Optical Illusion: New 3D Drawings by Ramon Bruin

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.

Hyper-realistic Pencil Art on Wood By Ivan Hoo

Using pencils and pastels, Singapore-based artist Ivan Hoo created hyper-realistic anamorphic pieces that fool your eyes. The skilled artist plays with optical illusion to draw everyday objects like cracked eggs, spilled coffee, draining sink and broken vase directly on wood, which has such feeling and dimensions that it’s difficult to tell they aren’t real. When asked why choose wood as medium, artist said “By working on wood, it gives me a lot of dimension and ideas to create something close to reality and it works really well with pastels, too.” Below are some of our favorite works from Ivan, you can find more on his Instagram page.

Optical Illusion: New 3D Illustrations by Ramon Bruin

Do you still remember Ramon Bruin, the creative self-taught artist from the Netherlands we featured on our site, who creates optical illusion drawings that make animals and objects seem as though they’re popping off the page. Just using sheets of paper and a regular pencil, Bruin successfully transform flat surfaces into seemingly three-dimensional subjects with the technique he calls anamorphosis. It’s amazing how various animals, objects and even himself jump out of paper through Bruin’s optical illusions. You can see his previous work on our site here.

Amazing Anamorphic Illusions by Brusspup

Brusspup, the master of optical illusion released a new video about Anamorphic Illusions which show some really fun optical illusions effect. The trick taking advantage of how our brains make sense of the world. The photographs are skewed but then filmed at an angle where everything looks normal, but when the illusion is revealed it’s still pretty mind-bending. The Rubik’s cube, shoe and tape are just flat piece of papers! But they looks so real at that particular perspective – and this is made up by your brain. Don’t believe, take a look at the video!

Brasspup also provided downloadable high resolution files of the Rubik’s cube, shoe, and tape so you can print them out on 8×11″ paper, trim, and try for yourself! That is totally amazing! [source]
