3D Chalk Art

3D Chalk Art

3D chalk art has a long history and is known by many names. Some of those include 3D street painting, chalk painting, and my favorite anamorphic art. This form of art and painting dates back to before the 16th century. The process begins by determining the viewing hight and distance from the painting. Once the proper figures are calculated  and reference lines are established, the drawing can then be transferred to the grid and the painting or chalkinging can begin. When viewed from any other angle or height than the desired view point the painting looks distorted. When viewed at the proper view point, an illusion of depth and 3 dimensions is achieved.

World famous sculptor and ephemeral artist Sean Fitzpatrick recently launched his new website www.3Dchalk.com to showcase his talents with anamorphic 3D chalk drawing. While many of his clients are corporations and event planners, Sean also works directly with private clients to create temporary and  permanent showcase pieces for home, office, or corporate headquarters all over the United States and beyond! In addition to his new venture, Sean also features exquisite sand snow and ice sculptures and fabulously detailed pumpkin carvings. When asked about his new-found passion for 3D chalk, he replied simply,”3D chalk  fits seamlessly with our mission statement of creating an art form that is a metaphor for life.”

Green Lantern Power Ring

Green Lantern Power Ring

Another one of my favorite comics is  the Green Lantern. I’m not sure how true to  the original story the new movie will be, but I’m already impressed with the new design for Hal Jordan’s Power Ring.  For those of you not familiar with the story, Hal was the first human to be selected to join the elite corp of Green Lanterns.  I’ve always wanted to design a ring in Cinema 4D so this was a perfect opportunity. Here are a few screen shots of my initial attempts. Once I have the ring prototype created I’ll repost this article with new pictures or the actual ring. For now here are the 3D renderings.

The Hammer of Thor

The Hammer of Thor

I am a self admitted comic book geek. When I saw the  most recent movie version of Thor, there was one thing that stood out to me. Many of the coolest super heroes have  a prop that is uniquely their own. Batman has his utility belt, Spiderman has his web, Wonder Woman has her golden lasso and Thor has his hammer. The prop artists did such a great  job reinventing something so simple.  When I first saw it, I thought to myself, ” That is a work of art!”

Being a professional sculptor and full-time artist, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to create a digital 3D model of this iconic hammer. Below I have posted a few photos of the finished project that I created in Cinema 4D.

 The coolest thing about being able to create a digital file like this, is that technology actually exists that allow me to have this file transformed into an actual physical 3D proto-type. 3D printers have been around for a while now. It wasn’t until a small company in the Netherlands was formed, that 3D printing really started to hit the main stream. The technology is advancing at a rapid pace and getting better and more cost-effective every day. Check out Shapeways to find out more on this awesome technology. In the mean time I hope you enjoy these photos. Remember, whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of  THOR!
