Photo-realistic Illustrator art
Yukio Miyamoto creates photo-realistic pictures using Adobe Illustrator. He starts by tracing out shapes over photographic references and then fills them with gradients and blends to create the final product. Keep in mind that Illustrator isn't a 3D modeling program. These were created in 2D using nothing but gradients and blends. And what I can only assume is some form of computer sorcery.
