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 artist. 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.
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.
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.
It’s hard to believe, but the pictures you’re about to see are not photographs – they were all drawn using a single pencil! Paul Lung, a Hong Kong based graphic designer doesn’t even use an eraser – all he needs is a 0.5 mm technical pencil, A2 paper and some time..Well, about 60 hours. The artist even has to document his work process in order to prove that his works are actually drawn.
