3D effect on an original drawing by Ramon Bruin.
This 3D image of a galleon was an original sketch by a guy called Ramon Bruin. He’s a fascinating chap that sketches on three sheets of a4 paper and almost brings his drawings to life, you will have to click the link to see what I mean. The galleon was not sketched particularly well and if you look carefully there are plenty of errors that he’s made whilst executing his 3D effect. He has a great imagination though and has the ability to put his ideas into practical use.
The Galleon sketch he made was quite striking and reminded me of the technique I use to make my Photo Fun pictures that you can view in my gallery here. Just like Ramon Bruin’s sketches, my photos aren’t meant to be taken seriously but they look pretty good and I get a lot of requests to do these for other people.
I’m currently working out how to make 2D paper cut-outs of people and objects then sticking them into a 3D environment but I haven’t quite got it yet. Perhaps you don’t even know what I’m talking about but I am sure it will look great in the end.
So anyway, this photo you are looking at is my humble attempt to bring more life into Ramon Bruin’s 3D Galleon using my own techniques as I have mentioned earlier. I was really tempted to correct his sketching errors but thought it best to keep it simple. After all, my idea is to make a flat picture look 3D so changing things might be kind of cheating. Hope you like it and if you have anything similar that you would want to use my skills with just let me know. You can post in this blog or maybe go over to my Facebook page and comment there.
