Never Before Seen 3D Chalk Drawings

Chalk drawings on pavement have been around since the first caveperson found a strange stone that made marks when rubbed against other rocks. Well they’ve come a long way baby!
Artists started experimenting with sidewalk chalk drawings a long time ago but with the explosion of 3D movies and TV’s those humble beginnings have blossomed into extremely popular works of art on city sidewalks.
Take a look at this man getting ready to dive into the water. What’s real and what isn’t? No matter, the effects are strikingly real. It’s so hard to tell it’s all totally flat sidewalk.
Just how is this done? The eyes get fooled not unlike an optical illusion. Take a look at the next image.

Look at the guy getting into the pool with the woman. It looks real doesn’t it?

Look at the other side of the picture and you can see how the eye is fooled. Really cool huh? Now that you have seen how it’s done let’s look at some of the never before seen 3D chalk drawings.
These are hot off the press! I found them online today doing some research for other blogs and they caught my interest. These are all done by different artists. Enjoy them, they’re incredible!
All these are done on flat services with chalk only. When it rains they will wash off. A lot of work for just a small amount of time.

MADRID, 10/07/07.-El pintor británico Julian Beever posa junto a su obra, una cascada de agua que, mediante una técnica llamada anamorfosis, crea en el espectador la ilusión de introducirse en la obra, que está pintando en la Plaza Manuel Gómez Moreno de la capital.

I was just going to post the newest 3D chalk drawings but I got excited and added a few more. I doubt that you’re complaining.

What wondrous work these artists have done! I like that people can stand in them so when a picture is taken it looks as if they are in the drawing! Which one is your favorite?

I hope you like the geekiness and topics that I write about in Wonderland. This is an older blog so I don't write very often anymore, however, the posts from the past are still enjoyable and I wrote on a plethora of subjects so give my Wonderland a try you may like it. Big hug!

BTW I have Comment Moderation turned on for the rude ones who have to leave fake comments with poorly hidden links in them. You ruin it for everyone but you already know that.
