S’More Creative 3D paintings!

This French artist known asĀ ShakaĀ creates highly engaging and creative 3DĀ paintings!

He creates the 3D effect by firstĀ sculpting shapes directly onto theĀ canvas, then he covers them with layers ofĀ paint…..The end results are high impact, emotive images that seem to almost reach right out the canvas to touch you! šŸ˜€

Amazing 3D Fish Paintings!!

I was blown away by these fantastic 3D paintings done by JapaneseĀ artistĀ Riusuke Fukahori.

EachĀ 3D paintingĀ consists of multipleĀ transparentĀ layers, formed by pouring liquid resin intoĀ woodenĀ containers. When each layer becomes solid it is painted.Ā By repeating this process, the artist is able to createĀ beautiful lifelike designs.

TheseĀ eerilyĀ amazing photos are in fact real and they were taken by an aid worker in Sindh,Pakistan in 2010. When heavy floods hit the regionĀ millions of spiders took to the trees to spin their webs. For more on thisĀ uniqueĀ phenomenon see the National Geographic website.

Despite the unusual after effects of the flooding, one should not forget the humanity of the situation, and that many have died and lost everything in these devastating floods. So if you feel compelled to share this story or photos, please also remember the 5 million displaced people who still need help to rebuild their homes, just like the spiders.
