Ramon Bruin (previously written about here and here) keeps on astonishing us with his realistic 3D pictures. We’d like to show you some of the latest drawings of our favorite Dutch artists. In this highly talented man’s hands, a sheet of white paper and a regular pencil become powerful tools used to play tricks on our eyes. It’s amazing how various animals and insects come to life through Bruin’s optical illusions.

Italian illustrator Alessandro Diddi erases the line between fiction and reality and makes his 3D drawings leap out of the sheet of paper. Besides light and shadow effects, Alessandro also uses various props, his own hands and even the very pencil he draws with to make his anamorphic drawings come alive when viewed from a certain angle.
Do you remember Ramon Bruin and his incredible 3d pencil art we wrote about last year? A mostly self-taught artist from the Netherlands keeps developing his anamorphic techniques and now has a whole bunch of new 3D optical illusions.
After seeing lots of anamorphic illusions you get really bored about this whole thing. Yesterday, however, a friend of mine showed me a video titled “Amazing Anamorphic Illusions” that just blew my mind. A master of such illusions, going by the Brusspup nickname, posted this video just two days ago and it already has more than 2 millions views.
Even though Ramon Bruin has a degree in airbrushing, it’s his other skill that made our jaws drop. A Netherlands-based artist shows demonstrates how well he’s mastered the art of 3D illusions, all drawn by pencil. As he puts it, trying photo-realism was just another way for him to push his boundaries and add another technique to his portfolio.
Do you remember the amazing 3D Pencil Drawings by 17 Year Old Fredo we’ve shown you last year? Well, don’t be deceived, this is not another collection of his work. The sketches below are all drawn by the 21-year-old Nagai Hideyuki from Japan. Inspired by British 3D street artist Julian Beever, Hide uses the same projection technique called anamorphosis which allows to create 3D illusion when viewed from the correct angle.
Abyssal is an image of an abyss constructed in vertical anamorphosis, in which successive lines of windows in great perspectival compression provoke the perception of a space in depth, which will function as a virtual hole able to provide uncanny spatial distortions. This large-format digital image also involves a temporal dimension – since through it I sought to recover, almost archaeologically, the memory of the old-fashioned windows of the market that used to operate in this building.
Swiss artist Felice Varini has been creating illusions of flat graphics superimposed on three dimensional spaces since 1979 using the same eye-deceiving technique called anamorphosis. The complete shapes can only be seen when viewed at certain angles, otherwise the viewer will only see some random broken pieces.
Do you remember the Anamorphic Typography by Joseph Egan we’ve posted earlier? Well, Truly Design made this cool Medusa illusion using the same eye-deceiving technique called anamorphosis. This challenging work was implemented in the factory/urban lab which hosted Sub Urb Art.
Young Chilean artist Fredo draws absolutely mind-blowing three-dimensional pencil drawings that look like they’re about to jump off the page. Well, actually, he’s already 20 years old at the time of writing this article, but our title is not completely a lie – majority of his works were submitted to Deviant Art back in 2008 or even 2007 when he was 16-17 years old. Some of his 3d drawings took him only 30 minutes to complete, but there were cases when he needed a whole month.
Today, we want to show you another wonderful 3D illusion which is installed in front of the steps of Paris’s city hall. French artist François Abélanet created this incredible 3-dimensional grass globe with the help of about ninety workers and called it ‘Qui croire?’ (‘who to believe?’). When viewed at a certain angle it looks as though it was a large sphere.
This time we compiled a list of the world’s top 5 most talented 3D sidewalk chalk artists showcasing some of their best works. Those guys are: Edgar Mueller, Julian Beever, Kurt Wenner, Manfred Stader, and Eduardo Rolero. Their works are created using a projection called anamorphosis, and create the illusion of three dimensions when viewed from the correct angle.
