21 Awesome Hyper Realistic Paintings

might look like photographs, but it’s not 

You already checked out unbelievably realistic drawings by Juan Francisco Casas in one of my previous posts ( BicPen HyperRealism by Juan Francisco Casas ), but this time let’s take a look at the works of some of the world’s greatest photorealism masters. Forget about Photoshop, Maya or 3Ds Max – these guys have gone the old school way.
