Not the dumb kind of 3d with glasses and junk. The kind where you have to cross your eyes. Part of the magic here is that the images are not rendered up in perfect photorealism. They're looser and more painterly. This adds a tremendous surrealism when viewed in 3d. It's a very cool experience, and he's a phenomenal painter, so check it out!Click here to see them!
I have never been able to make the images "work" before, but when I looked at these everything suddenly worked for me. If you've never been able to experience the illusion, like me, give it a shot anyway. It's worth it.
Tips for viewing:
Theo has an instructions tab. Check that if you're unfamiliar with the stereo viewing process. Personally, I just get within a foot and a half of my monitor, cross my eyes, and slowly uncross them until the image lines up. Then just pause, hold it there, and let the 3d slowly come into focus. Get your cursor off the image when you're looking at it, as anything overlapping the image that isn't intentionally placed there will mess up the delicate engineering. Todd Lockwood suggested this process when he posted them on Facebook:
The trick is to hold your two hands up about two, three inches apart, so that the left hand is shielding the picture on the left, and likewise on the right. Now your right eye can only see through the gap to the left image, and vice-versa. Then cross your eyes until the images merge, hold it long enough to focus. Once it snaps in, you're good.
If you want to see more of this man's work -- and I'm not being paid to say this -- here's his dA: If you want to see more of my casual art updates, such as my speedpaintings and studies, and everything I find useful and relevant, feel free to follow or add me on Facebook. That's where the art people are really networking now, it seems.
I know I've been away for awhile. I'm doing client work right now. I'll be back at personal work within a couple months, after I move! Love you guys!
