More 3D Pencil Drawings by Ramon Bruin
Do you remember Ramon Bruin and his incredible 3d pencil art we wrote about last year? A mostly self-taught artist from the Netherlands now has a whole bunch of new 3D optical illusions. Ramon continues to draw with regular pencils and keeps developing his anamorphic techniques, that make the paintings look 3D. No wonder that every time you see a prop he left by the drawing, you start questioning if this one is actually real!
31-year old artist with a degree in airbrushing demonstrates great talent with many different art mediums, among them being oil, water paint, acrylic, paint pens, charcoal, graphite and pencils. Trying 3D drawing, according to him, was just another way to push his own boundaries. Despite all the many personal projects, Ramon also runs JJK Airbrush company, offering some “kick-ass airbrush designs”. And for the last time – yes, all of the pictures below are actually 2D!
Even though Ramon Bruin has a degree in airbrushing, it’s his other skill that made our jaws drop. A Netherlands-based artist creates amazing 3D optical illusions all with an ordinary pencil. As he puts it, trying photo-realism was just another way for him to push his boundaries and add another technique to his portfolio.
A 31-year-old Ramon is mostly self-taught and impressively versatile: he can also paint and draw with acrylic, oil, water paints, charcoal, paint pens, pencils and graphite. Combining his 9-year experience in airbrush and knowledge from the Academy studies, Ramon established the JJK Airbrush company. It specializes in customized work only and declares that their sole purpose is “create kick-ass airbrush designs”!

Ramon Bruin, a self-taught artist from the Netherlands (previously written about here and here), is back once again with more of his realistic 3D pencil drawings.
In this highly talented man’s hands, a sheet of white paper and a regular pencil become powerful tools used to play tricks on our eyes. It’s amazing how various animals and insects come to life through Bruin’s optical illusions. Bruin makes use of anamorphic perspective, which creates the illusion that his images look life-like and 3D – from a certain angle. This approach gives them depth and realism when viewed from a certain angle, but when viewed from any other direction, they can look like ugly, amorphous blobs.
The 31-year-old freelancer, who graduated as a professional all-round airbrush artist from the Airbrush Academie, also runs an online art shop where his fans can buy the limited edition prints. Enjoy!
