No! That isn’t a photograph. Look closer and you’ll be blown away. Astonishing.

 

Scott Paul Cadden has raised the art of hyper-realistic painting to a completely new level. How he manages to capture reality with the help of a pencil and a canvas, and how he makes them look like a sharp photo, is unparalleled. He slaves over each of his works for 3 to 6 weeks. His fan community is growing constantly and in order to get an original you sometimes have to pay up to 8,000 dollars. But these pictures are worth every cent!
