For artist Alessandro Diddi, tricking the human mind is the objective and inspiration behind his artwork. Diddi created 3D drawings with simply a pencil, paper and real-world objects.

Diddi's drawings literally appear to be leaping out of the paper. These illusions are made by different techniques in shading, depth, perspective, and the positioning of real-world objects relative to the drawing. He also folds his paper at certain angles to give off more of a convincing illusion. These drawings were entirely made by hand with pencil and sheet paper. Some of these include humans, human body parts and man-made objects.

These amazing drawings will literally have you wondering where the drawings actually begin. The shading is simply amazing.
