Believe it or not, these portraits by the Spanish artist named Oriol Angrill Jorda are hand painted, although they appear to have been digitally generated. The artist uses a variety of different materials such as charcoal, watercolors, graphite, pastels, acrylics and colored pencils to create this effect.

The collection is appropriately titled 'Blendscapes,' as it fuses nature and human portraits to create these visually enticing pieces. If you closely examine the photos, you will see a layered effect that incorporates a landscape into the design. From scenic forestry mountains to snow-filled hills, the subjects of these paintings don't fall short of imagination.

Surprisingly, the Spanish artist had no intention of becoming an illustrator; it's a good thing that he was able to unlock his hidden talent, or the world would have been deprived of these masterpieces.
