint blobs to almost finished painting.
That's a good drawing but I bet he sucks at Pictionary
Saw him perform at an Allen Americans game. Decent singer, pretty cooler painter.
Was hoping this would be up higher
This is stupid
Don't have to wait for it no more - right might click - control panel.
right? like, its cool that he can do that and all but hes faking using his left hand so he can seem cool like the people who use both.
All of a sudden this "painting something weird but hey let's turn it upside down OMG look at that painting" trend just blew up...
I wonder if there are extra darkened shades of black where he fills in with white. Still badass.
Don't tell me what to do
Even more impressive is he was also directing a strike on ISIS.
Or maybe it was Japan, can’t remember.
of first place?
You assumed it was a camera and a person, you see.
Critiquing artistically bankrupt videos on imgur.
From the Halls of Montezuuumaaa, to the shores of Tripoliiiii...
In fairness, I actually had no idea he was also singing
Yo, camera guy, zoom out 2mm and get a fucking gimbal.
I just turn it upside down in my head when they start then im like meh.. another one.
This is how you adjust focus on these camera. He wasn’t ready for his turn maybe.
Thought he was blindfolded, when I realized he wasn't it was ruined for me
One of the coolest things I’ve ever seen in my life. Hang in there America. We are going to be OK
One of the coolest things I’ve ever seen in my life. Hang in there America. We are going to be OK
I here by agree to go to one of those paint class places and if they can set me up with the stuff to try for 100$ or less I’ll do it. I have
Embarrassed myself in far worse ways. And I honestly think I’ll at least get close. Mon and Tuesday are my days off. I’ll get back to you.
Anybody else turn their phone upside down when this first started already knowing it was going to be flipped
Yeah I was taught to zoom in as close as possible on the subject to set my focus. Assumed that was what was happening here.
HUH! I dod not expect that. I thought either someone rips through from behind or it becomes beatuful mountains.
I like the part where he uses 2 brushes. But only when they're moving identically and right next to each other.
not worth the wait
It's already cool enough singing and painting upside down. Still impressive though.
i didnt know he was singing! thats cool as hell. i cant get my brain to do anything else while i paint.
That’s ok :) never bash someone who understands they are wrong. You sir are a small minority.
