The work of Singapore-based artist Keng Lye could easily pass for some nice photos of sea life – except that they’re not photos, but three dimensional photorealistic paintings! Keng achieves the 3d effect similarly to 3d printer – he pours a layer of resin into a bowl and paints it with acrylics, layer by layer revealing more and more of each creature. His painting technique is almost the same as Riusuke Fukahori’s, but Keng found a new twist to it – he made his creations protrude from the surface.

With Halloween approaching, many of you are probably looking for costume and make-up ideas. Maybe this Japanese art student Chooo-San, aged 19, could inspire you: her new body paint works started circling the Internet and would definitely pass for an impressive Halloween costume.
When you find out that the works of Robin Eley are actually oil paintings, and not photographs, you immediately go back to have another look. It takes a really good eye to actually see the paint strokes: hard as it is to paint people in such a realistic manner, Robin also “wraps” his models into plastic, which makes it all the more impressive.
Japanese art student Chooo-San, aged 19, uses only acrylic paint and her incredible talent to transform herself into a mutant or cyborg. Multiple mouths, six eyes or even batteries protruding from her forearms – these are just a few examples of what she can do with a human body. Everything began when Chooo-San was studying for university admission exams. She would draw eyes and other objects on her hands while taking breaks from her studies.
It’s hard to believe, but the picture above is not a photograph! It is a photo-realistic oil painting by Teresa Elliott called “Deliverance” – one of three Grand Prize Winners of the second annual America China Oil Painting Artists League competition.
Venezuelan tattoo artist Yomico Moreno creates some of the creepiest and most realistic muscle tissue and biomech tattoos you’ll ever see. Personally, I have no problem looking at these images, but after seeing my girlfriend’s reaction (I’ve never seen her so shocked) I think I have to put a warning. Caution: Some images may be too intense for some viewers, so if you are a sensitive person, please do not view this.
It’s hard to believe, but these lively goldfish swimming in the bowls are not real at all! A Japanese artist named Riusuke Fukahori is painting these incredibly realistic three-dimensional goldfish using acrylic paint layered over clear resin. Just like 3D printer, the artists paints the fish layer by layer, with the sandwiched slices revealing slight more about each creature.
We’ve already looked at some unbelievably realistic drawings and paintings before but it’s nothing compared to what you are about to see. This time, let’s take a look at the works of some of the world’s greatest photorealism masters – Roberto Bernardi, Steve Mills and Erich Christensen. Forget about Photoshop, Maya or 3Ds Max – these guys have gone the old-school way.
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.
Meet Eric Grohe, a world famous artist who designs and paints vividly realistic murals and architectural facades, transforming ordinary spaces into panoramic works of beauty, depth and inspiration. You can say it’s the the same old Julian Beever’s 3D Pavement Art, except it’s on the walls this time.
Julian Beever is an English, Belgium-based chalk artist who has been creating trompe-l’œil chalk drawings on pavement surfaces since the mid-1990s. His works are created using a projection called anamorphosis, and create the illusion of three dimensions when viewed from the correct angle.
