Stereoscopic Pictures by OrmIrian Stereoscopic Pictures by OrmIrian
A few days ago I saw the pictures of *Shockbolt with the stereoscopic effekt: [link] & [link]
and I was remembered of those cool 3D pictures, which took me years to see (well, I never really knew how to do it excatly) ... I was amazed once again by the effect and somehow it don't even look that hard to do such a picture, so I thought I might try it as well.

Well, it was harder than I thought, but I quite like the result. :D

If you want to know how to see the pictures in 3D, you might need to read through this article here: [link]

__________________

So basically, you need to cross your eyes, so the two pictures will get four- two of them will merge in the middle and create the 3D picture.
For me it's easier if I take a very thin object (like a pencil maybe) and focus on it, while holding it in front of the screen- when the pictures start to pulsate (because your brain try to merge the whole thing to something that makes sense), you can try to "focus" more on the screen by moving your head slithely back- and forward. If everything goes well, you will soon see a 3D picture like for example in the 3D cinema :D (hope that's explained understandable- if not feel free to ask)

Isn't our brain amazing? :love:

Oh, and if you want to see it bigger click download.. but I warn you, it's really big.

Hehe, thank you :aww:

If you aren't that close to the screen, your eyes won't hurt that much- you can use your finger or something else to find the right focus (it's easier than without anything)

I don't know if anyone has said this yet but the tip of the sword really looks 3D if you put on a pair or red and blue glasses.
Just thought i might share that and ask if that was your intention.

Heh, that's really quite interesting to hear! :D
Actually, this wasn't an intended effect, nor did I even notice it until now! :P Somewhat funny to create another 3D illusion, without even knowing it :)

These are cool, but a bit hard to line up. Id suggest putting a black bar between all the pictures so its easyer.

Thanks! :D Hmm... Probably you're right about that- though, I personally didn't find it much easier with a black bar in between

:excited: it works!! (first time I'm trying this). Very cool effect, definitely a fav :aww: must be very detailed work to make this.

OrmIrian Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That's great! I'm glad you see it! :D
Actually, it's not that difficult- you can do this with every picture you want.
At first, you just have two indentical pictures on each side and then you change one: Everything in the background you move inwards and everything in the foreground you move outwards.. The more something is in the back/foreground, the more you need to move it.
That's why this works better with digital works, since you already got the layers there... at least if you don't work like I do and always get a huge chaos of layers in the end... :P
Oh, and thanks for the fav! :boogie:

Ooh with layers indeed. Hm I don't have the material for digital drawing, but a friend of me has (mysticwolfy). Maybe she can make a stereoscopic drawing if she wants to, she also works with tons of layers XD.. I'll defenitily ask her =D

Ha no problem, besides the stereoscopic cool effect, the drawings themselves are also very nice =D

It would be also possible for traditionally made pictures, but you would need some kind of programm to change the things (maybe Gimp)
But yeah, why not asking your friend? :D

Thanks! :hug:

Hehe, I never delete any psd-files, no matter how old... I lost some of my first ones though, but they were made on good, old Gimp :P
But it's also possible to do it, if everything is on just one layer- it just needs a little bit longer :P

By the way, did you know "Anaglyph" picture that need 3D glasses to watch, eh?

...Like this one (include stereoscopic) :pointr: [link]

I think it's cool too. Unfortunately, I don't have 3D glasses to watch ^^;

Well, I know them, but I don't know how to do them.. and I don't have such a glass either :P
I would love to know how to do a 3D picture with those reald glasses- I have one at home from the cinema.. but I guess this would be slightely more complicated. *sigh*

Cool! Some of them don't resolve very well, like the sword. But the last one resolves very well. On some I can tell that they're just stacked like layers though. I love these magic eye things =) I think I have already destroyed my eyes looking at them.

OrmIrian Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you! :)
Yeah, you're right- part of the problem is that I work kind of chaotic.. means the sword is for example not just on one layer, but on 15 different ones and partly linked with the background :P Some of them were less chaotic and for that reason more easy to make 3D.. and I definitaly should have spent more time with refining the 3D effect in some pictures :D
I glad you like the last one- I quite like the katana-one because of the tiny particles flying around :love:
Oh :O Well, I hope that these pictures don't harm the eyes.. or I will probabely stop doing them :P

OrmIrian Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, I think you're right.. Afterall, all you do is looking at something in the middle- and looking at something that actually don't exist =P
Yeah, it's probably because of that. Well, I did make it 3D mostly because of the particles and I rushed a little bit with the rest.. :P And now you say it, there is really no midground..

:iconmeganbednarz:
meganbednarz Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2010   General Artist
haha, I don't think they really harm the eyes, it's like eye-exercise probably. The katana one is just harder to make out because it's so thin I think, so since the stereoscopic effect is horizontal, it kind of appears strange.

