The ability to conjure images in your mind and then render them is infinitely more difficult than drawing from reference, and Aelise Davis excels at the former so much that it’s quite frightening.

Her images are often slightly scary, as she illustrates fantastical women with elements of the macabre. Seeing a photorealistic woman holding a human heart is unnerving enough to make some viewers look away, but it speaks of Davis’ talent to be able to evoke such a reaction.

Aelise Davis is an American artist who’s mastered the art of realistic rendering. She could have easily taken those skills and kept them grounded in reality, but for her to illustrate impossible creatures speaks of Davis’ boldness. Also noteworthy are the ethereal color combinations present in most of her paintings. Stats for Hyperreal Fantasy Females Trending: Older & Warm
