Mind-Blowing 3D Pencil Drawings by Nagai Hideyuki

 

Nagai Hideyuki is a 21 year old artist from Tokyo, Japan. His recent series of 3D artworks using only paper and pencils have been spreading like wildfire online. And for good reason, his drawings are truly incredible. His typical set up involves two sketchbooks. One placed upright against a wall while the other lays flat on his desk. This simple set up is the environment for his anamorphic art.

What’s really neat is that Nagai switches up the angles so it’s not always the same viewpoint (these artwork only work when viewed from a specific angle). Most are from a 45-ish degree angle with a handful from a head-on perspective. Another cool trick is the incorporation of props like erasers and toy cars into his work. This inclusion of actual physical objects breaks down a barrier between his art and the ‘real world’.

You can find Nagai online on his personal website, deviantART and Facebook. Be sure to check out his entire portfolio! We’re looking forward to more awesome work from this up and coming artist!
