A Dutch freelancer Ramon Bruin proves that a skilled artist doesn’t need much to simulate reality – for him, it’s enough to just have one pencil. To get 3D effect, Ramon applies the anamorphic technique: he draws a detailed yet distorted image which comes together only when photographed from the correct angle.
A graduate of the Airbrush Academie in Lelystad, Netherlands, admits it was airbrushing that helped him develop this technique of photo-realistic drawing. It was this element of the subtle gradient that first attracted him to airbrushing, and you spot how Ramon transfers that to his pencil drawings. Check them out and you’ll catch yourself wanting to actually brush away the lizards, crawling on the sheet of paper!
