After perusing several analyses of the portrait, it appears the artist incorporates homoeroticism in his art. Now I am tending to think Obama, because of his pro-LGBT political campaign, signed off on this. Even more, it makes the conspiracy theory Obama is a "closet" homosexual more believable.

If photoshop was used it is not relevant to if something is a painting or not. For instance if you take a photo and trace it and then do a painting. It has nor relevance. If you have a photo of of a few leaves and you trace that many times to make a large block of foliage or you use photoshop to do the copying and then you project the image on to canvas and paint it, it has no relavance
I am not sold on Snopes and they have been cited wrong before. Plus, the source of the claim is irrelevant and only serves as an ad hominem attack. Because of this artist's history of painting sperm cells in portraits, I think it is fair game to scrutinize Obama's portrait, at least.
