You are probably already familiar with optical illusion drawing. In most of time, you saw those drawing on the paper, floor or walls. However, Italian makeup artist Luca Luce use a totally different canvas to make his mind-blowing drawing even special. With the help of perspective, shadow placement, and a photorealistic style of drawing, he produces surreal, three-dimensional artwork on his own palm. Using his wild imagination, Luce depicts anything from tiny creatures living underneath his skin to a tiny, four-eyed face emphatically talking to him or a little pet mice laying in center of his hand. Whatever the subject matter may be, Luce’s artistic expertise convincingly creates these whimsical scenes. Here are some of our favorite and find more on Luce’s instagram page.
Since 2001, artist and illustrator David Zinn has stalked the streets of Ann Arbor, Michigan, creating temporary illustrations with chalk and charcoal. These playful street art cleverly interact with found objects and the surrounding environment, such as sidewalk cracks, bricks walls, street lamps, and flower petals, adding a delightful sense of 3D to the lively illustrations.
Take a look at Zinn’s previous work we featured on site.
Below incredibly realistic everyday objects are drawn by Italian artist Marcello Barenghi who only uses a standard set of art supplies (colored pencils and occasional enhancements using markers or watercolor) to reproduce the likeness of everyday items, including anything from a bag of chips or bottle of whiskey to a crumpled up banknote. Barenghi’s work goes beyond just seeming realistic, they appear almost three dimensional and make people wonder what they’re actually looking at. Barenghi runs a YouTube channel where he documents the process of almost every drawing.
Ramon Bruin is one of our favorite artist who are good at playing with optical illusion and create amazing 3D drawings. And this time, he has been adding even more complexity to his illustration repertoire. Using multiple sheets of paper he creates images that look like stacked towers when viewed from just the right angle. His drawings are done mostly in graphite pencil with an occasional colored pencil, ink, or acrylic to add a splash of color. Take a look at Bruin’s latest collection or check more work on his site.
