You get to check out these stunning 3D Illustrations created by 21 year old Japanese artist Nagai Hideyuki. By displaying simple pads of paper at special vantage points, the artist’s amazing charcoal and pencil drawings form playful 3D optical illusions. Hideyuki identifies himself as an anamorphic artist, which is a style of art that stems from the early Renaissance. The style features techniques based on perspective, where an artist creates distorted images or drawings that are recognizable only when viewed in a certain way. The way he uses lighting, shading, and anamorphosis to create these 3D images is reminiscent of MC Escher but even more mind-blowing. Be sure to check out more of Hideyuki’s incredible drawings and follow him on his Deviant Art pages.
