If you ever wonder why zebra has strip and leopard has spots, Mexican artist Ricardo Solis give his every own explaination. In his whimsical paintings, artist depicts how to build each creature’s colorful details, feathers, stripes, or spots, from a goldfish to an bear. Therea are actually many tiny humans crawling up and down the monolithic animals, covering them in paint, sculpting or pouring pigments from a flying Zeppelin. Although we all know Solis’ creative interpretation is far from reality, but it is still a lot of fun to look at these imaginative works.
In the world of hand painting, Italian artist Guido Daniele is definitely a leading innovator. By having his models contort their hands into specific positions, he could use his painting skills to transform it into highly detailed and realistic animals onto hands. On average the typical “Handimal” takes around three to four hours to paint in its entirety. For Daniele, the hardest part is not the painting itself, but rather having to watch his paintings be washed down the drain and disappear on a daily basis. But luckily, we still can see those amazing works on photos.
