Many of you who actually pay attention to my work may have seen these three images.
Mixed Dimensions by Nanaki-Murasaki
Confused Reality by Nanaki-Murasaki
Interconnectivity by Nanaki-Murasaki

time to reveal a secret about them. This is actually a style of art i took on back in High School. I aptly named it Abstract Geometrism. I thought only in numbers when it came to my art. measurements and numbers. So i thought about translating this though process into a form of art. I soon found a protractor and a ruler. Using those two items plus a pencil i made a very very complex image that took only hours to make. When it was done. It was a very random mess. Eventually i honed the skill and understanding of what i was doing in my mind to translate the images.

I soon discovered later on that by usings a form of intersection weaving in the lines i could create what i called false depth. This false depth evolved into false dimension by making you perceive a 3rd dimension when in fact there is no real depiction of such a trait. This lead to another discovery. When i added varying levels of shading to the image it began to create a new form of design possibilities i could unlock at will.

Basically these 3 images details how far i have become.

The first is Mixed Dimensions
When you look at this image you see a mess of straight lines that have been purposely hardened and made thick like that. even with the shading you can still see the lines. Now following the lines you still to make out shapes. These shpaes then make patterns. these patterns then begin giving the illusion that its 3D. TADA!

next is Confused Reality.
This one is my personal favorite. This was all done by eye using a ruler and a pencil. again using my technique as above you begin to notice strange objects. There are in fact 3 pyramids 1 octahedron 1 cube.
The lines and shading actually help conceal the true purpose of the image. By using shading in places you wouldn't expect your eyes are tricked into looking somewhere else to find the pattern and meaning. But as your eyes start to trace the image out. you begin to notice whats really going on.

last is Interconnectivity
This one was a odd one even to me. I originally wanted to do a image like above but it evolved into a fake 3D cube with the back faces erased so that you only see the front and 2 sides. then using my intersection weaving trick i drawn on the cubes surface varying the angles a bit to make it look more and more chaotic. as the result went on. It evolved into a illusion of the perception of placement in the image. when you look at the cubes faces you think its just lines on a cube but when you follow the random lines you see that the cube has inverted and the lines look like they are flying through it and inside it. this is the effect attained by the Intersection weaving.

Hope this sums up how these images worked and maybe give you some insight on how to do this.
I may post a tutorial to this style of art someday for giggles. ENJOY!

Hey Nanaki, did you get my Note? <=)
Chance-n-Characo Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2014
So... Nanaki... Aaaaaas it would turn out, you and me have a lot more that we like in common than I ever let on... Wanna say sorry for ignoring you so often... I absolutely love a lot of the stuff your into XD and SOMEHOW, you found me even on FA, lol. Its sorta funny, ain't it?
Nanaki-Murasaki Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
heh dude that is always your business. If you never wanted to tell me. I have no reason to pry. I was actually amazed when i saw you crop up on FA after 4 years. I was like "wait a minute...noo that can't be him. I know it isn't him" Then lo and behold i find out it really was you. hahah strange world isn't it?
Chance-n-Characo Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2014
No no no no. You were always exceedingly friendly, and I avoided you because of the likes we shared that I was still keeping to myself, and that was a very wrong reason to ignore you, ESPECIALLY because we liked so many of the same things! It was... just very mean... And I do owe you an apology for that.
Yeah XD I've had that account for ages, and I shut doing doing anything on it cause the first person who talked to me on there was you, and I was so worried for so long about people finding out, a very stupid worry I now realize. I remember how worried I was when you were like the first person to talk to me on FA XD. I was too ashamed of who I was, ya know?
Yeah, lol... Its a damned strange world. I'd like to try being your friend now, if you'd allow me...? I have a lot of wasted time to make up for so far as that is concerned, and again, I'm sorry for that c:>...
Nanaki-Murasaki Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
haha no need to apologize i fully understand. Its like i said i have no business on what goes on in your head. If you freely tell me like now then its ok. Otherwise i simply don't pry into peoples personal affairs. Also i feel a apology is in order. I did actually find you all those years ago out of sheer luck. I wasn't even looking for you. I simply scanned FA and poof there was characo.
