This 17-Year-Old Creates Incredible 3D Art

Brazilian artist João Carvalho’s work has to be seen to be believed.

Artist João A. Carvalho aka J Desenhos draws amazing 3D notepad art that seems to leap off the page.

On his popular Facebook page, Nas linhas do caderno, Carvalho shares progress shots of his drawings, encouraging others to share their artwork too.

Many of his sketches play with the signature blue lines of a notepad (most are manually drawn), bending and twisting the lines to give his characters depth.



The pieces truly come to life when Carvalho applies shading, a skill he is clearly adept at.
