22 Creative 4D Artworks That Invade Reality

No matter how professional we have become, we all had that childhood game (or dream) to have things we draw – be it a cute animal, a character, or a console we wish to have for Christmas – come to life. After all, that’s the time when we could exercise our imagination and express our expectations without any limitations. Some of us never let that phase pass, which is a good thing, because then the rest of us could watch these drawings come to life – with some help from graphic editors!

In this showcase, we are featuring 22 lively artworks that look like they belong to the physical world. Watch how creatures, tools and even the artist himself, make you question your ability to separate art from life. Enjoy them and draw inspiration from them to make your drawings alive afterward!

Meanwhile, check out our street art posts for more illusionary awesomeness!
