25 Hyper Realistic Drawings You’ll be Convinced Are Actually Photos
Some artists just have a special touch. Especially when it comes to creating a hyper realistic drawing. Therefore, this kind of mastery is no small thing.
An artist is not born, but created. Because of this, there are many people who try their hand at hyper-realism, especially with pencil and charcoal. However, it’s the artists who dedicate themselves wholly to their craft who achieve the effect of a photograph.
Realistic drawings have a certain life to them. Well, maybe not these terrifyingly realistic Homer Simpson renderings. However, realistic sketches have an even more otherworldly pull to their orbit because they are not a polished work of art, but rather a moment of creation and expression. They both, however, can still resemble a photograph. Similarly, sometimes it’s hard to even tell the difference.
However, some of the main artists who have done an excellent job at creating hyper realistic drawings deserve to stand in the spotlight. So that’s exactly what we’ve done.
Let’s take a look at three incredible artists who are accomplished in hyper realism. With some of these works, it’s hard to believe they’re not a photograph.
