Mirror Mask FREE-VIEW by Artismo69 Mirror Mask FREE-VIEW by Artismo69
The image above is a Stereoscopic Paintings - It will become three dimensional if you look at them just the right way - It is called FREE-VIEWING

What is FREE-VIEWING? It means you can see stereoscopic images in 3D without the use of glasses.

How does one FREE-VIEW?

Stare at the painting and then cross your eyes so you see three images. Focus on the middle one. Relax your eyes a bit - be patient - you will lock it in like a tractor beam. Once you get it the first time it will becomes much easier. Move your head side to side and the piece will actually turn toward you.

THIS CAN BE UNCOMFORTABLE FOR SOME - ATTEMPT AT OWN RISK:)

You can try the smaller image first as your eyes don't have to be crossed too much. If you get it, move on to the larger version - it's a little more difficult as your eyes will have to strain a bit more, but it's worth it.

If you enjoyed this, you can find more stereoscopic painting on my page.

... Have fun!

In addition to the "FREE-VIEW" paintings, I have included the original paintings that were intended to be viewed with stereoscopic glasses. If you enjoyed the effects from FREE-VIEWING, you will be blown away at the effects when glasses are used.

If you are curious to see the effects the way I intented them to be seen, you can
purchase a fantastic device called the LOREO Lite 3D Viewer for $1.70. They are made in Hong Kong and will ship anywhere in the world.

I dabbled with the concept of creating stereo paintings for several years before I created my first piece.

I had never heard of anyone attempting this. I thought I was the first. I did a google search and there was no mention of what I had planned. I later found out that Dali, before he died, had a passion for it... gotta love him!

But...

he didn't have access to the tools at my disposal - Tee Hee Hee:)

How do I do it???

I mounted a pair of mirrored goggles in front of my screen and looked through them as I work in Photoshop. The source images come from a pair of photos taken at the same time with two cameras.

The "Lincoln" piece was my first stereo idea long before I even attempted the feat. I wanted to see my favorite President in living color as if he was right there infront of me - the lap dance was my gift to the stoic icon. I didn't execute the idea until I mastered the skill.

My first actual attempt was the "Self Portrait". The effect... well, sucked. My second piece "Mirror Mask" was a different story. "The Soul" also turned out nice (make sure you move your head side to side on this one - watch the guitar).

I will be uploading new stereo picts over the next few weeks!

Cheers,

Daniel

As a veteran 'free viewer' I saw this at once. Add yourself to the list of successful stereo painters, which includes Salvador Dali [link] !

This one looks brilliant both as a stereoscopic image, and as a standalone piece of art.

Dammit! I tried the cross eyed method and the finger focus. I get close. The images start to move together and I see a single image for a second then I lose it.

Okay, I've seen a few of the other pieces in your gallery, and so far it seems like the effect is most dramatic in this one. Amazing concept, and stunning execution. You've got quite a lot of skill, man!

Woah O.o haven't seen one of these things in years. My mom got me a book full of pictures of this kind.
But this one looks pretty damn awesome. I love the 3D effect. Never understood how it happens, but it's awesome:D

Very effective, especially when moving slightly side-to-side, although this is a cool piece aside from the stereoscopic affect.

Maybe in concept, but definitely technically. Simulacrum has more "airy" depth and took 10x the amount of time to achieve.

Holy crap! I tried one or two of the others and couldn't get them to work and was just about to give up when I looked at this one and got it to work. That's amazing! Great work.

By the way, if you've seen the newest album by the band Tool, their album artwork uses stereoscopic images. It comes with a little set of lenses that you can look through so that you don't have to cross your eyes, which makes the pictures immediately pop out at you.