Oh, actually it would be really easy to do them, if you don't paint everything on just one layer or maybe on 100 different ones (the last one I do the whole time :P )
Basically you start with two exact pictures on each side and then start to move certain things: The foreground you need to move outwards and the background needs to be moved towards the middle. The more something is in the background, the more you need to move it towards the middle.
Well, and if you look now at the picture it's already 3D. :D

Oh, I meant looking at them XD
I didn't appreciate it so much until I could fix my eyes XD
Oh lord, I couldn't resist. I did one too, but I don't think mine turned out as good as yours. My paintings tend to not have as much background, so less bg=less layers..

:iconormirian:
OrmIrian Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh. :XD: Oh well, I forgot about that, probably because I do it more or less automatical... my right eye started to hurt for some reason.. Probably because I do it far too often :XD:
Well, if you use something thin to focus on it's more easy to get the 3D object :)
Ohhh.. I want to see it! :love: I'm sure it looks great :nod:
You can do more layers on a creature too- like the head in the foreground, the legs are usually also a little bit in the foreground (or in the background)... only difficult thing is to merge the layers smoothely together- it looks better if you don't move it too much on the same creature :)
I got the idea of =Shockbolt - you should check out his newest one, it's just pure awesome: [link]

Yes, my eyes hurt a lot yesterday because I never did it XD I can do it pretty quickly now, I practiced

xD I'll figure out some other ones later

I do kind of like how this works
It's a great idea!

I like that on the sword the drops are really out, and the other ones all have something good to them

Hehe, I have looked at pictures like this before, but I had quite a big break inbetween :P

Aww, that looks great! :D Somehow the 3D effect makes pictures look always much more lively- they look like really with the effect :giggle:

Yup, it's really awesome that it works like this- all because of our fantastic brain! :D

Yeah, I like the katana-one also because of the drops :D
I'm not sure if you have seen the one on the bottom (swamp dragon) yet- I added it later, but I thought I don't need to bother my watchers with the update :P

I had to try to make my eyes stop going cross xD

:3 I do agree. When I have more time, I have to try it with more pictures.

Yeah! I noticed you added that. It seems like it has the most layers- so many of those pillars and plants, haha, it turned out great! : ) My favorites got to be the spiney one and the dragon coyote one, oh, the standing dragon, oh, ah. They're all pretty good : p

Yeah, that would be great :)

Thank you! :aww: I'm really, really glad you like them. Yeah, the Swampdragon has probably the more different layers than others, but it was still easier to make it 3D, because everything was more or less on a seperate layer :P

Sweet! I love these things!
I can usually get it in like two seconds, I've trained my eyes. =D

The third one is my favorite, lots of depth there. Awesome job!
Now I just need to find a tutorial for how to make these things..

OrmIrian Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Aww, thank I glad you like them! :D
I can even scroll down the list without losing the focus! :D But right now my eyes feel a little bit weird- maybe it's not really healthy to do it? :O Well, but it shouldn't be harmfull- all you do is staring holes in the air- maybe my eyes are just not used to it :P

I like this one too- although I almost prefer the one with the katana- I like those small paricles flying around :)

It's not really difficult to do- you need an excact copy of a picture on each side and one you change a little bit: Everthing that belongs to the foreground, you move outwards (like when you change the right side, you move it towards the right side) and if it's in the background you move it towards the middle. The more something is in the back/foreground the more you need to move it. :)

Its a lot easier to get it once, then scroll the page, instead of fixing your eyes every time. Feels kinda weird though. xP
I find that after I look at these stereoscopic images for awhile, my eyes keep wanting to focus the same way on other things. Which obviously does not work. Just ends up making me look like a fool. xD

Ahh I'll have to try that out then!

:iconormirian:
OrmIrian Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yep, it definitaly is- it's also weird if something like a little bit dust flys directly were you actually focus on.. It really strange to see something near sharp, as well as something further away :P
That would be indeed ..weird if you walk around like that :O Hehe, well, I found out that looking at it at a great(er) distance also helps a little bit- probably because you don't need to cross your eyes that much :D

Yeeesss, do it! I would love to see some 3D pictures from you :)

Huh? You mean they're too small? Or can't you see it? If the last is the case, I recommend to use something thin to focus on (like a pencil), until you see three blurry pictures.

Oh- na gut, dann versuche ich das mal irgendwie zu erklären :)
Grundsätzlich ist es gar nicht so schwer- du nimmst am besten einen dünnen Gegenstand (z.B. ein Bleistift) und hälst ihn etwa in der Mitte von Bildschirm und Augen hin (etwas oberhalb eines der Doppelbilder). Du schaust einfach mal den Gegenstand an und nun sollten die Bilder ganz verschwommen sein und vermutlich sind da plötzlich vier oder drei Bilder statt nur zwei.
Falls es vier sind, verschiebst du deinen Gegenstand ein wenig nach vorne oder hinten, bis es drei sind.
Sobald das so ist kannst du mal warten, vermutlich fängt es an zu pulsieren, weil dein Hirn damit beschäftig ist beide Bilder zu verschmelzen.. nach einer Weile sollte das Bild in der Mitte dann 3D sein.
Ich hoffe das hilft dir ein wenig weiter. :)
