Hyper-Realistic Paintings

Image credit: 

I've already posted a few works of amazingly realistic art, but since many of you seem to enjoy the medium, I figured you might enjoy a few more seen in this new WebUrbanist article.

Whether you prefer your paintings to feature still life, portraits, scenery or even food wrappers, you'll be certain to find something in the selection of artists featured. My personal favorite is Steve Mills, creator of all the pictures above. His amazing attention to detail, including the chipping paint on the table, paired with unbelievable accuracy when it comes to capturing light make the subjects of his paintings look like you could reach out and touch them.
