Scott Jacobs' work is characterized as photo realistic, his paintings offering extreme detail and realism. Jacobs uses both acrylic and oil mediums on canvas, masonite and other surfaces. Scott Jacobs also uses many photographs of a subject, taken from all angles to achieve the depth shown in his paintings. His professional training includes Parson's School of Design in New York, Ducret School of Art in New Jersey, and numerous illustration "getaways", all of which were taught by some of the most well established illustrators in the nation today. Scott Jacobs' style and success has rejuvenated the super-realistic genre of art. Depending on the size, each of his paintings usually takes more than one hundred hours to complete. Much of the work is done with a brush that is so small, it is like using a pencil point.
