Posted the latest update on my newest Reverse Perspective... This one is coming along, slowly... SO many other projects at the moment, I am only getting 1 or 2 hours a day in on this one... Oh well...

I have another block sitting there ready to go, too- I think that it is going to be a room from above...

Alright, I'll bite.....
I have a static picture which doesn't really convey the depth. How do you get it to be animated?

Carol, this is really pretty. You did a very nice job with it.

Andrew, I think this is my favorite of the ones you've done so far. Looks like it took a bit of time.
I'm hoping to get mine sealed and sanded this weekend so that I can get the drawing laid out on the block.

I use animated GIF's, it is the only way to do it on this site (because of the size restriction. To make them "move", I take a series of pictures, starting from one side and moving to the other. It is important to stay the same distance from the painting, and kind of move in an 'arc' in front of it. I usually take 5 or so pics.

Most nicer photo editing programs allow you to make animations, I use Photoshop elements... If your photo program doesn't allow this, you can download a number of them that do from any shareware/freeware site.

If all else fails, or you don't feel comfortable enough on the computer to attempt doing the animation yourself, I can do it for you... Just send me the pics of the block and I will edit them as required... The only drawback is that they will loose a lot of detail, in order to make the file small enough...

Thanks, I like that one, too! It works really well. I actually painted that one while I was on the ship, so I had PLENTY of time to spare...

Re: Project Discussion: Reverspective

I finally got my block sanded and gessoed. I've got my idea for the block and hopefully I can draw my idea on the block tonight or tomorrow. I can't wait to get started so I guess that means I have to quit reading WC forums huh?

Can't wait to see the results!

Remember to take some WIP pics as you work- I find this useful for future reference, and fun to share!

Re: Project Discussion: Reverspective

I got on a roll yesterday and plan on finishing today; which is a good thing as I'm pretty much away from home solidly for the next 3 or 4 weeks. I'm definitely getting addicted so I will have to work out a way to make some of my own - not easy because I have no space to do that sort of work. I might have to get everything together and drive up to MA for a weekend to my future in-laws place and just work on some.

Actually, I posted my first WIP last night. I was going to work on it some more today but my 4 year old granddaughter came to visit. So she got my attention rather than my block. Let me know what you think, suggestions comments.

I like this concept a lot- Looking good so far, too!!

You are getting a LOT of detail in your paintings, too... Much more skill than I have as a painter!

Can't wait to see this one done- It should be GREAT!!

Re: Project Discussion: Reverspective

Thanks for the comments Andrew. I get myself in trouble because of my detail. I've been doing postcards for the postcard exchange. If you get a chance to check out that project do. Some of the finished postcards are just beautiful.

Great project, has given me a lot of practice. I'm glad I sign up for both yours and the post card exchange.

Oh I did post my latest WIP. I finished another of the paintings and got most of the final painting done.

Really looking good...

When you get to the floors and ceiling, there are a few things that you can do to make them really 'pop'- Try to use some sort of floor pattern that is dominated by lines running the length of the room, for example a wood floor, tile floor, etc. This continues the illusion, and draws the eye into the painting. The same thing goes for the ceiling- Some sort of tile- or anything that creates lines running to the vanishing point... Everything that you can do to draw the viewer in helps!

I have also used crown moulding and baseboards to provide these lines...
