Kamalky Laureano is a Dominican artist that creates almost realer-than-real-looking portraits of human faces. He says that having it look like the subject isn't enough, however. It must capture their humanity.
Robin Eley is a British painter that creates their works using oils. They often obscure their subjects' lack of clothes using a plastic bag. This creates an elegant effect, and makes it even more difficult to believe this isn't a photograph.
Yigal Ozeri is the creator of this work. Seriously, how is this a painting? Hard work and years of practice went into refining these skills, but he had to have been born with some natural talent. He must have been an artistic child prodigy.
Looking at this, you'd think Roberto Bernardi was a talented photographer. Maybe he is, but like the others, this is also a painting. His still-life images are transcendent in their attention to detail.
Mathew Cornell draws nature. However, humans are never present in his work. He says the reason he does this is because he feels an ideal nature would include no humans. Let's be thankful his talents are in art and not super villainy.
Ruth Tyson is another artist you won't be able to believe does all of her works using only a pencil. She occasionally mixes in paint as well. This gives her images a deeper look, making each one look not only realistic, but wonderfully composed.
