19-Year-Old Artist Draws Unbelievably Realistic Eyes Using Just Colored Pencils

Jose Vergara (a.k.a. Redosking), a 19-year-old artist from Texas, is drawing close-ups of the human eye with the sort of hyper-realistic level of detail that one would ordinarily expect from experienced masters. Vergara draws using only colored pencils, which makes his work all the more impressive. Most of us use or have used, at one point or another, colored pencils, which makes it easier to realize just how much more talented he is than most of us. And he’s only 19 years old!

Imagine biting into an eggplant and feeling raw egg run from your teeth through its brittle shell… Talented Japanese artist Hikaru Cho has made such a bizarre experience possible by misleadingly painting these food items to look like totally different food products. Cho’s artwork is playful but well-done – her work with acrylic paint is hyper-realistic and convincing. Which makes things all the more amusing when she cuts or opens the actual food product underneath.

By • Dec 30th, 2013 • Category: Art, Drawing, Latest Posts

Zaria Forman creates breathtaking pastel drawings of Greenland’s icebergs that are exceptional in three ways. First of all, the drawings look so realistic that you might feel the frost coming out of them. Secondly, the artist is raising awareness on climate change and is going to give a percent of all sales to the movement 350.org. But that’s not all. Her art is also a gift to her late mother who was diagnosed with brain cancer on Mother’s Day.

By • Dec 3rd, 2013 • Category: Art, Digital Art, Latest Posts, Painting

Believe it or not, that picture of Morgan Freeman is not a photo – it’s a finger painting. UK-based artist Kyle Lambert finger-paints (or finger-draws, if you’re a purist) extraordinarily photo-realistic portraits of famous Hollywood stars on his iPad. Although the brief time-lapse video makes it look like a breeze, it actually took Lambert more than 200 hours and 285,000 brush strokes to complete.

Sydney-based artist Alex Seton creates these super-realistic sculptures of our everyday clothes – from cozy hooded sweatshirts to soft-looking t-shirts and sports costumes – from solid marble.

We wrote about Ron Mueck’s hyperrealistic human sculptures three years ago, and now he is back with three more incredible works.

Samuel Silva, a 29-year-old Portugal-based attorney, describes his artwork merely as a hobby, and Bic ballpoint pens – as only one of the mediums in his creative work. It takes time to believe that his drawings are not actually photographs, and then to absorb the information that they were created using only 8 different-colored pens.
