Some artists are so realistic they seem to pop out of the page. Tullius Heuer’s digital art is just like that – you’ll have to look twice to realize it’s just a painting. And he’s completely self-taught!

The Brazilian-born artist was working in IT when he stumbles upon his passion for digital art. “I discovered Photoshop at 17 for fun, without even imagining that I could become a professional in the field. The Living Sketches project came about when I was attending a famous art contest site called Worth1000, where I learned to stimulate my creativity,” Heuer told Bored Panda.

Heuer has been honing his skills ever since and is now creating hyper-realistic 3D digital paintings which he shares on his IG account. The stunning creations are not easy to make: it takes about 9 to 10 hours to complete a piece from start to finish. He takes his inspiration from nature and fantasy to create haunting, spooky and sometimes funny images. His style keeps evolving, and there’s no telling what he has in store for us!
