Artist Draws Hyperrealistic Images From Random Objects [Video]



We have previously featured some high-resolution photo resembling oil paintings that exemplify the word Photorealism. Then just recently, a video of an awesome Morgan Freeman portraiture made using an iPad went viral on social media. Well I hope you’re not fed-up with the photo/hyper-realism mania already because here are some other videos of an Italian illustrator, Marcello Barenghi, showing how the art is done.

Doing a photorealistic/hyperrealistic artwork requires high level of skill to capture, and drawing that detail on to something is another. How about drawing it pretty quickly?

Marcello uses different kinds of materials in doing his artworks. From the regular colored pencils, markers and paints he is able to bring a dull line art to life.
