Illusion Or Reality? Uncanny 3D Paintings By Russian Artist Are Impossibly Lifelike

Stefan Pabst is a 35-year-old Russian born artist who has mastered the art of 3D digital painting to the extent where his paintings trick the eye as the are often mistaken for real photographs, and more frighteningly, the real subject walking off the paper. The artist has adopted a French technique, known as trompe l'oeil technique, which literally translates into the French term “trick the eye”. The expert painter’s abilities extend into photo-realistic portraits as well. Fine details and flawless precision of each stroke and shadow, made effortlessly as seen on Pabst’s Youtube channel, is a beautiful process to witness as the artist becomes absorbed into his art until a realistic snake readies itself to strike at him from the canvas.

The gripping videos where the process of creating his 3D masterpieces can be seen, literally from scratch to finish, features Stefan Pabst at his best - executing lifelike creations of celebrity portraits and 3D paintings of animals and objects. Armed with a wide assortment of brushes and with decades dedicated to perfecting this technique, it takes the artist an average of three hours of manipulating paint to mimic light, shadow and angle of the realistic subject.

Stefan Pabst has drawn accurate visuals of Scarlett Johansson and Angelina Jolie, and breathtaking spiders, snakes, and eerie creatures come alive under his touch. His highly acclaimed Youtube channel is an inspiring resource for emerging artists, and a chance for them to learn the art of Pabst’s oil dry brush painting technique.
