Creepy body painting makes it look like you can see the guts and bones of a hand

It starts off a little cartoonish but then it quickly turns creepy and almost squeamish as the hand starts to legitimately look like it’s been sliced to expose the blood, guts, and bones. Luckily, for us and for Natalie Nakles, the artist who did this, it’s only the work of markers, pens, and clever camera angles.… »8/26/15 8:40pm8/26/15 8:40pm

Which of these leaves are not actually real?

Super photorealistic drawings are always fun to see because they tickle your brain into thinking things that you know are fake could possibly maybe be real because they just look so similar. Here’s a drawing from Dino Tomic showing a leaf drawing with a pile of other leaves. It’s hard to tell which one is fake! »7/06/15 8:20pm7/06/15 8:20pm

Video: New York at night beautifully recreated with 3,454 oil paintings

I've had this night in New York before. Actually, anyone who has lived there has had this night. And though you might not immediately recognize it, you will.

I can't believe this isn't a photo

I have a very hard time distinguishing Gregory Thielker's oil paintings from reality. It's not only that his treatment of light and texture is perfect. It's the subject matter, which makes me feel extremely nostalgic of countless road trips, driving under the rain in silence, talking with good friends and family, or… »2/13/14 5:09pm2/13/14 5:09pm

You won't believe this picture of Santa Claus was drawn with MS Paint

The things some people can do with a pencil and paper are just ridiculous. The things some people can do with Photoshop or iPad apps is just unreal. Art is amazing!
