- Trompe-l'oeil - by coreymill - Trompe-l'oeil - by coreymill
==FULL VIEW OR DIE== ^___^

Shutup, no one said I was a photographer ;P . . . and everything is slightly distorted because I was using a flash, and if I was straight on, it would be all shiny : (

- So this is my second project for my Drawing II class, it's a graphite drawing, and it’s probably my favorite project that I have done thus far in college. As soon as he described the project, I actually became excited about doing it.

- - The project was to create a Trompe-l’oeil (“Fool the Eye”) drawing. Since this has much to do with trickery and deception, I chose magic as my theme for this drawing. Using these commonplace magic trick objects to create a picture that would trick the viewer into thinking that things that are drawn on the surface are actually not drawn, but physically on the piece. To achieve this effect, I used overlapping, and by bending and playing with the objects I was able to achieve a feeling of the objects actually “coming off the page” . . . at least I hope I achieved this ^^;

- - - Well, I really hope you like this piece as much as I do, and if you do please go and check out some (it's a big pic) = = = DETAIL PICS here === [link]

Yes I believe you acheived your goal. The detail is amazing. The quaters in the corner were hand drawn? I'm blown away because they look completely real. The cards are cool, very pleasing piece and adding your name personalizes it in my opinion. Awesome work! :clap:

I bet they were, the looked like it. But that means you're talented. :love:

Sol likes boots, preferably knee high, but boots in general are fine too. :D

I don't quite get the trick you meant to do. Do you mean you wanted people to think that the objects on the paper were really on the paper and not drawn. If so you did a really good job of that.


And the details you put into this piece are really awesome too. You actually went and detailed that quarter...
