A trained artist can already create detailed pencil drawings, but when they achieve a real mastery of perspective and 3D space, their art, both literally and figuratively, reaches a whole new level. Here are some examples of 3D pencil art that look like they leap off of the page at you.

While 3D art is not really new, the craft came back in style quite recently. For centuries the artists shied away from realistic paintings so that they can express the life behind the boundaries of ‘realness.’ Now that technologies enhance our ‘realness,’ the depiction of life as is using the 3D drawing technique comes back with gusto.

Artists like Ramon Bruin, Alessandro Diddi and Fredo represent a highly technical form of art that we rarely see on Bored Panda. The tools they use are simple – just pencil and paper. With a whole lot of practice and dedication, you could draw something like this too.
