Have you ever made shadow animals against a wall? It’s funny how sometimes just the shape of the hand looks just like an animal! Artist Guido Daniele has also noticed that and has taken the art of hand animal mimicry to a whole new level…
Top 10 Amazing Animal Hand Paintings
CLICK ON ANY OF THE IMAGES BELOW TO SEE THE REST OF THIS ARTISTS WORK
10 – Snow leopard
Guido Daniele developed this body painting technique while working in advertising. But skills like this are something you are born with (my opinion).
9 – Iguana
From reptiles to birds to mammals. The artist also does coral reefs, planets and even trees and windmills all made from paint and hands!
8 – Parrot
You will soon notice how it is hard to work out where the fingers lay under the painting sometimes. But I promise you that is all these images are. hands and paint, nothing more.
7 – Elephant
There are times like this Elephant when the natural cracks in the skin seem to add to the realism of the painting.
6 – Dolphin
Some of these hyper-realistic hand painting illusions seem almost 3 dimensional.
5 – Dog
I love that the artist calls these “Handimals” it sounds like something a TV show would be called.
4 – Snake
It’s not just the artists painting talent that makes these animals look so realistic, it is also about the positions of the hands and fingers.
3 – Duck
This is a lot better than when I do a hand impression of a duck. But I also make a pretty convincing duck noise as well.
2 – Clownfish
It seems finding Nemo is as simple as knowing the back of your own hand!
1 – Zebra
From now on you might never look at those silly hand shadow animals the same way.
