When it comes to puzzles and optical illusions, netizens are instantly obsessed with trying to unravel the mystery. But it wasn’t the optical illusion that confused everything online these days, but the incredibly stunning paintings that weren’t photographs.

Many people were distrustful and wondered why simple filter coffee photos were so popular, but young artists shared time-lapse videos and how amazing she was. I showed you what I drew.

Regarding the intricate details that captivated the netizens, she explained, “I wanted to incorporate hyperrealism and Impressionism into the art, so I left the texture of the painting raw.”

It was intentional, but I wasn’t trying to fool people online,” she received. I mentioned and added some disliked comments.
