Incredible three-dimensional art created by talented artist known as Fredo.
3D illusion is brilliantly enhanced by the inclusion of real world objects.
For more inspiration, check out: Massive Sand Drawings
That is awesome art, modhawk acknowledges the use of basic tools, including lighting. Nicely done Fredo! Great pick Toxel.

Tri Ari Handoko
really fantastic, two thumbs up
Hmm, its not quite Escher, but not bad.
old idea, but great nevertheless)
Most of these don’t actually look 3D though. And the first few seem really poorly rendered but it may also be the terrible lighting.
3-d drawings??? this looks like a high school project… c’mon toxel… there are thousands of new products and awesome ideas out there and you put up 3-d drawings?…
Art of Concept
No ordinary 3D drawing! Stunning!!
I’m gonna have to agree with “ummm…” it looks high schoolish, and some of them don’t translate very well 3 dimensionally. “neat”, but a far cry from Escher.
indeed, IT’S a high school work.
Fredo is 20 years old now. This Pictures were made by the chilean guy when he was 16 or 18.
To those who say it is poorly rendered, remember these are pencil drawings, not computer graphics. They are really awesome in my opinion.
Marcus Cornelius Escher + Julian Beever
They may look like high school drawings,
but they are good drawings
Can’t believe that they are high school drawings! So amazing.

it looks like MC Escher.anyway i like it!!
Fredo it’s really brilliant! At first I thought It’s real. Good job man!
I think some of you are missing the point. This work is beyond amazing!
First, they’re pencil and ink–no CG or Photoshop; just perspective. Second, look at the detail in these drawings. If you notice, the highlights and shadows are all in the right spots relative to the ambient lighting of the room they’re in.
That’s pretty impressive on its own, but the guy also drew his own reflection in an object that doesn’t even exist. This kind of work is definitely above and beyond anything I’ve seen at a post-secondary school renown for illustration, let alone high school.
the crystal ball picture is really impressive.

agree with the comments above, looks like a tribute to MC Escher! Especially the orb drawing and the lizard.

WEAK. There is so much great stuff out there. Thousands of art school students did this in highschool and then grew out of it.

Cris, why do you have such low standards for pencil drawing?
Pencil can be amazing, if you’re actually good.

Who cares if its high school or not, these are amazing. Its PENCIL! No one uses pencil anymore, at least for 3D. These are phenomenal, I love every one of them. Nice Work!

Anyone who says that these are not impressive really has no taste in art.
All are great in my opinion-emphasis on the crystal ball.

As someone who drew EXTENSIVELY with graphite in High School, I can say these really aren’t that great. He looks like he smudged them with his fingers instead of a tissue or tortillion, which is just bad technique. He also looks like he was trying to spread too little graphite way too thin, hence why the shading appears uneven and spotty. If you’re trying to get it really light, use a lighter pencil and don’t press hard. I’m not trying to troll, I’m just speaking on behalf of the artists who’ve been there. He probably was just inexperienced.
