The Photorealistic Illustrations of Karla Mialynne

The Photorealistic Illustrations of Karla Mialynne
Despite our modern technologically savvy ways, sometimes the best art is made through the simplest mediums. Take artist Hikaru Cho, for example, who paints imaginative scenes directly onto human bodies. Refusing to use Photoshop, Cho challenges herself to create realistic scenes with her bare hands. Hers is a work-intensive process that produces a realistic interplay between the real and the illustrated, and onlookers are immediately impressed by her work. If Cho merely printed computer-generated doodles onto paper and taped them to her subjects' bodies, her work would not look as believable and would not leave so large an impression in her followers' memories. Karla Mialynne is another meticulous artist who enjoys using old school mediums.

Ramon Bruin creates 3D Drawings on Flat Sheets of Paper The illusionary work of Dutch artist Ramon Bruin, aka JJK Airbrush, will leave you wondering what's real and what's just a clever illustration. The artist's skilled hand crafts imaginary three-dimensional worlds on two-dimensional platforms adorned with props like pencils and other art supplies used to create each image. Although, it can be confusing at times to decipher whether the props themselves are drawings. The Netherlands-based artist's anamorphic illustrations brilliantly play with perspective.

Japanese Custodian Spends 7 Years Drawing Incredibly Intricate Maze Almost 30 years ago a Japanese custodian sat in front of a large A1 size sheet of white paper, whipped out a pen and started drawing the beginnings of diabolically complex maze, each twist and turn springing spontaneously from his brain onto the paper without aid of a computer. The hobby would consume him as he drew in his spare time until its completion nearly 7 years later when the final labyrinth was rolled up and almost forgotten. Twitter user @Kya7y was recently going through some of her father’s old things (he’s still a custodian at a public university) when she happened upon the maze and snapped a few photos to share on Twitter.
