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.
Using various pencils, pens, watercolors, and inks, New York based artist Karla Mialynne draws amazing hyper realistic illustrations that make you have wonder whether you’re looking at a photo or a painting.

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.
